Your Gain Epicentre!

Pete A., 21.10.2016
Pedal arrived promptly. First impressions, unique looks, sturdy and a feel of quality of pedal, knobs & buttons, which you'd really expect for the price.

Having plugged in sounds really good straight away and even better once you start to shape your own preferences. But any sound is good from it in my opinion, however I've only ran it inline with pedals into my amp.

But its also a freestanding pre amp in its own right.

Haven't had it that long but its one of those pedals that I seem to have on constantly, on either channel or with boost. with having 2 channels with independent EQs makes it very versatile.

Haven't any negatives as yet, Best sounding gains/distortions I've tried till now.

Suits my style for options on the floor for different gains, A lot of people just roll the volume on the guitar, which is a the fantastic way, or volume pedals again great.

Best thing I can say is check out some audio reviews on web and have a listen.

For me its awesome for the sound and versatility!

Product of

stankaro, 24.01.2017
Hello,

I do not usually too much to make a comment on the different products bought on thomann
So far I have always been satisfied with my purchases and the quality of the services rendered.

I ordered this pedal which I think interesting
Following positive reviews seen on different merchant site
There were many negative points about the quality of the product,
Problem lamp, switch, power supply, etc. I did not actually pay attention, this was my first mistake, I figured that it may have happened sometimes that have it can fall on a bad series.

So once received I tested it on every point and there
1st failure, the volume of the floor2 channel has no action, while operating the potentiometer the volume does not change,
Ok, I press on the swith solo, and there, second problem, the general volume starts to scream, so two breakdown,
I decide to return the product, and I confess that I was a little hesitant to take another, but it must be said that this pedal was really the kind I have been looking for a while,
To make short, the second arrival received Wednesday
All go well well too well,
No incident until Friday of that same week
I turn on the pedal and there no longer any action on any switch, and distorted sounds button, which in no way resembled a gentle distortion and deep sonority worthy of a bluesman, inaudible brief,

Here is my experience that I met with this pedal
It must be said that I hesitated when I knew what summer of Italian manufacture, not that I want to denigrate Mr. Cicognani, but there I have a doubt about the manufacture of the product until the test pushed.

Conclusion I'm disappointed with this pedal that would have been perfect for me if I did not encounter these problems.
As for you who would make the choice of this purchase I wish you to come across a good series, because put to by its major problem it remains according to me one of the best design and sound, type marshall

For completion I wanted to thank the thomann team for the kindness and speed of its services.
