The Martyr is based on the preamp of the Marshall Valvestate 8100 amp that defined the sound of 90s death metal.  Now in a convenient pedal that fits on your board, you don’t need to lug around a separate amp.
As of November 1, 2021 we have refreshed the design of the Martyr. We listened to all of the feedback from the last 18 months and incorporated them. The circuit itself remains unchanged. You still get that classic Valvestate tone but in a smaller 125B enclosure with top-mounted jacks. We also eliminated the OD1/OD2 toggle switch because... let's face it: nobody was using OD1. The new Martyr is all high gain OD2 all the time!

Note that even though this is based on the preamp of the VS8100, you can either use this as you would a normal
distortion pedal and plug it into the front end of your amp (what I do) or you can plug it into a power amp or the FX loop return on your traditional amp.

This pedal uses a 9V DC supply like a voodoo labs, one spot, dunlop DC brick, boss psa, etc ONLY.  Using a power supply more than 9V or an AC adapter will void the warranty.  There is circuitry inside the pedal that will boost the voltage that the pedal runs at to ±15V to give lots of headroom, just like the original amp.
The contour control allows you to fine tune the mid frequencies depending on the guitar, speaker, and amp that you're playing through.

Nails the Chuck Schuldiner / Death  guitar tones in spades.
