Zvex Vexter Box Of Metal Effects Pedal (Ex-Display)
The Z.Vex Vexter Box of Metal is an aggressive high-gain pedal with a highly-effective built in switchable gate which dramatically reduces noise and unwanted feedback. Its gain and tonal characteristics are somewhat similar to high gain tube amplifiers that have been the staple of hard rock and metal sounds since the 80's. On the right, there is a true-bypass switch with an indicator LED to bypass the entire effect. On the left is a gate switch which is only effective when the pedal is on (the gate cannot be used separately). When the gates LED on the left side of the pedal is ON, the gate will be active whenever the pedal is turned on. The gate is very useful for cleaning up any noise between palm-muted chords and lead phrases, but may be switched off to initiate feedback or to stretch out soloed notes that are fading into noise. Switching off and on the gate is silent so the gating action of the pedal can instantly be changed during any part of the performance to fluidly integrate soloing and palm-muted chords.

The Controls -
Adjust for your playing styles. When fully clockwise, palm-muting will create an audible thump and bumping the strings will open the gate. Turn down to make the guitar tighter. Gate is unaffected by the other controls.
Sets the amount of distortion. The Box of Metal does NOT clean up. This control goes from hard to very hard. It may crackle when turned….this is perfectly normal.
Adjusts the treble content. Use this in tandem with your amps presence and treble controls to get the precise top-end texture…the presence control is very important on your amp, if you have one.
Adjust to accentuate or scoop out mids.
Sets the bass / Sub-Bass level
Sets the output volume of the pedal
Note that the LED on the RIGHT is for the BYPASS switch and the LED on the LEFT is for the GATE.
The Drive and control is based on the ZVEX original Super Hard On gain control, so it may crackle when turned. This is perfectly normal.
