  1. Right now I play classic rock for the bucks (have a very sick wife and we need the money for doctors & meds). Works great for distortion OR overdrive, specially in my style I'm playing. Great sustain when I kick in the OD channel on my amp, real nice for slide too all on its own. Nice pinch harmonics, but again, you gotta have a fair guitar and a decent amp, tubes help a lot. Lost/Stolen, I'd buy it again and be glad the guy that stole it had one now too. Ain't really nothing to pick apart here, it's just a flat out great deal and great sounding pedal. I stomp, it screams, that's all I want, the added plus that it's a smokin pedal for OD sounds with great clarity is just gravy to me. Remember boys and girls, YOU DON'T NEED A THOUSAND DOLLAR TS9, 30 YEAR OLD BIG MUFF, OR A LOCK OF ELVIS'S HAIR TO SOUND GOOD! Just learn your craft and find the sound you want, and if it comes from a 10 dollar pawnshop pedal, so be it. Don't fall prey to the boutique thieves or relic peddlers (no pun intended). Live and play, folks, it's all good. Been at it 42 years and I'm still searchin...Love to ya all. PeAcE The Doctor <><

    Rockson OD-10

    I've played everything there is...blues, rock, new wave, country, psychobilly metal, spacerock (Hawkwind) but I'm playing classic rock & blues(isn't everybody?) right now, seems to be what's selling, gotta make a living, besides I like it better that the MTV years, my hair was SO BIG back then! Been playing almost 43 years, 35 for a living (yes, since I was 12, started playing teen dances, roadhouses and racetracks, and quit school, what an idiot, stay in school boys and girls). I'd buy it again in a heartbeat, and I think I'm gonna have to grab up a few more before the word gets out. Bought it for a backup, it was cheap, it was new, got pleasantly surprised! I must be an idiot for spilling the beans on this, but that's what being brothers(and sisters too, ladies) in arms is all about, kids. BTW, this sounds best with a TUBE AMP. It's not gonna sound the same with a solid state amp, so don't expect it to! This sounds like my old TS9 years ago, just needs a little more bottom, but hey, I got bass controls on my amp. This thing gets the Texas stuff I want, and makes a good booster for my OD channel too. Get one BEFORE I GET THEM ALL! Oh, and BTW, vintage pedals aren't any better than new ones...THEY'RE JUST OLDER, I'VE PLAYED THEM ALL, TRUST ME! Don't blow your bucks on 5 million dollar TS9's, Big muffs and a lock of Hendrix's hair (man he was a genuis)...just buy a new one and LEARN HOW TO USE IT! It's not the equipment that does the work, it's YOU. Peace Ya'll Doc <><
  3. I have played almost every kind of music there is for a living from country, to rock to (REAL) blues to ragtime jazz to space tripping Hawkwind (the REAL Hawkwind from the early 70s, right now gigging classic rock and blues, the old retro cliché, but it pays the bills) and I have 2 pedals I HAVE TO HAVE chorus and heavy distortion. With my hands, volume and tone controls and the clean and OD channel on my amp, I do everything else, learn to do it, its a nice amount of freedom from the Boutique Thieves wholl steal your hard earned $ for a name. You dont have to have the best pedals to sound good, and its ALSO ok to buy a bunch of stuff, whatever works for you, just make sure its FOR YOU. Started play at 4-1/2 years old, I'm almost 47, spent 17 on the road, now I'm an old fat retired short haired hippy weekend warrior (someday you will be too), 5 8 gigs a month, do the math. Pedal works great, I use bass choruses most of the time (when one breaks down I fix it or move on and buy a replacement), makes a fatter sound, that's just "my sound" isn't that what everybody's looking for? I haven't been a wannabe for at least 30 years....Yeah; I'd buy it again in a heartbeat...Dano Cool Cat comes close, but no even tempered Leslie sound like the Ibanez. Get one if you can find it cheap, it's a good deal. Get one if it costs you a few bucks, it's worth the try out, never can tell.....hope this review actually helps somebodyI didnt come here to blow about all my pedals, guitars, and who my heroes are, just happened to really think this was a good find. Buy cheap and go long till you find something that work, guysand just be a musician, not a another guitar player. REMEMBER: BUY CHEAP AND GO LONG! Never can tell what might turn out to be YOUR Holy Grail, kids. One more thingDONT BE A PEDAL WHORE! If you got something for sale, be fair. Some day it will come back to you in a good way and youll get that pedal youve been dying for, for a song. And always remember what the butler said to Eddie Murphy in Trading Places: Just be yourself, no matter what happens, they cant take THAT away from you.. Email me if you got questions, glad to help, just dont be silly about it. Peace & Blessings Doc <><
