SLOIKA is a unique distortion pedal utilizing multiple bands of distortion to simulate multiple amplifiers set at different gain levels. Capable of very heavy distortion, the SLOIKA (like all Wolftone pedals) is extremely musical and very responsive to a player’s dynamics.
SLOIKA is designed to create a transparent distortion allowing you to retain the sound of your guitar and amp. This pedal will not mask your equipment’s tone. Single or humbucking pickups are still clearly heard and articulated and you can easily modulate between light or heavy distortion using picking dynamics. Very sensitive to input levels, SLOIKA allows you to control the amount of distortion from your guitar. Want a clean sound? Just back off the guitar’s volume. Searing distortion is just a matter of playing harder or cranking the guitar volume. And SLOIKA enables a seamless transition from distortion into clean when you play a full chord and let it sustain.
The SLOIKA is a combination of 8 parallel distortion bands. The interaction between the DRIVE and SATURATE settings determines how these bands effect your sound. To really hear the strengths of this pedal, use a loud, clean amp.

Another innovative WOLFTONE pedal from the mind of Todd Wolfgram!
“The Sloika is the basis of my live tone. It gets stepped on once during our show (before the first song) and never gets turned off. I need a backup or I’ll be in trouble!” – Jon Skibic (Afghan Whigs)
“Malekko has scrunched several of their circuits into custom, bud-box sized chassis with lower-profiles and rounded edges. Sleek and sexy, these new versions sport gorgeous graphics and exude an unmistakable air of quality.” – Premier Guitar
