The None More Black is an ultra high gain distortion that takes concepts from all of my favorite amps from the 80s to the present.  No clipping diodes and no op amps,  this purely discrete circuit oozes an organic character that eludes other pedals in the field.

Its unique eq controls allow for a very wide range of tones from ultra scooped to modern midrange punch.  The gain control goes from vintage 800 style to all out mayhem.  Scroll down for more info.   

Build time is usually 2-4 weeks or so



All demos played poorly by Menatone unless otherwise noted.  Amp is a princeton style 5w running into a Ox Amp Top Box.  Amp settings are very clean to not hide the sound of the pedal.
