i bought this because i felt it would be a good collector's item, and it is. just don't play it during a concert. i play punk and ska-core. this wouldn't be good for it, unless you have a preamp in front, but even then this pedal is hard to switch on. as you can see, technology changed and they did a good job updating their pedals. now they have the big plastic switches that say "dod" on them. i wish they were metal, but thats no big deal, just don't drop it on the switch, that's all. but like i said, don't perform with this, even though it says "performer" on it, it's not. oh yeah, and i don't think this will get stolen cuz it's not leaving my house, unless i brought it somewhere just to show it off.
