Sound ok, sound control -naja
Alexander077, 13.10.2015
-The pedal makes a good quality impression.
- A Fender Amp sounds through the pedal strongly to Mesa. This was the intention.
- The 5-fold EQ is very successful. It speaks sensitively and you can influence the sounds very effectively.

-The small trim control for the volume ratio between the two gain channels is a misconstruction. I have to turn the knob, completely down, and even then the second channel is still a bit louder. In addition, the trimming potentiometer, not only the volume of the second channel in comparison to the first channel, but also changed the treble. So it's like an unwanted equalizer. If you want to make the second channel louder than the first channel, turn the trim pot to the right. It gets even louder, but the sound is also brighter, with unpleasant highs.

-The gain settings are also not optimal. In the lowest setting, one has a relatively strong degree of severity, even in the first channel. The degree of distortion is similar to that of Tubescreamer in the middle gain setting. In the lowest gain setting I wish me much less gain, so almost clean only with a bit more bite. With this pedal it is not possible. Unfortunately. To the right, the degree of distortion increases non-linearly. It saturates itself to the end, so that in the middle setting until the end almost no more difference is. Overall, it can be said that the gain span is very inflexible.

In summary, the pedal is of Mesa Boogie and the Overdrive sound also sounds typical to Mesa when you use the right amp. Although the manufacturer suggests the supposedly high flexibility, the pedal is not, from my point of view.

Mesa engineering "flux five" overdrive
Jean-marieB, 16.12.2014
It is a very good overdrive it is equipped with a linear equalizer which allows to modulate the sound and give it the desired characteristics, knowing that, with two footswitches, alternating effect or bypass, the second allowing to have two Sounds, a "high" and the other "low", free to dig either of these two sounds with the equalizer, the only fault I find is the lack of documentation In French, including on the web, which may discourage the average consumer, for a product not obvious to master, but on the other hand to use is immediately seduced by the quality of the grain of this overdrive and its expressiveness: We would think for a little è in the presence of a tube preamp ...
