Engineered for the Warriors of Shred

The KHG – Killer High Gain – is the first masterpiece from Killer Rig, crafted not just to meet expectations, but to create legends.

This is a pedal that doesn’t just push the envelope – it shreds it to pieces with a bone-crushing gain that breathes fire into every chord and solo. And it’s done without that nasty angry bee solid state clipping sound that is found in most other pedals.

Refined Raw Power

We know that true high gain isn’t just about raw power – it’s about control, clarity, feel, and character. That’s why the KHG is engineered with precision, allowing for a spectrum of distortion that ranges from a growl to a scream.

It’s versatile enough for the bluesy guitarist looking to add a bit of edge, yet powerful enough for the metalhead seeking the ultimate tube amp like distortion.

With a twist of the Saturate control knob, the character of the distortion radically changes to meet you where you’re at.

Killer Rig High Gain Pedal Controls

Your Tone, Turbocharged

The KHG’s intuitive design ensures that you harness the monstrous tone within. Dial in your sound with ease using the responsive controls for gain, level, and tone. From warm, rich lows to searing highs, your search for the best high-gain tone ends here.

The mid-range control is also very powerful. Scoop your mids and find classic tones with ease. Turn the knob the other way and cut through any mix.

Built to Endure

Every KHG pedal is constructed with the rigors of the road in mind. Housed in a robust chassis, this is a pedal that not only withstands the rigors of touring, but thrives under pressure. True bypass ensures that when it’s off, your tone remains pure and uncolored.

Plus, top mounted jacks reduce the footprint of the KHG pedal on your board. Allowing you to mount it in a way that keeps your pedal board clean and efficient!
