Stoner Metal, Doom, Sludge. I've decided to build a pedal that delivers the unearthly tones that are identified with these three subgenres.
Instead of trying to emulate a classic amp, I've designed a pedal that covers a lot of ground and enables you to dial your own tone using your amp. Weather it is a solid state combo or a big tube amp, the Sludge hammer will turn the clean channel of an amp into a formidable riff-worthy beast.
Gain ranges from medium gain crunch up to an uncompromising wall of sound. At higher gain settings the distortion gets slightly loose and fuzzy. Tone knob has an extreme effect and can be manipulated to smooth out the tone or add a sharp bite to it. Body knob is dedicated for the low mid frequencies (interactive with the tone knob) crank it for more balls. Plenty of headroom is at hand.
