Love, love, love this pedal!!!
RickC, 13.01.2021
I saw Dave Simpson demo this pedal on his youtube channel and I had to have it! I'm running an Epiphone Les Paul into a Marshall MG30GFX, with this pedal I get so much closer to the Peter Green tone I've been looking for. I own a Mad Professor Forest Green compressor pedal to get Gary Moore-esque sustain and it was my favourite pedal. I've only spent a few hours playing with this Super Black but it's already my new favourite pedal. Love Mad Professor (and Dave Simpson)!

Pros: the tone is awesome, the pedal is sturdy, the included overdrive sounds amazing.

Cons: other than the price, I have not noticed anything with the pedal itself. Information online is misleading, that a 8-16 V DC power supply unit is necessary and available separately. Relax, it does come with a 9V battery installed, you just need a screwdriver to remove the back of the pedal - not really a "con" for me but it might irritate others. I assume the 8-16V DC power supply is only necessary to access greater headroom? It has large feet, which might affect mounting on your pedalboard.

Great tone and high versatility
Jesus215, 05.02.2020
This is one of the most best-sounding effects I've ever use. It contains basically a preamp and an overdrive (Sweet Honey Overdrive). It is very transparent, both channels. The preamp intends to emulate the sound of the Fender black face amp; it sounds incredible, very dynamic response to your playing. The overdrive can be use separately or with the preamp; in both situations it sounds pretty well. In addition, the pedal responds very well to other pedals, like reverb, delay, compressors, or even another overdrive. I'm very satisfied so far with it, although I've had a few weeks to use and check it.

On the other hand, the construction, reliability and aspect are very good as is usual in mad professor pedals. The prize is also very competitive considering you have two pedals in one box (and one of them is just the sweet honey overdrive).

Bin begeistert
Apaclass, 13.02.2020
Es war eine sehr lange Suche nach einem schönen leicht angecrunchten Clean-Sound! Die Kollegen vom Mad Professor haben mir diesen Traum erfüllt. Ich nutze eigentlich nur die linke Seite des Pedals (always on) - vor meinem kleinen 5W Blackstar Amp. Mit dem EQ kann man sehr schön den Klang anpassen. Super Pedal.

Fantastic!

There are days when you just want that chrystal clear Fender sound. Try connecting this into amps effect loop return as your preamp of into your audio interface/mixing console input with proper gain setting.
