Marshall Shredmaster Overdrive/Distortion Pedal
Marshall's Famous ShredMaster Pedal Returns
Marshall's The Guv'nor distortion pedal was a resounding success in the late 1980s, attaining industry-wide acclaim for its authentic British-voiced amp-in-a-box sound. By 1992, the dust had settled, and Marshall was ready to expand its offerings. Enter the ShredMaster, a high-gain pedal that's teeming with real-deal Marshall flavor. Unfortunately, the original stompboxes have long been difficult — and expensive — to obtain on the used market. Well, that's no longer going to be an issue, as Marshall is reissuing this sought-after classic to honor the company's 60th anniversary. The rebooted pedal serves up a direct, one-to-one copy of the original, right down to the iconic graphics, unique enclosure design, and distinctive gold-on-black color scheme. The ShredMaster includes a familiar control set, with a flexible 3-band EQ, plus Gain and Volume knobs, for dialing in your sound. You also get a standard footswitch and a red LED status indicator. There are numerous reasons why the '90s-era ShredMaster is so revered by high-gain aficionados, and this reissue takes everything that's great about the original and re-creates it for today's guitarist.
The Return of a Coveted '90s Legend
The ShredMaster reissue isn't just inspired by the original pedal, it's an exact copy of the original pedal. It includes the original's gold-on-black color scheme, the iconic "Marshall" script, and the distinctively shaped enclosure. If you missed out on the ShredMaster the first time around, stop living in regret. Get your hands on this brand-spanking-new reissue, and make your sonic dreams a stage-diving reality.
Marshall-Flavored High-Gain for Your Pedalboard
Marshall's The Guv'nor was a game changer at the time of its late-'80s release, and the original ShredMaster aimed to take its British-style crunch and tailor it for high-gain enthusiasts. But does the reissue deliver the goods? Well, the guitarists here at Sweetwater certainly believe so. Once we plugged into the ShredMaster, we couldn't get enough. It simply oozes with British-tinged high-gain tones. So, how much gain is on tap? Well, according to Marshall's 1990s print ad, to get more gain, you'd have to put a pickup on your chainsaw. And, thanks to the ShredMaster's 3-band EQ, along with its Gain and Volume knobs, you'll find that dialing in thrash-ready metal tones is a piece of cake.
