probably the best distortion pedal i've ever tried
dheim, 23.10.2019
it's smaller than it looks, it's well built and finished, it looks cool and - above all - it sounds GREAT.

the controls are very responsive and usable through their whole excursion, from overdrive to medium-high(ish) gain, all with a british vintagey flavour.

the gain control adds ...well... gain. in the form of a low-mid heavy growl (think about the classic DS-1, but better), while the voice control adds a snarling character to the sound. with some judicious use of the tone knob the marvelous engine can enter Orange territory without getting stupidly fizzy and trebly like some other pedal.

what's even more important, it feels very natural and has none of the stiffness that some pedals display, compared to amps,

the Maervelous Engine is so good that i've become dangerously curious about the "very thing" overdrive - even if i'm absolutely happy with my OD pedals...
