With this King Tone Guitar HeavyHand Jesse Davey continues to decline variations from his best-selling Duellist. With the Soloist, the brand offered us channel A of the latter with some additional functions. With the HeavyHand, it's now the turn of channel B to benefit from a stand-alone pedal with small well-thought-out changes.

Finishing level, it's pretty, as always with the brand. We match the great high-end "boutique" standards of the genre. Quality case, firm knobs, very thick PCB with a very well done assembly. What are the guitar people asking for? Nothing more, everything is there! It's top quality and will last for years without flinching.
So what is this pedal? Well, it's the single-channel version of the Duellist, based on its B channel (circuit inspired by the Bluesbreaker). On the front, a Drive, Tone and Volume knob as well as a Body, which allows you to adjust the lower end of the spectrum. A mini toggle switch acts on the EQ of the pedal. Here, 3 positions: Stock (standard, neutral), Glass (top of the spectrum and brilliance highlighted) and Edge (more sharp / edged). Use this small switch in parallel with the Tone knob and you have maximum versatility to tune your sound as you see fit. Added to this is a second switch that allows you to adjust the clipping method of the pedal (Stock, Open and Comp).

After this little presentation, we grab a Stratocaster and we put ourselves on a nice clean base. At random, a Two-Rock Studio Classic Reverb, just to do it right. And there, like on its big sister the Duellist, it works like hell. The pedal produces a very punchy, very dynamic drive with a very fast response. Everything is perfectly airy, without unwelcome compression with a very "amp-like" side and increased density compared to the historic circuit. The gain range has also been revised slightly upwards. It's very open, with a big clear and tense attack. It works great on a clean, but it also works very well stacked on another Klon or TS808 type pedal. By adopting this kind of configuration, we obtain a very wide range of sound like John Mayer, Dan Patlansky, Philip Sayce...
The interesting bonus compared to the Duelist is the Body button which allows you to broaden the lower end of the spectrum with fuller, denser notes. Also, the mini-toggle switch stock / open / comp allows you to vary the texture of the drive and its attack. The Comp mode is particularly successful. This gives increased versatility to the HeavyHand.

With the HeavyHand, King Tone Guitar once again offers us an extremely well-designed premium overdrive that can be used in many situations.
