"This pedal does a great job of driving your guitar into your amp. I would say that in a word this is a drive pedal because it can put your guitar through an evolution of drive stages all the way from warmth and presence with its preamp stage to tight and pretty heavy distortion with the pedal fully engaged and hot using it’s Detonator mode."

Like every diktator, this one is rough too, but it can be soft – it has sweetness, but it also has balls.
It is a unique two channel combination of clean, transparent preamp / booster and rich overdrive / distortion that can work independently.
Detonator channel is an extremely versatile drive that takes your tone from light crunch, through rich, fat overdrive, all the way to tight distortion. Two toggle switches are responsible for different tonal and gain shapes, and with two-band active tone control, any desired frequency is easily cut or boosted. Another original feature is a Dynamic-O-Meter™ (Diktator’s eyes), which is a visual indicator of the drive’s dynamic response.
Fuse channel used alone is an ultra transparent preamp which refines the original tone, making your guitar sound bigger and easily pushes amplifier into the natural overdrive. Used in conjunction with detonator channel, it really hits your amp hard and is an excellent booster for lead parts, solos, etc…
Diktator also utilizes improved power supply filtering circuitry, RF rejection filter, smart PCB routing, no-wire design, audiophile quality components and true bypass switching system.
All these features assure the Diktator's domination over your guitar tone and representative place on the pedalboard. Enjoy!
