The Vemuram Butter Machine, a Michael Landau signature distortion pedal, epitomises precision engineering and artistry. This distortion pedal is the culmination of a meticulous two year collaboration between Vemuram and session guitar legend Michael Landau, reflecting his quest for a perfect overdrive and distortion sound.

The Sparkle trim pot, centred around 6kHz, lets you add a touch of high end crunch, perfect for cutting through the mix without harshness. Meanwhile, the Low Mid trim pot ensures the bottom end remains full and balanced, adding depth and warmth to your tone. These features make the Vemuram Butter Machine adaptable to various rigs and playing styles, whether you’re on stage or in the studio.

What sets the Vemuram Butter Machine apart is its ability to maintain clarity and punch, even at lower volumes. This makes it ideal for dynamic playing, preserving the integrity and responsiveness of your performance. The distortion pedal offers everything from subtle overdrive to intense distortion, making it a versatile tool for any guitarist.
