Rivera Metal Shaman
MSRP £225

Guitarist said: “This pedal’s distortion capability is insane – there’s no other word for it – but what’s more important is how much control there is. The EQ is massively powerful, and if you want to be heard, it’s exceptional”

Marshall JTM1 combo

Guitarist said: “Crank it up with a decent Les Paul, and it’s uncannily close to the sound you’ve heard on the infamous Bluesbreakers Beano album, even more so using the head plugged into a 2 x 12 open-backed cab”
