Overall Rating: I didn't have much time for this pedal before I started using it with a PSU, but now it's an integral part of my setup. Combine with dirt and phasing/chorus for a proper grinding overdriven tone with synth-like overtones. As stated above, I wish it had a more robust front panel but for the money paid for it, it's ok bang for the buck. It is completely transparent when bypassed and I'm really starting to find my own sound with this pedal in my rig. I would definitely replace it if lost or stolen.
Sound Quality: OK, I've had this for 4 years and was running it on battery power, recently changed over to a Rocktron PSU for the entire pedalboard. This pedal only does one thing but it does it so well. It never tracked 100% perfect on battery power but using the PSU is a whole different ball game. Put before your dirt pedals in the chain and really beef up one note riffs and make solos shred. Seems to track all the way up and down with no issues except on long sustains but, hey, that breakup on sustains is part of the charm. Rig:- Strat -> Chili Dog -> Boss OS2 OD/Dist -> Big Muff -> EH Small Stone -> Dano Cool Cat Chorus -> Hotwire Audio Mig*Boost -> Ampeg VT22 (no master volume)
Reliability/Durability: The 'user interface' part of it, i.e. the knobs and footswitch are a bit flimsy and you have to check the status LED every time you click it on or off as there is no 'click' to the footswitch. Not great but I use it all the time without backup. It would be nice if you could see the knob positions without having to crouch over it and also to have a more robust and tactile switch..
