    Very interested. Anyone using one? Is it best as its own pre or through the front with a std. Clean channel?

    It’s best as a preamp just like most preamp distortion pedals. I think it was made to have more of a sabbath flavor to it but I’m not sure.

    I haven’t owned one but, it’s been compared to turning tha “fat” switch on on the TightMetalPro.

    If that’s true then i wouldn’t want it. When i engaged the fat switch on my old TMPro, it added more bass but i lost note definition.

    I would equate the sound to using sh*ttier pickups

    Thanks. So I'm not fully clear, but it seems you can get FatMetal sound out of the Tightmetal or vice versa with the flick of a switch. Maybe the TM is more for me and more versatile.
    Anyone got one for salez?

    I think the TM sounded awful in all of the clips online. YMMV though.

    Ive had the TMpro for a few years now. Best highgain ive ever heard in my 20+ yrs of guitarin!
    It was literally modelled after the sound of not only the 5150 but also the ampeg vh140.
    If youre into that super aggressive grindy midrange grunty cutting tone then this is for you.

    Oh yeah i forgot to mention that the TM pro was definitely one of the best preamp pedals I’ve owned.

    Thx for the feedback. I'm keeping my eye out for a used tm if any rank.

    I've actually been more interested in the Fat Metal myself, for more of an old school death metal, greasy, grindy, slime ridden tone. I kinda like what I've heard, but don't know of many people who own it.

    I think acquiring one of each is the only solution.
