Really, really like this one, can go velcro when needed, reacts differently when pushed, easy to influence with volume knob on guitar. It acts nicely with my Quilter 202, in front and in send/return loop, especially there I can use gain and limiter knobs of the amp to influence the rip and stutter, combined with way I hit the strings. This thing will give you screeching highs and grumbling lows ones you get a feel for the settings. I've encountered the hiss I've seen reported by others at certain settings only when it was in front of the amp, but have not yet tested it with other drive pedals in the chain. I tested it with my tele with texas style single coil pick-ups and my j mascis squire jazzmaster (with hotter pickups than the standard Jazzmaster) and both gave great tones. The single notes are distinct and not swamped or muddy, even at higher distorted levels. If you are not looking for a specific tone, but are willing to invest some time to discover what tones are in here to inspire, for this price I feel it's worth it. Only been playing for a few hours straight after I got it this afternoon, but this feels like the best one I bought in a while..
