Sound Quality

Sweet, singing sustain.


Had it for almost 3 years with no issue.


I think I paid $200 new.

General Comments

More singing sustain than

fuzzy distortion. Truly beautiful sound. The bass knob is missing on many

overdrives, but is essential because as the gain is increased, so is the bass.

With the bass knob, you can roll it off when the pedal is engaged. I always thought

that great tube amp distortion had more to do with saturating the output

transformer than overdriving the tubes and this pedal confirms that. Of course,

it does it by saturating the Neve transformer. At lower gain settings it's

great for R&B and blues. With the gain all the way up, any Led Zep song

sounds fantastic. I use it in enhanced mode all the time, which produces more

harmonics. Not great for ultra metal - there's not enough gain and it's too

sweet of a sound. Best overdrive I've ever heard - and I've heard a lot.
