This is just a classic
Ozzy Esen, 25.08.2019
I?ve been using lots of boutique pedals but I have returned to basics with this pedal. Drive section sounds great especially on a cleaner / at the edge of breakup set amp, but I don?t necessarily use it for this purpose.
It works exceptionally well with darker guitars such as Les Pauls because it removes a lot of the low end before you hit the amp by setting the output gain to maximum. When this low en is removed it gives you a much clear and punchy drive signal.

Lots of boutique takes of this pedal do not cut the low end as much, and they have a much higher output level. But the amount of output gain and low end cut I find that just correct.

This is a classic and it does not need to get fixed. So if you?re in doubt I highly recommend this overdrive.

Boosting my amp very well.
explorerc, 26.06.2020
I love this pedal, its a classic. I saw it in many pedalboards, so I wanted to have one as well. It works well with my amp DSL1 Head Marshall. And there was battery inside as well when I received it. So good quality, it feels durable. It is not very gainy pedal its OD pedal, if you are looking for very gainy tones, I dont think you can get from this pedal. It is great with the tube amplifier. Sounds great !

Cheap but effective distortion
nurk, 04.03.2020
This pedal is quite cheap. That being considered, the construction quality seems to be quite high, with most of the components made out of metal and not plastic.
It provides a pretty decent bang for the buck and I would reccomend it to anyone looking for a decent Overdrive without going broke.
