Tech 21's XXL Original is a distortion pedal that can be used with any electronic instrument. I've only used it with electric guitar, and it's also worth noting that the also make an XXL specifically designed for bass and one for guitar as well. It's an analog pedal and it has 1/4" connections for input and output as well as a jack for your power supply. It isn't rack mountable as it's a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

Using the Tech 21 XXL Original isn't very difficult as it's got some pretty basic parameters to work with. The three basic ones that you see on pretty much all distortion and overdrive pedals are it's parameters for level, tone, and drive. However, it also has a knob for warp, which is a unique parameter to this pedal and essentially seems to work as a resonance filter. A manual shouldn't be necessary here.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of the Tech 21 XXL Original is outstanding all the way around. There is a reason that these pedals are quite popular and it's mostly because of the great sound it's got. It's a really thick and meaty sort of distortion, and it's definitley more of a traditional distortion than overdrive or fuzz. The warp parameter opens up a new palette of sounds, as this isn't a typical parameter and it allows for some really cool potential manipulation to your sound.

OVERALL OPINION

The Tech 21 XXL Original is definitley a pedal you should consider if you're looking for a distortion pedal for your guitar or otherwise. While it wouldn't necessarily be my first all around choice, it's still a very good one and is a pedal absolutely worth exploring. The price is pretty reasonable for a pedal of this type, but this isn't going to be the best bang for your buck out there. This pedal is definitely the real deal, it's just a matter of what color you'll prefer...
