Drums might not be the perfect instrument to be processed through a stomp-box styled distortion effect, but the process can yield some sonically interesting results. The examples below demonstrate the natural high and low shelving of the processor's input and output sections, as well as its tonal shaping abilities and fierce distortion stage. To our ears the effect can be at times far too shrill in the high frequencies and far too resonantly boomy in the lows and mids, but then again this effect was meant to drive the preamp stage valves of a guitar amplifier, not to be directly applied to crash cymbals and toms! However, the option of blending the dry drum track with a parallel distortion track exists and can really help drums and percussion to cut through a mix.
As the effect is mono only (like the hardware), the drum tracks have all been mixed as such.
