Tech 21 NYC U.S. Steel Metal Electric Guitar Distortion Overdrive Effect Pedal

Welcome, you are looking at a great piece. This is the Tech 21 NYC U.S. Steel/U.S. Metal Electric Guitar Distortion Pedal.
Tech 21 has been coming out with great products for over a decade. The look, and, of course, the tone, can only be found at the source.
This pedal has both the 'lawsuit' packaging and new pedal graphics. Tech 21 received a cease-and-desist from U.S. Steel for the branding. It is now called U.S. Metal.
Cool packaging aside, this pedal is one of the best 'metal' distortions on the scene. If you back off the gain and pull up the mids, you get some fantastic edgy blues/rock tones.
Crank up the gain and pull the mids back and you have a true monster. That rectifier tone is right at your fingertips.
From chunky rhythms to over the top sustaining leads, it's in here. The Character knob is very influential in getting a wide range of sounds- from almost vintage to over-the-top gain.
Of course, this is Tech 21, so your guitar responds just like you were playing through a true tube amp- every subtle nuance of your playing comes shining through.
Engage the speaker compensation and the pedal takes on the feel of being run through a Celestion.
The icing on the cake is this beauty is true bypass. This U.S. Steel/Metal is in new condition- still in its original packaging.
This is your chance to get your hands on one of the best distortion pedals on the scene in possibly collectible packaging.
Don't pass this by.
