For a £20-something pedal, it's pretty damn impressive

I didn't plan on buying this pedal, truthfully, I was hoping to one day get some kind of overdrive pedal (maybe a Maxon OD808) as a booster for my amp to record hard rock/metal guitar tracks for my own music.

I was shopping for some stuff on thomann and I came across this pedal, looked like a clone of the Maxon OD808 (sounded pretty close to one too), it was nice & cheap, and after looking at some reviews and demos of this pedal on YouTube and so on, I liked what I heard, and decided to throw it into the shopping cart. It seemed like an absolute steal considering how it sounded and how much it costs, and even if it didn't sound all that great, it wouldn't have been much of a loss.

After unboxing it and sticking in a 9v battery I tested this thing out on my valve amp, on a high gain setting of course
m
and I must say, I was really impressed with the sound of this pedal, it gave my amp a more tight and articulated sound, much better than how my amp sounds with no overdrive pedal to assist the tone. It does give a good 'tube-like' sound to your amp whether you're using it on a clean or a distorted setting, and you can use it for a light crunch or a full on overdrive.

In terms of build quality it feels pretty solid, all contained in a little green metal box, the knobs feel nice and sturdy, don't feel like they're gonna just fall off or anything. Could probably take a good stomping before it starts wearing down. I don't know how it'll fair in a live scenario, I've only been using this pedal for recording purposes, if you do takes this pedal out to gigs, do so at your own risk.

It's easy to work the controls on this pedal too, nothing complicated about it at all. Pretty much has the controls you'd expect from your average overdrive pedal. Similar to the OD808 it has a drive, tone and volume function, doesn't take a genius to figure out what those do.

Now, there are other pedals that are 'technically' better than this one, and may be more favourable than this one, but that does not mean it's no good, this pedal does hold it's ground against it's more expensive competitors. And for the price you absolutely cannot go wrong with this, for a £/?20-something pedal, it's pretty damn impressive.

If you have a little money to spend on a cheap but great sounding overdrive pedal, take a serious look into one of these.

I use this to get a tad more gain out of my Bugera V5 as well as to get some additional treble out of the amp and it works great for that. The Bugera V5 has a reputation of sounding like someone dropped a wet blanket over it and this pedal mostly fixes that (not perfectly but close to it) with the tone knob.

The overdrive sounds amazing. I get old school rock/blues tones out of it when I run the V5 clean and the drive knob on the pedal on about half or more. If I crank the gain on the V5 as well as on the pedal it gets into old school metal territory which is exactly the span of gain tones I was looking for.

I have my doubts about the build quality since the price is so low, but it feels well built on the outside at least and it it working fine so far. No glitches at all.

Very basic guitar player blown away by the reviews of this pedal so I took the plunge. Stunning piece of kit and I cant believe the price . Will buy more in this range and cant recommend both this range and company enough . Germany to Ireland inside three days - total customer service sadly lacking elsewhere ! Gives my amp so much punch its unreal !!

Bought it for my friend. He is a jazz/blues guitarist. This overdrive sounds like an expensive pedal, for the price it is excellent deal. The only thing is that the plastic battery cover is made out of cheap plastic, but who really cares about it. It is facing the floor anyway! Good deal! Thanks to Hennig from yt channel for presentation, it helped me a lot to make a decision of buying it.

The overdrive pedal that does everything it should

Hello,

I've bought this overdrive pedal, because i didn't see the point in spending more than 100 pound in another well known vintage distortion pedal that doesnt even have a true bypass. I compared one of these "boutique" pedals with the Harley Benton Vintage Overdrive and i've come to the conclusion that the Harley Benton does everything you could possibly want. everything is really high quality and will last for a long time. the sound difference to the more expensive pedal is barely noticable at all. The pedal does a great job in boosting tube amps and sounds very natural.
If you plan on buying a expensive pedal then first try out one of these and then make your decision.
