The doom-laden upcoming animated classic, The Planet of Doom, has spawned it’s first-ever guitar pedal: a distortion and fuzz combo built to blow ’em away with its sonic mayhem and precision controls.
Celebrating the unholy matrimony of art and metal, the limited-edition It’s Electric! pedal is a must-have for all lovers of unique, high-end collectible gear. The first demo is available now exclusively at http://www.theplanetofdoom.com/
“The sound of The Pedal of Doom is ultra-heavy music, the revving of motorcycles and your sword slashing through flesh,” says It’s Electric!. “We boxed these up and made this insane pedal so anyone can wield its power.”
The pedal is a ripping fuzz at heart, with a unique control labeled Parasite that lets you change the character of your tone all the way to a raw, high-voltage distortion. The versatility of the settings (including outrageous controls Overkill, Attack, and Decapitate) let you tweak your tone up to a sputtery, glitchy tone, “like an orc choking on its own blood,” adds It’s Electric!.
Custom-built by an award-winning boutique pedal crew, It’s Electric, who previously built pedals for Motley Crue, Misfits, and Gary Holt of Slayer, each pedal of the limited edition is made in the EU. Rest assured that this is studio-grade gear that will cast fear in the hearts of your enemies for many years to come. The eye-popping art on the pedal was created by Pedal of Doom‘s psychedelic art freak, Skinner.
The stoner animation, The Planet of Doom, has tapped some of today’s heaviest bands and the trippiest artists to create their respective chapters, with new crushing fantasies of motorcycles, drugs, and sorcery.
The proceeds from the sale of the limited-edition pedal will contribute to the making of this future animated classic.
OVERKILL sets the volume of your output. The maximum setting is insanely loud. Seriously. We’re not liable for any structural damage to your house.
DOOM controls the amount of gain and saturation. It is placed before gain stages so higher settings provide more sustain, more saturation and a doomier tone.
DECAPITATE is a low-pass filter that cuts your highs. This control helps you optimize the output for different amps and achieve a fully balanced wall-of-doom sound.
ATTACK is a high pass filter, placed before the gain stages. It is designed and tuned to control the tightness of your bass response. A lower settings with less bass results in a faster attack and a higher tone definition. A higher settings pushes the lower frequencies and results in a liquid tone with a fuzzy low-end and a longer sustain.
PARASITE is your secret weapon, your tooth-edge sword that changes the character of the pedal by controlling its voltage. A lower setting provides a gated, velcro-like fuzzy tone. Higher settings bring you closer to distortion kingdom with a thick, dirty, raw tone. Parasite affects your Doom settings (and vice-versa). An extreme Parasite settings gives you a uniquely sputtery, gated, glitchy tone – like an orc choking on its own blood.
Engage The Planet of Doom pedal the same way you treat an orc skulls: stomp on it! Once the LEDs eyes are illuminated, brace yourself: this beast is louder than a chopper ripping through an army of pure terror. Adjust your pedal volume to match your amp, your desired boost level, or the amount of blood you want gushing from the ears of your enemies. Be warned: this pedal takes no prisoners!
The bypass mode is True Bypass.
