Iconic overdrive, but needs a boost in front of it to get the most out of it
cubusaddendum 26.06.2019
I get all my guitar tone from my board so I can use a clean amp, and this pedal serves well as a pre-amp stage before a power-amp/speaker simulator.

I particularly like the form factor with the sockets at the top and the battery slot underneath. The built-in "smart gate" that only cuts the hiss is a very smart move. Some of the knobs also have a sticking point to show you their "nominal" level (because it's not always at 12 o'clock). Good for fumbling in the dark.

I think the passive EQ is a bit lame though, and the boost button is so subtle I don't know why it's there. I have to use a Unit67 boost pedal in front to get the response I want.

That said, when set up the way I want it the tone is killer.

Sound like Eddy for a mild budget

If you are on a budget and want to sound like Eddy, well you can't go wrong with this item. It is very well build and has great features such as the noise gate and boost. Hook up an EVH striped series guitar and you've got yourself a great match.

This is one of the best investment I've ever made. Maybe the price seems too high, but I guarantee you won't regret buying it
