This pedal is awesome. Its nice and saturated, yet clear as an overdrive should be. Perhaps the best feature with this pedal is the fact that its really responsive with the controls of the guitar. When I roll the volume back on my Les Paul, it cleans up just like a naturally overdriven amp does; there's no need to even turn it off during a set. Definitely a Hiwatt in a box. Catalinbread nailed this pedal and created a winner.
