I must be honest. I have not had a lot of time to put the pedal through it's paces. I have wanted one of these for a while after watching Howard put it through his settings. From what I have tried so far I can tell you that this pedal has a TON of volume. If this cannot push your amp, buy a new amp. There is also enough gain for days. So far I am happy with the purchase, but I still need to spend some more time dialing and tweaking!
