The Abasi Pathos distortion pedal presents an impassioned appeal to the varied sonic needs of the modern guitarist. Designed to retain the feel of an American-style tube amp channel, its versatility is derived from the “smooth” and “edge” voicings that range from an emotive crunch all the way to scorching, yet controlled distortion and sustain. The two voicings can be sculpted with a set of musically-tuned EQ shelves and mid control, as well as potent gain and level controls.
It is these precision tools that allow Pathos to encompass the functionality of several dirt boxes in one – be it a push to a driven amp, a full-on distortion channel in front of a clean amp, or a boost in front of a digital modeler. Crafted in the USA by Tosin Abasi in conjunction with Brian Wampler, Pathos is the choice for any discerning guitarist seeking an array of distortion flavors to emote their musical story.
I'm stoked this pedal is on the market. I just wish it was available 15 years ago.
Very versatile pedal. Just simply a good gravelly sounding distortion. Perfect.
Easy to fine tune and extremely versatile. This is my favorite distortion pedal I’ve owned. Well worth it.
Very dense but not that high gain distortion as I might say. Very cool modern tone and you can easily get a bunch of different tones because there really is a lot of headroom to work with the gain nob. 9/10 easily
It is an amazing and very versatile distortion pedal. Killer hi gain rhythm and solo sound as expected!!! I appreciate a lot though the different voicings and the ability it gives me to use lots of different gain stages from edge of breakup or breakup tones!
