Great pedal!!


Solid pedal for anyone who does not want to spend too much on a head! I run this pedal through my Orange PPC412 and Orange Crush Pro 120 Head. It sounds amazing. You NEED a noise gate pedal if performing live though!



Versatile Monster!


Very versatile and powerful distortion/OD pedal that allows you to dial in a HUGE range of dirty sounds from Blues to Metal...excellent purchase



such a good OD


This pedal will get the job done. Whether it's low wattage or high wattage. There is no need to get the gain level past 11 oclock on this pedal. It has gain for DAAAAAAAYYSSS. Its a great way to get to that compressed higher gain sound on a light gain channel. This pedal will give you the British gain/compressed sound you've been after without necessarily having to go buy the high gain amp. If your amp struggles to get you the gain; buy this. If your amp flubs out in the bottom end....just buy this and tighten it up.,.. buy this and be happy with your tone.



Great pedal. But think of it more like a preamp!


great sounding pedal! I have been buying Overdrives like mad lately. This thing is a beast. Easily able to go full tilt metal with the gain about 30%. Remember to open the rear cover to taylor the gain to you amp rig. I left mine at 12 o'clock and with the gain all the way down it still has too much drive IMO for blues. But I don't use this for blues( I have a Love pedal Kalamazoo for that) but heavy rock to extreme metal its got you covered. I really like this pedal or I wouldn't write this review. Oh, and I've used this on tube combos and even an old Roland micro cube. You can get the brown eye sound on any amp!!
