If you like extreme Metal/Djent you will love this

At first i was a little underwhelmed, that was until i stopped messing around with my head phone amp and played this through a cranked half stack (Jet City 50h thru 4x12 marshall compact cab)...wow!!!!

at the hi gain end this pedal combines the thickness and brutality of a 5150 style distortion with a fat thick vintage fuzz element, i have been looking for this sound actually for about 20 years, i have bought at least 4/5 pedals in the past hoping to achieve this sound, none have come close, this though has smashed it.
Im not gonna bother talking about low gain, if you are buying this for low gain???? it does it..but its like buying a ferrari for a rally race, or a JCB to dig out a flower bed, there are other things out there that are much better for low gain, but i have found nothing on par , pedal wise for high gain

I have a JCM 800, a 5150 block letter head, and a Jet City JCA 50, so thats some serious gain tones to compete with, and it matches all 3 amps, in terms of quality of tone, but is different to all 3 so gives me a genuine whole other texture/sound to use, and this will get used ....a lot

EQ: this takes some adjustment, i recommend tweaking your clean/semi driven sound on the amp eq to benefit your clean/semi driven tones, then use the pedal eq to hone in the "brutal" full on tones of this pedal. If you dont spend time with the eq it will sound a mess, but the effort is well worth it, after 5mins fiddling i have now found an epic extreme metal sound and i use a telecaster with single coils, and it sound earth crushing through this thing

Im Currently running my crunch/clean channel with a small amount of break up (gain at 11 o'clock), maxed treble and bass with mids to about 3 o'clock on the amp, the pedal at max gain and depth, bass at max with para at 9 o'clock, mid at 2 o'clock, para at 3 o'clock, treb at 10 o'clock para at 3 o'clock, and i get a full rich thick distortion/fuzz that sounds very brutal yet vintage at the same time , has enough definition that is not mushy but still fat and big, love it)

warning, un "tweaked" this pedal is quite trebly, i imagine many will be cutting rather than adding treb

Sound: very gravelly, brutal perfect blend of hi gain dist/overdrive and fuzz
Stacks well, i have used an EHX OD glove (ocd clone) to give a dirty boost before and after pedal, and a TC electronic Mojomojo, in both set ups, both sound great.

Quality: very well built cant fault the quality

Thomann: Service was amazing ordered on thursday afternoon received monday morn (uk), tracked at all points, thanks Thomann, thats the second order i have made, great service both times, you have earned more of my custom

Note: just a little warning past 3 oclock, gain gets noisy, i dont mind that, but some may need a noise gate with this, or with humbuckers you would not need gain past 7-9 oclock anyway (i have a Dean Vendetta as well and it also sounded great through it)

Best drive pedal i have owned, ever (here are some i have owned recently and in the past, Boss Hyper Fuzz, Super overdrive, DOD grunge, EHX Metal muff, Big muff Pi 2 (original), od glove, TC elec Mojomojo/dark matter this beats all of them)

Good pedal but it's very hard to set it right

vladg, 28.07.2017
First, it?s not high-gain distortion pedal. DISTORTION control adds reasonable amount of distortion only when set higher than 80%. 3 band parametric EQ is pre-distortion so you actually have 3 gain knobs to boost specific frequencies. The pedal sounds extremely well on low gain settings when connected into clean amp. You have dark bluesy sound. The pedal works well paired with compressing high-gain amplifier, the pedal adds a lot of clarity and does not add even slight amount of compression. Clarity, clarity, clarity that is the sound you have. However, you can spend a lot of time trying to tweak 3 band full parametric EQ to nail the sound. I was not able to achieve any good high-gain results with this pedal only when connected to clean amp. In addition, the pedal loves high output humbuckers. With single coil pickups, booster pedal is recommended (EP booster worked great).
Finally, I found the place for this pedal as very good foundational overdrive. I set it at the end of my chain with DISTORTION at 0, connected to high headroom clean amp. This allows having nice breakup and versatile EQ. Volume control range is so high so I even can connect the pedal to power amplifier input, thus using this pedal as some kind of preamp. Now I?m happy with the sound.
