Great dual pedal
StaStas, 30.04.2020
I chose this pedal to save some space on the board, dual pedals always offer more features in a more compact format. Anyway, I use the Hot Wax before my OCD and my Op-Amp Big Muff. The chain is perfect. The "Hot Tubes" side, the left, offers a very slight break-up of the clean signal, also useful as a boost for the clean lead lines. The "Crayon" side, the right one, sounds like a BB Preamp/Tube Screamer kind of pedal, can be distorted but still remains transparent. Stacked together they sound like the crunch channel of a Marshall I'd say, but in a good way, nothing cheesy there. And they stack great with the OCD and the Muff, the combinations available are so many, it's so convenient.
The pedal offers a Blend option, to get some of your clean signal in there too, and probably that's a treat for the bass players. Works great for guitar too, just a tad could be enough to retain your original eq. And finally, there's a post-drives EQ section - bass & treble - that I love. Being a touring musician, lots of times I don't get the amp I asked for. And this EQ section has really saved the day for me in occasions.
An excellent choice for the pro guitar player, a pedal that - especially in low gain settings - can give you a ton of layers and stages.
The cons are the regular EHX cons, pretty much none but the really hard stomp. For some an issue, not for me though.
Excellent pedal, get one.

Perfect combination of overdrive
NJ, 07.11.2019
This sturdy box have inside an amazing world of overdrive tones for you to explore and can really endure your feet!
Super easy to understand and to set it up.
Also, the combination of this to pedals is just perfect (you can use one at the time or both combined).
It works as a boost as well!
If you want two different types of overdrive, with the possibility to combine them, you should go for it.
