This pedal can make any amp and any distortion pedal sounds better. The sound is transparent and glass like

vladg, 28.09.2017
The first time I tried to use this pedal, I was a bit disappointed because it did not sound like a distortion at all! There was too little gain even on max gain settings! However, several months later I think it is my favorite pedal right now because it is able to make any amp and any distortion pedal sounds better.
Therefore, the pedal is kind of tone shaping light overdrive. It has tone control knob (similar to guitar one), which helps to shape a tone into too bright amp or too sizzle distortion pedal. Next, it has gain control and a switch for two gain ranges. Max gain on low range is roughly matched to the lowest gain on high range position.
There is also low frequency control knob. Reduce it if your amp/distortion pedal is too boomy. And high-mid frequency control. When it?s maxed and tone control in its minimum position, the pedals reminds tube screamer?s mid hump. Output level knob range is perfect for all situations.
The pedal is designed to be the first in the chain. When fed with buffered output, the sound becomes too bright (that can be defeated with tone control) but there?s internal DIP switch to adjust input impedance and compensate this for buffered input case.
The sound is transparent and glass like, so the pedal named just right!

Great Low Gain Drive

17.06.2016
Great pedal:
Sounds wise is brilliant at low gain.
On the high gain mode its not earth crushing but plenty gain for rock and blues

I use this for 2 applications
I glassy clean tone on low gain with mild break up, and 2 to drive my amps lead channel a bit harder

The looks on this pedal are awesome the nicest looking pedal i have ever seen let alone owned

Build quality is high as well, i have the boneshaker in this range too and both pedals are great quality and superb at what they do

I have marked feature down a little because the gain is limited but really its not meant to be high gain and its very versatile from clean to rock sounds

Great pedal, love it, so versatile, the only mid gain pedal i have played on the same level is the Walrus Mayflower, but the LookingGlass is cheaper has an exceptional eq and gain voicings the can prize any sound other than hi gain metal, the DOD sounds so valvey, and whilst the Mayflower is a stunning drive sound, its far more limited, the DOD has close 4times the available tones and matches quality across the board . I can say with confidence it wont dissappoint, the best OD overall in pedal form and Metal heads , it wont be your core hi gain tone but its much better than any TS/808 pedal for boosting drive chanel , eq gives somuch ability for boosting, TS fot boost ? yawn no chance keep that green insult away from my board I have something much better thanks
