This is just a classic
Ozzy Esen, 25.08.2019
I?ve been using lots of boutique pedals but I have returned to basics with this pedal. Drive section sounds great especially on a cleaner / at the edge of breakup set amp, but I don?t necessarily use it for this purpose.
It works exceptionally well with darker guitars such as Les Pauls because it removes a lot of the low end before you hit the amp by setting the output gain to maximum. When this low en is removed it gives you a much clear and punchy drive signal.

Lots of boutique takes of this pedal do not cut the low end as much, and they have a much higher output level. But the amount of output gain and low end cut I find that just correct.

This is a classic and it does not need to get fixed. So if you?re in doubt I highly recommend this overdrive.

Cheap but effective distortion
nurk, 04.03.2020
This pedal is quite cheap. That being considered, the construction quality seems to be quite high, with most of the components made out of metal and not plastic.
It provides a pretty decent bang for the buck and I would reccomend it to anyone looking for a decent Overdrive without going broke.

Versatile and good rocksolid pedal.
João Nunes, 27.11.2017
Use:
- I use this pedal as a booster and for light/medium distortion. Works excellent with a Fender Stratocaster and less excellent with a Les Paul (Epiphone Custom Pro).
Pros:
- "Bulletproof" very robust.
- Great value for the money.
- Works very good as a Booster, with the Drive knoob set to 0, (very happy with this feature).
- Good light/medium tube distortion (a mixture of AC/DC, Eric Clapton, Hendrix and David Gilmour kind of sound).
- Loud.
- Simple.
- Trustworthy.
- Beautiful.
- They say he needs batteries or 9V power suply but I have been jammin' for 2 days with him only connected to the amp so I assume that has batteries included (on the inside, not checked wet).
Cons:
- The sound is good but not excellent. However, I have been using him in an 8'' speaker and maybe thats why...

Overall very good pedal, sounds better with a Stratocaster in comparison with a Les Paul, but thats totaly subjective. 100% recommend this pedal. Good job Boss!
