I really love this pedal. It's my favorite at the moment. Daft as it sounds, I play mainly acoustic Irish tune sets, and for the odd solo I turn this on. It lives on my pedal board next to the Boss E.Q. pedal, and my wireless (AKG) receiver. If like me you use an Acoustic guitar then watch the input level or you may get feedback. That's a bit of a faf, but to see peoples faces when I turn it on and distort the sound is worth the setting up. I've stopped using my bad monkey altogether now, (and the zoom G1, which had too many effects on it to use and adjust on stage) and took it off the pedal board. Keep it simple, and this does it well.
Rugged-built, with a metal enclosure, Alpha pots, a well- enginereed PCB (No SMD here!), the Crunch Distortion is a real bang-for-the-bucks! Basically a Marshall in a box pedal, it features lots of Volume, a easy to use tone knob, which can be used to cut some of the mid-highs the pedal roars (as Marshalls do) and plenty of Gain, which covers the range from AC/DC to Van Halen. Sound is very powerful and rich, power chords sound compact and heavy and solos have that Marshall sparkle on top. It is hard to obtain those slighty break up sounds you would expect from a JCM45 or a Plexi; this pedal is more JCM800-oriented. It also features a real true bypass (3PDT switch). I highly recommend it; it's a great sounding stompbox for the cost of a pizza and a couple of beers!
