It's hard to call a volume pedal amazing, but this is pretty darn close. When you activate it, your volume increase! What else do you want? The reason I give it five stars is the build quality, you could knock a Rhino out with how hefty this pedal is. Great, especially for someone like myself who leaves the volume all the way up on my guitar no matter what. *Hands on review by Christopher M. from store 57 in Indianapolis.
