    Dr Scientist Elements

    Posted by Gerald Garner on 10th Aug 2020

    I bought the Elements because it is designed as a high gain pedal, but it is truly very versatile. For Metal it sounds amazing which is what i use it for, but it will give you anything you want from clean to modern Djent. It is soooo tweakable!! It is great as a clean boost, EQ, low gain and of course high gain. Truly a swiss army knife of dirt!
