KHDK Kirk Hammett Ghoul JR Overdrive Pedal - Great Tone In A Tiny Package

KHDK has released the new KHDK Kirk Hammett Ghoul JR Overdrive pedal, featuring Kirk Hammett's signature overdrive/distortion tones in a tiny new unit. Following on from the success of the collaborative Ghoul Screamer Pedal, this promises even more gain and the most popular tone sculpting options from its predecessor. It somehow manages to do all this in a pedal no bigger than the palm of your hand.

The Ghoul JR takes the blueprint of the Ghoul Screamer and repackages it with a range of mini toggle switches to give it great versatility. The original Ghoul Screamer gained popularity for the large range of applications it could be used for....

"When it comes to boosting and tightening up metal tones, the Ghoul Screamer is among the best TS-alikes we've used."

The KHDK Ghoul JR takes that same versatility and refines it, following the recent trend of developing micro-sized pedals with full-sized tone. It gives you 3 levels of gain and headroom, from compressed classic sounds through to dynamic cutting tone, onto the new "Full-On" mode; this provides even more distortion than the Ghoul Driver so should keep high-gain players happy.

The Ghoul JR provides a range of tone controls so that the response can be crafted to match the guitar; a particularly important aspect with the rise in popularity of extended range instruments and drop-tunings. KHDK have designed this pedal to work as either a booster or as a complete sound-sculpting tool, so it should find plenty of use among different players.

Kirk Hammett is one of those players whose name is recognised world-wide. With his decades-long career in Metallica, he helped pioneer the Thrash Metal movement. His signature Ghoul Screamer pedal was highly regarded and the Ghoul JR looks set to follow in its footsteps; albeit with a much smaller footprint.
