This pedal will get the job done on your low wattage amplifier. If you're playing a 15w to 20w amp this is the drive you need to get. There is enough gain in this box to get that amp into it's natural compression. This is the tone you're looking for. It's easy to use, too. Four knobs control the whole thing. The EQ is incredibly easy to manipulate simply with a bass and tone control. I can't say enough about this pedal....... Did I mention the silhouette of Gandalf on the front? Yeah, there's that, too.
