"The NEW BOSS of distortion pedals."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
This pedal is truly AMAZING when I first plugged my guitar into it. It produced a great tone from the start without touching any of the dials except volume, and it just got better as I went on. Currently, I am running a B.C. Rich Warlock through this pedal into a clean 10-watt practice amp (until my behringer combo gets here) and the sound is truly amazing. The low-end is crushing, and you could easily make the high-end scream as well for ear-splitting solos. The sound is so perfect for an 80's metalhead like myself, that I KNEW, from the moment I plugged in, that THIS pedal had my tone. (And, for those of you who are wondering, I have played many different distortion pedals out there, including BOSS, and this one beats them all, hands down.)
I hate to give out too may 10's, but the features are top-notch on this pedal, and I would choose this over a BOSS pedal any day.
Ease of Use:
Well, it is a pedal, so plug in, and dial a tone (with the four little dials) that suits you and you will be happy.
Built like a tank. I have dropped this thing many times onto the concrete floor of our band room, and it still performs like new.
I had a minor issue with the first pedal I bought, so I sent it back, and THE NEXT DAY I got my new pedal, free of charge. Best support I have ever used.
For just about any price, this pedal would be a steal.
The Wow Factor:
Looking a it, the lettering is kind of generic, some creativity there would not hurt, but other than that, it is very desirable.
Overall, I will play this until it dies or I do, and it seems that the pedal will outlast me.
