Pro Tone Pedals has built a reputation on delivering world class modern metal guitar tone but this 3 knob beast is like nothing we’ve done before. The Black Hand utilizes a combination of distortion methodologies to deliver some serious metal tones.
Seeing that the metal community continues to dive deeper and deeper into the low end, we’ve spent countless hours experimenting with extended range and detuned guitars. What we’ve found is that most distortion pedals fall short on the lower register. The chords get soft and therefore lose all bottom end definition. The Black Hand Distortion was designed to address this issue, while delivering string clarity and punishing distortion.
Looking for thick gristly tones from single coils? By cranking the volume and backing the distortion way down, the Black Hand Distortion will give you tones unheard of before from single coils. This setting gives a heavier blues rock sound and crosses over into overdrive pedal territory.
It’s easy to see the Black Hand’s flexibility. Most high gain distortion pedals that excel in metal distortion tones fall apart when being used as an overdrive… but the Black Hand has the flexibility to unify both realms excellently.
3 knob configuration- the 3 knobs are simple by design, while offering a wide range of tonal flexibility. The Black Hand has a surprisingly effective tone sweep under-foot. When coupled with the vast majority of amps these days that readily offer a 3 band EQ, the Black Hand’s tone sweep is meant to augment the tone of your amp, rather than work around it.

- Gain, Tone, and Volume controls
- Operates on a standard 9 volt negative tip BOSS style adapter
- True Hardwire Bypass for noise free operation
