A no-hassle, great-sounding blues pedal.
The Rogue Blues Distortion pedal creates a warm overdrive distortion effect reminiscent of classic rock and blues tones of the '60s and '70s. It also lets you overdrive your favorite tube amp or solid state amp, creating harmonically rich overdrive and sustain.
Three control knobs let you quickly adjust the amount of distortion, high-end bite and overall volume of the effected sound. A true bypass switch engages and disengages the effect. An LED indicator shows you when the effect is engaged and gets dim when it's time to change the battery.
The Rogue Blues Distortion pedal is made of aluminum and built to last.
- Sturdy, lightweight aluminum case
- True bypass switching
- Easy-to-use Gain, Tone and Level controls

Comments about Rogue Blues Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:
Well, I've got my Rogue Blues Distortion pedal yesterday, and had all evening to test it out.
The pros go first:Build quality seems to be very good: fit & finish are flawless;Packaging is cool too - a great looking gift;Comes with the 9V battery pre-installed.That's about it. Performance-wise, however, it is largely a lost cause, and here is why:Main con for me is the fact that it just butchers the frequency range, especially the lows. I get the bandwidth of a telephone line, if not worse. Thus there is no 'bite' to it, no blues 'girth' - if you'd use a Strat it will get yet thinner and squeaky (and not in a musical way), if you had a semi-hollow, it'll turn it into a thin and squeaky SC.My semi-hollow (given, with some decent custom-wound HB's) sounds just way 'bluesier' plugged in straight into a clean channel than through this pedal.In addition to killing the tone, it also kills sustain - I have no idea how, but it does. And the signal break-up is non-musical, just crappy and flat. Basically what this pedal does is chops the tops of the sine wave without any attempt at sophistication.Just not enough gain, seriously. The best shot at known sounds would be Eric Clapton's version of the Crossroads Blues, although the sound is also unsatisfying as it gets quite muddy and fast picked notes are not resolved.There is no chance to squeeze some soul stuff like BB King or Johnny Lee... just no way. No tone range, plus no sustain. And I have quite nicely sustaining instruments (heavily moded Strat-o-clone and ES-355 clone both with excellent quality parts) that I am very much satisfied with.
On the shelf it goes. Oh - it could get useful for punk sometimes... maybe. Sorry for my frankness, but this is how it all plays out. Rogue could not do any good to the distortion in their amps, and logically they can't do it in pedals as well - consistent enough. $30-$40 is better saved for a nicer 5W tube amp and / or upgraded pick-ups that'll naturally drive it - it'll provide way more blues feel any day.
