Let's get it out the way, this pedal sounds best cranked. Known as 'diming' the controls, the Behringer HM300 Heavy Metal Pedal's circuit gained its legendary reputation by setting every control to 10 and letting the mayhem unfold. This gives the characteristic chainsaw-like buzzing distorted tone by pushing the circuit to extreme levels of clipping. This was the sound of Swedish death metal which is also the reason the original circuit has left such a significant legacy. If you need a distortion pedal to propel your tone to crushing new highs and deliver some of the most grinding textures available, the HM300 supplies it in abundance.
