Great pedal overdrive

bernardo231, 16.08.2016
Definitely the best overdrive I've ever had. Its biggest defect is the high price but it is worth spending a little more for this pedal, especially if, as is my case because of the style of music I play, you will use it a lot. It puts absolutely no noise and gives a variety of sounds of incredible quality.
A long time ago I acquired the Boss DS-1X and together with this makes a perfect pair, even since I have both the distortion pedal puts less noise (I used to have it with a Boss OS-2).
In short I am more than satisfied with the purchase and above all very happy with the remarkable improvement that this pedal brought to my sound (along with his brother DS-1X) so I recommend it to everyone without hesitation.

Flexible and good ...

Der Klaus, 13.08.2018
In the search for a low / medium gain overdrive for a Fender (or similar) amp you always have the problem that the highs are often too much and when you run down the upper mids will disappear as well. Besides, apparently, unlike most other guitarists, I also need the bass sounds in the Zerrsound. Thus, most of the TS-like synonymous raus out.

So there is not so much choice left. In the shop, kindly got hooked up by a very dedicated staff then a number of zerrers between 100 Eu and 250 Eu and tried. What can I say? This is by far the most flexible. From little overdrive to fat distortion. Responds very well to the attack, compresses little, but just right. Everything is very "amp-like". The tone controls actually do something and that in the just right frequency range. Maybe the part has one or the other too little own "character", but there you have to decide. With this guitar and amp remain completely and the peculiarities of the playing technique (and also the shortcomings) come through completely.

Now the funny part ... I have a lot of experience with modellers (away from the POD 1 ...) and just Zerrsounds I find there so far not so great and I refer to latencies I really cough fleas. At home then the surprise all the bigger: The thing is completely digital! And when comparing directly with analog boutique pedals, only with cable directly into the amp, I did not notice any difference ... Hm ... First, boss did what was right, secondly, on occasion, sort out prejudices ....

All well, especially with the price and the Boss-typical processing. Of course, "True Bypass" is not synonymous and that's good (but another topic ...)
