Great but just not my cup of tea
peter barnes, 29.07.2020
I have no doubt it's a great pedal:
- Extremely well built
- Versatile
- Gain 2 sounds awesome

However I've returned it as I believe it's:
- a little bit overpriced for what it's giving.
- the boost is not very noticeble and it gives that little bit of stiff coloring which didn't appeal to me.
- EQ is little bit too drastic in my opinion.
- Gain 2 is great but not what I was looking for.
- Finish looks really amazing but keeping that thing clean will surely be a constant struggle.

However I 100% recommend you to try it for yourself.

Excellent booster!
Mikha II, 14.05.2019
This is excellent booster that you could use in many different ways. I use it with my Orange Rockerverb III as I mostly stay on dirty channel and it allows me to have a few different stages of gain. With Oranges, it works better than any overdrive I tried. If you put it in front of the clean amp or in the loop, it will give you less gain and more loudness. It has five responsive controls that allow me to really shape my sound and I think it can adapt to any amplifier. It does not color the sound too much.
Only negatives are minor: knob in the center (Gain 2) is tiny and is placed among much bigger knobs and it is hard to reach and set precisely. Pedal is beautiful, but very shiny and sometimes it is difficult to read the labels on it.

Changed the way I play
James Williamson, 12.05.2020
I play a lot of clean tones normally and the challenge I have always had is boosting certain frequencies that does not push to an overdriven sound.

This is the first boost pedal that I can confidently say boosts and maintains a full clean tone in a live setting. It can be easy enough to do this in a studio setting, but this pedal for me, has no equivalent in a live setting. Extremely versatile in terms of kicking on and off. The new design and look and feel also help clearly show your settings in a live situation.

I will not be changing this pedal.
