Be­cause it’s called the Pugilist you might ex­pect it to de­liver bru­tal dis­tor­tion, but while it can def­i­nitely do that there’s a sub­tler side to this pedal. What it of­fers are dual gain en­gines (A and B) linked to a Blend knob so you can have 100 per cent A or B or a mix of both. This is a bril­liant fea­ture as there’s a wide vari­a­tion of tone avail­able from blend­ing the two chan­nels es­pe­cially as each has its own ad­justable Gain and Tone.

Chan­nel A of­fers a slightly milder dis­tor­tion than B so you can use a touch of A with bright­ened tone to add clar­ity and pick at­tack to the sat­u­rated sound of B or have a mix­ture of both rem­i­nis­cent of play­ing through two amps. You can also choose to run the two en­gines in se­ries where full-on high-gain sound with rich har­mon­ics is pretty much guar­an­teed. The Pugilist is also ca­pa­ble of raunchy over­drive at lower lev­els of gain. Ver­dict Pro­vid­ing plenty of vari­a­tion on the dis­tor­tion/drive theme, a pedal with two en­gines at this price is a steal
