26 Proteus 1 week ago I thought der Heävy Metäl was a brilliant pedal when it came out: the sound of the day, as painstakingly achieved in studios with racks of compression, EQ, überamps, and mic'ing techniques, built into a little box. You were one stomp away from that sound.I didn't want to sound like that, and in its way I found it as hilarious as the Miku pedal...so you know. I didn't get one. But they sold like hotcakes in the music store. Actually, infinitely better than hotcakes. We didn't sell hotcakes in the music store. The diner was down the street, and we told the Roland rep that if sold Heavy Metals to the diner, we were done with the Boss franchise.That showed'em.The real question is: do hotcakes or Heävy Metäls cause more arterial blockage?
