Aria Metal Madness

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Pantsman, Aug 12, 2005.


  1. Hello all,

    Yesterday marked the day when i bought my first effect pedal, the Aria Metal Madness. I tried it in the store as well as a Danelectro Wasabi Distortion, which was quite dissapointment IMO. The Aria doesn't really do anything but in yer face fuzz but thats all i want, the best bit however is the range of tones from this! With Low and high cut/boost on one concentric knob and Mid freq(200Hz - 5Khz)/Level on another, Gain and Level round out the knobs. :p

    Built very well, i would never expect it to break, ever!

    Ohh i forgot, it only cost me AU$85 whereas the Boss Metal Zone is $239'ish.

    nice man! australia sucks for music gear prices. my motto is: never buy in store.. of course that does mean you cant go in there and try everything out!
     
  3. I did buy it from the store :D 3 year warranty, and 2 free 3 foot cables :p
