Great pedal. But think of it more like a preamp!

Best Uses

  • Metal
  • Rock

great sounding pedal! I have been buying Overdrives like mad lately. This thing is a beast. Easily able to go full tilt metal with the gain about 30%. Remember to open the rear cover to taylor the gain to you amp rig. I left mine at 12 o'clock and with the gain all the way down it still has too much drive IMO for blues. But I don't use this for blues( I have a Love pedal Kalamazoo for that) but heavy rock to extreme metal its got you covered. I really like this pedal or I wouldn't write this review.

Oh, and I've used this on tube combos and even an old Roland micro cube. You can get the brown eye sound on any amp!!
