I love it!

Lars5995, 30.01.2014
I use Fender Strat & tele into a Bassman 1977 and a 2x12" speaker with Celestion Vintage 30's.
The Alberta II is perfect for me. It adds a good sounding dirt with excellent transparency. The left "channel" has more overdrive and a bit more bite to it. Works perfect as the distortion channel. The right "channel" is the original Alberta. Not so much drive, some mid boost and a transparent sound where the guitar and the amp sets the sound, the pedal just add the dirt (and a bit mid).
A new feature is the fat switch on both channels, which I really like and has started to use all the time.
This is the only OD pedal I need! I use it all the time, and for solo boost I use a Boss EQ with some volume and mid boost, and a slight bass cut.

A sturdy pedal with a beastly tone

Javier465, 23.10.2014
When you take it out of the box, you will appreciate its robustness, very solid housing and very safe touch of the switches. And its size, it is grateful that, being two pedals, occupy so little space on the pedalboard. Once plugged in, you discover that you have two overdrives that complement each other perfectly, but that each has its own character. One very soft and open and another with much gain and more compressed. The normal / fat mini switches are a wonderful plus of this pedal, in position fat, fatten and add mordiente to the sound, a delight. You can use it both for a softer tone, for rhythms and another lead or as two types of overdrive well different, because, as I said, in fact, are two pedals, not one.
I put two hits, which I think it is important to highlight, although I do not think they take interest in the pedal. First of all, the potentiometers are very sensitive, so you have to fine tune when setting the levels, because with a minimum movement, the change that is produced is important and, on the other hand, have unified the status light in pitch potentiometers, seems to me an error, because these are very small and difficult to handle.
Overall a great pedal, which offers a lot for the price it has. Highly recommend. Nothing more to fall into my hands, it installed as my main pedal and I think it will take some time to get someone to move it.
