Well, I have an old Tube Screamer and I was looking for a more updated take on that unit. Many reviewers noted this pedal had a similar tone and overdrive structure to the TS and that was exactly what I wanted. It had a few more options, so I viewed that as a bonus. Anyway, it did not work well for me. I have high-end pedals and my sound and tone are pristine; and I like it that way. I removed my TS and installed the Plumes - which was a bit of a pain as the jacks on the Plumes are on the top side of the pedal. This does create a puzzle if the "next-door" pedals have the jacks on the side. Requires - ideally - patch cables with the plugs on opposite sides. But, I digress. The sound from the Plumes was very fizzy. Died out with a decaying rhythmic distortion sound. Not OK. Tried all the settings and it was no better. Moved it around on the board, but not much improvement. In addition, I found it to have a pronounced treble characteristic that was a bit too much for me. I re-installed my old TS and bingo all was good ..... I like the sound of that old pedal much better. BTW the LED is blindingly bright! So, this did not work for me and I am going to return it. Maybe it will work for you??
