Great tone

14.09.2016
At first, I got interested in this product by searching for a bluesy pedal on the internet. Found a couple of reviews about this bad boy on YouTube (which I recommend checking), and quickly got sold. I had a certain feeling that this would be a good pedal for me. I wasn't wrong.

The Pros:
1. The tone, man. Very nice and warm. You can regulate the amount of overdrive, from none up to quite a nice, blues/rock sounding overdrive. The overdrive itself is not forced or unnatural; it's very smooth and warm, very pleasant to the ear. You can push the "fat" button to achieve a deeper sound with more bass to it. Quite a nice feature.
2. It's one of the small pedals and it can fit your pedalboard rather handily.
3. Looks cute as hell.
4. It's quite heavy for its petite size. Has a very cool aesthetic touch with the valve/pipe looking thing and looks overall firm.
5. Really nice packaging - looks premium and is solid. Has some case candy in it, which is super nice.

The cons:
1. Compared to BOSS type of pedals, it is rather a petite one. It's smaller and seems less solid. Might be an issue for people who are used to BOSS type of pedals.
2. Same as the pedal, the buttons are small. The activation button is well-sized, but the "FAT" button is very small and you won't be able to push it with your foot.

To sum things up: I'd recommend it to any guitarist. It's a great value for the price and it sounds just great.

Small size & big sound

Maxim K., 07.04.2014
A very nice alternative to Boss BD-2 but not a clone/copy.
Ideal for blues, blues-rock or classic rock.
