Electro-Harmonix Metal Muff Reviews
It does have its functional flaws and the boost changing the tone is a big let down. Some players might not be as bothered by this. The sound is next to amazing and I'm chocked at how this can turn a very sterile clean channel into a full on high gain mesa lead channel.
