A solid 4/5
Alexi89 31.08.2020
I have had this pedal for a year now. It is a very versatile pedal, but I tend to keep it on one setting and leave it rather than switch between them.
There are 3 voicings each with two settings (Mosfet vs Standard) so chances are there is a tone in here for you!

There are two cons with this pedal:
1. It can be a bit dark so you might need the tone knob quite high.
2. the boost isn't particularly useful on most of the settings. It doesn't add a huge amount of difference if you already have the gain at around noon.

However, I do love the tone of this boosting a slightly overdriven amp (Orange Terror Stamp). Great for classic rock tones.

Bang for the buck

I am happy with it and would recommend.

At first, I tried to use this thing as a low gain tube screamer replacement, but in that use case, it did not feel to be the best. But crank up the gain and holy lobster, that thing is killer. I use it at work with my "let some steam out" rig: hellokitty strat, this and harley benton GA-5 amp. In this combination, it is wonderful. I can get quite Tool like sounds with it. The distortion feels organic, able to go wild when dug in and yet, cleans up well if played softly.

Negative aspect: The footswitch layout is dumb and cramped. I keep hitting the volume knob with my feet. The switches should be laid out other way around.

Great overdrive pedal for blues and rock
LUN4 20.09.2019
The pots and switch feel a bit cheaper than for example those on some other pedals. Another con is that the boost can't be used separately (but this is also true for the FD2 it's based on). It sounds almost identical to my FD2 (you need to put all controls a bit higher on the Maximum), and that's a good thing since that's a great pedal. It's very usable for blues or rock. Oh and the looks have to be your thing, but I dig the design and lighting on the front and a lot. You can also disable this light when the pedal is turned off or completely disable it if you don't like the leds.

Pas mal

Pour jouer du rock et du blues avec une Gibson SG.

On commence par les points négatifs. Le switch de droite ne sert à rien. Celui de gauche fait perdre pas mal de volume en position centrale et à droite. A gauche, c'est très bien, mais on peut dire que ce switch est assez inutile également.
Le potard Tone n'est absolument pas progressif. Tout à gauche, c'est un peu plus sourd et tout à droite, c'est un peu plus brillant... Bof.
Le boost ne booste que si le drive est enclenché, ce qui n'est parfois pas le cas. L'inverse serait un plus.

Pour le reste, avec ma SG, le grain est très joli à condition de pousser un peu le réglage. Difficile de trouver un crunch sympa. Mais avec le gain à fond ou presque on a un overdrive assez, qui peut sonner un peu rétro.
Le boost ajoute du volume, (un peu) mais surtout de la compression et pas mal de hargne. Le son devient franchement tranchant, une merveille. Il transforme une disto assez classique mais efficace en bonne tronçonneuse.
En résumé, beaucoup de réglages dont peu sont vraiment intéressants. Pour ce que je lui demandais, cependant, elle a bien fait le boulot.
