This is possibly the most evenly balanced, musically useful overdrive I’ve ever come across. With the Gain at 12 o’clock, it delivers a wonderfully subtle crunch sound. Crank up the Gain and you get progressively heavier saturation that never becomes obtrusive on your fundamental tone. Give the Tone knob a twist to three o’ clock, and it adds a nice chime to high-gain sounds. Even when used in conjunction with other gain-inducing pedals and amps, this pedal always sounds upfront and present when you kick it on. Well done!
Kudos:Cool looking. Delivers responsive, fabulously transparent overdrive tones.
Concerns:Might not pack enough distortion for hardcore metalheads.
