SCM-20 | Crossfire Metal Pedal


Heavy? Nu? Black? Goth? Speed? Symphonic? Viking? Screamo? Unblack? … whatever your flavor of Metal... get caught in the Crossfire.

Metal music has about as many sub-genres as cookies have crumbs. So, it makes sense that those genres and their players need versatile pedals. The CNZ Audio Crossfire Metal (SCM-20) is about as versatile as they come. Following a similar layout to our GDS-20, the SCM swaps the gain knob for a distortion adjustment and makes the toggle an adjustable boost. Those two items are key in giving you a wide range of distortion possibilities without overwhelming your board. Rock on, Metalheads.

Detailed Operation

The Crossfire Metal Pedal from CNZ Audio turns your clean guitar signal into a complete warzone of unique and intense distortion tones. There are insane levels of saturation, distortion and sustain that can be found all with the turn of a few simple knobs!

The Toggle switch allows for a choice between 3 different settings for your pedal. Hi-Boost, having a bit less body and more treble, Boost-Off, having a more mid-range meaty tone, and Lo-Boost, giving a very full mid and deep tone. All 3 choices are great for different genres and effects for any player.

The Volume knob simply allows for the output from this pedal to be easily changed by the user.

The Distortion knob allows for change in the overall fullness or tone of the effect’s over-driven sound. Turning the knob clockwise will make a louder, more saturated and full tone while turning the knob counter-clockwise will make for a great mild distortion effect.

The Tone Knob changes the brightness of the pedal. Adding more tone by turning clockwise will bring out more clarity and high-end gain to your signal, while turning it counterclockwise will let those bass-y and mid range sounds shine through. Inspire Your Music with CNZ Audio!
