Depends on what you need it for
DanielPicon 13.03.2022
I bought this pedal to use it as a boost on top of my main amp distortion, I try to tighten the overall sound like used by most metal guitarists. I replaced on my main board with an Ibanez TS9 because there was something about this boss pedal that I didn't like, I think it was how it altered the bass, it also introduced a lot of noise, even though I have a noise gate, it was kind of annoying. I still have this pedal but I use it as decoration and sometimes I use it with batteries on my other amp rigs.

Why did I wait so long to get an overdrive?
Kyouki_IE 23.11.2020
Overdrives are often talked about, and I must admit for a long time I was somewhat ignorant. Only in the last year or so I learned how they can be used to boost an amp, rather than for their own overdrive/distortion.

When I pair this with an old Marshal, it makes the amp sound so tight and cutting, the kind of tone I always wanted but for years struggled to get!

These are so cheap, and the impact they have, I believe now everyone should have one! An overdrive can save an amp that sounds too dull or doesn't have enough bite. Set drive to 0 and level to max, and it pushes your amp into a nice and tight, cutting saturated tone.

Highly recommend this!

This is just a classic
Ozzy Esen 25.08.2019
I?ve been using lots of boutique pedals but I have returned to basics with this pedal. Drive section sounds great especially on a cleaner / at the edge of breakup set amp, but I don?t necessarily use it for this purpose.
It works exceptionally well with darker guitars such as Les Pauls because it removes a lot of the low end before you hit the amp by setting the output gain to maximum. When this low en is removed it gives you a much clear and punchy drive signal.

Lots of boutique takes of this pedal do not cut the low end as much, and they have a much higher output level. But the amount of output gain and low end cut I find that just correct.

This is a classic and it does not need to get fixed. So if you?re in doubt I highly recommend this overdrive.

Superb
Woof Woof 13.11.2020
First class product, sounds excellent and bomb-proof housing. Great price compared to alternatives (Ts9, Behringer et al), the right at the sweet spot between those other options. You get the sound, the durability and for low price.
