NEXI Industries NXI-MTD-01UD Overview

  • 1Description

The NEXI Industries Urban Series Metal Distortion Pedal is a stompbox designed to work with the company's Solution pedalboards. However, it also works with standard pedal chains and conventional pedalboards.

Featuring an all-analog construction in an all-metal chassis, the Urban Series Metal Distortion provides a heavy sound that fits right at home in 80s, 90s, and modern-day metal contexts. The sound of the pedal can be manipulated via three controls: Distortion, Tone, and Volume. Engaging and bypassing the pedal is as simple as stomping on the large rubberized footswitch.

Whether you're going for pinch-harmonics in a lead break or palm-muted chugs in the rhythm part, the pedal excels at providing a gnarled, screaming tone without sacrificing timbral clarity. Even at high gains, notes retain plenty of articulation and definition. The pedal utilizes a true bypass circuit, so when it's not in use, no trace of the circuitry impacts your tone.

Though intended for use with Solution pedalboards, this pedal can also work with most setups. Simply remove the rubberized pads on the unit, and you'll find all the customary I/O jacks and connectivity options, including a slot for a 9V battery or your own power supply. Either way, the pedal is sure to bring you the gritty sound you expect from an analog stompbox.

The Solution
Recognizing that pedalboards can often be ungainly, NEXI Industries sought out to fix the conundrum of exposed connector cables, multiple power bricks, and the variable condition of day-to-day gigging life. The result is a pedalboard that is said to be splash proof, with no exposed cables or cords. The board even sports an adjustable boost function, a tuner, and a channel switcher for your amp. They call it The Solution.

Into this pedalboard, guitarists have the ability to plug a whole ecosystem of modular, analog pedals in any order they choose—and this is where the Urban Series Metal Distortion pedal comes in: you can plug this pedal directly into your Solution pedalboard by means of a multipin connection on the rear.

Were you to do so, you wouldn't need a separate 1/4" connection for the pedal's input or output, a 9V battery, a BOSS-style 9V power adapter, or a bunch of hook-and-loop fastener scuffing up the back of the stompbox. Yet the company recognizes that guitarists want the option to use the pedal however they'd like, so all the conventional I/O and powering methods are on hand.
