There’s no point trying to hide it any further. I’m addicted to distortion pedals. There are so many different kinds. There are so many different manufacturers. I initially was attempting to make my mission 52 different guitar pedals all of varying types and manufacturers. The more I researched the more the mission changed. The mission became a search for the best distortion pedal. It was accidental. I didn’t set out to engineer these results. If I had, I’d have started with the Mission Engineering Delta III because … Mission. Engineering.
Oh well, I gave this intro a shot.
The Delta III is a very versatile distortion pedal which almost makes me feel justified in adding another distortion pedal to this list. Almost. But it’s my list. I can do what I want—which is obvious to anyone following the series. Weekly posts … Bwhahahahahahahaha!
Why is the pedal versatile? Well with the gain down low, it’s a boost pedal enhancing the tones you have coming from your amplifier. That’s handy. With the gain cranked up, it’s a very nice distortion and fuzz pedal—depending on your tone settings. The tone settings themselves are somewhat unique as well.
Most distortion pedals will give you a general tone control or perhaps a three-way tone control option. With that option many guitar players with an interest in metal will scoop those mids out—I can be guilty of this. The Delta III however gives you control over the highs and the lows. Enhance either—or both if you so desire—and get some very cool distorted tones.
There’s a handy little video on the official pedal webpage and also below—just in case you’re too lazy to click the link to that page.
You really should click the link to the official webpage for this pedal though. How else would you get the proper details on this pedal. How else would you buy this pedal?!
I’ve given you three clickable links now. There’s really no excuse.
Disclaimer: I’ve not played this guitar pedal. I have not experienced first-hand the sound or effects of this guitar pedal. That doesn’t matter. It looks awesome, it’s obviously played by winners and I want one.
