Black Arts Toneworks Tres Diablos Ruidosos
The Black Arts Toneworks Tres Diablos Ruidosos is as classic as a plate of Nachos,a cerveza and a shot of Tequilla.
Three Cascading Gainstages – “Three Rowdy Devils”
There are three Master Volumes or gainstage knobs so each element of the circuit (boost, overdrive and fuzz) can be mixed together.
The left is the most bright boost – overdrive type sound, the middle is more fuzzstortion, and the right is a full one fuzz.
This, for a multifaceted pedal , gives a huge range of tone possibilities with the simplicity of having just three knobs on the pedal.
The foot-switch is a simple on – off.
What does it play like?
This one can go from a slight sweet boost, edgy OD, classic 70s rock distortion to classic 70s and early 80s proto-metal crunch. Dime all three masters and get a gnarly oversaturated fuzz.
The Diablos respond well to guitar knob input so you can create layered gain working with your guitar and amplifier.
It is also very responsive to the guitar input. Backing off the guitar volume control gives another tone palate to play with. You can really layer the gain with this approach. Sometimes less really is more.
