Rowin LEF605 - Mini Guitar Heavy Metal Pedal
By: Adam Sherriff on 22 December 2015Amazeballs!!!! I'm usually the kind of jerk that doesn't leave reviews but I've shopped with swamp several times and the service has been awesome. The pedal is tight, no noise, no bs, clear as a bell analogue distortion. I'm not even considering the price tag either. And if anyone says I don't know what I'm talking about then they can jog their pretentious ass's on because I know a good guitar sound, and this little puppy jammed between a tube pre and a basic power amp (similar to outing it in an effects loop instead of in front of your amp) is crunching deliciousness! Credit also has to be given to an extent for versatility, the controls are basic and no nonsense, but the bright and low switch makes a big difference between chugging metal core breakdowns or shredding scooped leads. Overall I'm hell chuffed with this little unit and I played less than what I would spend at noodlebox with a hangover!!!!
Rowin LEF-605 Heavy Metal Guitar Effect Pedal
Capable of replicating the hi-gain guitar tones synonymous with 80's and 90's heavy metal bands, the LEF-605 features Hi, Lo and Off Boost options that can be selected using the 3-way toggle switch. Separate gain and tone controls allow you to sculpt the sound you are after.
With the toggle switch down (Lo- Boost) the pedal lends itself to the more rockier, rhythm and solo parts with the tone knob left up. Wind the tone knob down for that classic "scooped mid" rhythm tone for dirty riffage. In the up position (Hi-Boost) the pedal produces the tone you need for blistering solo's, or some extra power for your chords.
Compact / Miniature Case Size
Advances in circuitry design have made is possible for guitar effect pedals to be built in compact enclosures that literally fit in the palm of your hand. The mini design allows more pedals to fit on your pedalboard and also helps reduce the overall weight.
True Bypass Circuitry
The compact inner circuitry is designed with a 3PDT true bypass switch ensuring an unaltered tone when the pedal is not engaged. A true bypass switch has the ability perform a true bypass of the internal hardware circuit of the pedal, meaning the signal goes straight from the IN to the OUT.
