Tone City have found their place producing incredible pedals at a cost most people though impossible. Well they are here to impress again with the Model M a classic rock overdrive pedal that emulates one of the worlds most popular amps. Even though Tone City won’t say what they modeled this pedal after I think between the name and the gold/black design we can take a guess at a Marshall style amplifier.
Crunch or High Gain
Because these classic British amplifiers covered generations of different tones the Model M has tried to model both their crunch and high gain tones. In crunch mode you get all of the classic rock tones that can be found on countless blues and rock records throughout the years.
In high gain mode you get a more modern JCM like tone that has a powerful midrange and as the name suggests a lot more gain. This will take you from classic rock to heavy metal and pretty much any point in between so even if you want something heavy this can deliver. Plus with the added boost function you can really take this to another level.
When you hear about a pedal with two different gain modes as well as a boost switch your probably think it has a tonne of different knobs and switches. Nope the Model M relies on just a select few controls including Crunch Gain , High Gain Gain, Volume, Tone and Boost. Don’t let you fool this though as you can take the tone from mid boosted classic to scooped mids metal without the need of any other pedals in your rig.
