The Riot, as its name playfully hints, is a high-gain distortion box that will make a small clean tube combo sound like a raging stack. Suhr has heard many distortion boxes and were never quite satisfied with how they sounded or felt with a clean amp. They wanted the sonic characteristics of the distortion and the way the pedal reacted to your touch like a high-gain 100w tube head. After much testing, re-working, and re-builds of the Riot over a period of a year, we are finally satisfied with how it performs and sounds in real world music applications with pro musicians performing live or in the studio. The Riot will make you forget that you're playing through a pedal.
