Sound Quality
this is a nasty dirtbag, not for the weakhearted, but not because of high gain distortion. the overall character is really edgy. first of all, the pedal has huge volume to offer and works good as a boost. on some souped-up amps, one should be cautious not driving it into over-squeezin'. the pedal always sound a bit like these knifey ac-dc sounds from the late 70s without trying to be a plexi-clone. the main thing about it is that every time i plugged the rml in, i found the gain it produces not sufficient, but always continued to play on, arriving in saturation heaven a few minutes later. the pedal is tremendously dynamic and there is something delicate to it although it ain't placed on the hi-fi sode of things. the sound feels a bit compressed, but it ain't! in addition, it offers a great clean-up! i think that in front of a distorted amp already oozing with distortion, the red morning light does better with breakin' up amps.
it's a prototype and it came in a uncolored small hammond box. darius pohl offered me to work it through in case there should be technical problems. it looks well built.
General Comments
i play blues, rock, soul, funk. this pedal is something special. i think that beside the directions in hardrock and blues i mentioned, it might serve the needs of some americana players as well, maybe even some country guitarists.
