German effects brand KMA Machines is promising big things from the latest effort to join its roster, the Logan distortion pedal.

Promising to “transcend the well-known boundaries of overdrive”, the Logan boasts an active three-band EQ, including a footswitchable parametric mid-EQ, which can be positioned pre- or post-gain, while you can use an external expression pedal to sweep the filter, too.

KMA is also claiming high-headroom (up to 25dB) operation and an “open and touch-responsive” drive.

The Logan is available now for £175/€189/$219. See KMA Machines for more.
