The Tom'sline AMC-3 Manic High Gain Distortion guitar pedal is a compact distortion pedal that emulates the storied Suhr Riot pedal. It's a simple pedal layout with the jack inputs on the sides as you'd expect and a case constructed with aluminium alloy to withstand heavy onstage stomping.
The Tom'sline AMC-3 Manic has three knobs, one for volume, one for tone and a third for gain giving you several options for tonal sculpting. The layout is very intuitive, meaning you spend less time figuring out and more time playing. The ATP-3 Tube Pusher is also True Bypass so it won't colour your tone when disengaged.
There is also a three-way toggle switch that changes the mode of the pedal. The 'soft' setting gives you a natural sounding distortion that is dynamic, the 'tense' setting gets you a tight, high gain sound and 'normal' gives you a vintage high gain with clear definition.
Pedalboard Friendly Size
The LED indicator is bright enough to be seen on the darkest of stages and the metal stop bar is really handy, preventing you from knocking the knobs with your foot whilst playing, as well as protecting them from any heavy-footed stomping.
The footprint of the AMC-3 Manic is minimal so it will fit on any board and requires a 9V power supply for operation. Included in the box is some 3M velcro hook and loop so you can stick it on your board straight away and get stuck in.
