Excellent
05.02.2017
This is my first purchase from Thomann and I can say I'm pleased. although the shipment took 3 weeks to arrive but that is not Thomann fault, it was the lazy shipping carrier taking too long to dispatch.

Beside this point, Two notes le Lead is impressive, this is not a regular distortion paddle that works on 9v battery, it is preamp that gives good quality sound, the two channel technique is giving a mixture of tone choices, a blend between clean and distorted channel, at some point the tone sounds like Orange amp to my ear.

It takes some time to get the configuration of this preamp, I had to read the manual to understand the fusion and sweep functionality, but once you get it, the preamp can offer a lot.
Another good feature is speaker simulator, excellent feature for anyone who wants to use this preamp for silent recording, MIDI output is very useful.

However, the downside is the tone too trebly for my taste, the gain is not saturated enough. low end is unnoticeable and mid is not punchy enough.
A noise gate is highly recommend as the preamp produce a lot of noise.

overall im satisfy with this product, it served my needs. but bear mind that even this paddle is sounds good for what it offers, it will not be a substitute for a real tube amp.

Good, but actually worth it?
DarioZatti, 18.05.2017
I bought it to use it as my main preamp sound live, as well as in my home studio.
The actual sound of the clean channel is absolutely good, nothing bad to say about it.
The distorted channel has a great tone, but it's quite hard to find the right settings for your guitar, expecially if it's extended range.
I play mainly 8 strings with passive pickups and the gain builds up quite fast. Iit kinda lacks some sort of middle ground for definition (I feel like LeCrunch would be better suited for these instruments).
The fusion settings are a bit tricky, i found no actual usable tones out of them to be honest.
With this being said, if you spend the time with it you can definitly get something great out of it.
The only real down point is that the built in cab sim is awful. If you're getting this unit with the idea of using it as your whole amp+cab rig, just don't.
But, if you record through it with the cab sim off and apply your own cab IR you can get something great for the studio.

Great
Giorgosch, 22.02.2020
has the perfect sound for high-gain metal sound. works great with both active and passive pickups and the clean section is great as well. The only down side is that there is not much use for the fussion mode and i would like a mid control in the clean section
