This is a great pedal. The 3 way mode selector is awesome. It gives you Fuzz Face/Maestro/Octavia. All of which sound great. Most useful is the Fuzz Face setting for me. And with the Boost knob you can get into a pretty heavy Distortion sounding fuzz. The Octavia is also fun for adding more emotion into your solos. As usual it carries the Boss name so no worries of this thing breaking down on you in the middle of a gig.
