  • Great pedal

    As reviewed by Kelton Clinner on 2/21/2009

    For the reviewers who said this padal sounded cheap or to bright you probably just don't have the settings on your clean channel set right. Once you get your amps clean channel equalized and sounding good is when this pedal realy shines! This padal is not for metal of course, but it can really produce some rich thick sounding tones. Its perfect for anything from low clean boost to hard crunch rock. It esecialy shines on simple power chord rifts. So if you want a pedal that you can use to play anything other than metal this is a must. You'd be suprised how many famouse guitarist use this. Its not always about having the most expensive stuff!

  • Awesome lead-boost pedal!

    As reviewed by BigHeaf on 8/23/2006

    Unfortunately mine died recently (found its way into some water when it was being moved), and hopefully I'll be able to pick up another one soon. But before it met its end, it was a great pedal. I was always skeptical of it til I tried it, and while as a standalone distortion it was a little flat, if used as a lead-boost in front of a slightly 'dirty' amp it can really make your rig come alive. I used it with SG's through Marshalls, and it always gave me what I wanted. Keep the gain & tone at around 10/11 o'clock & crank the level to the max & voila! Instant solo-booster! I will certainly replace mine at the nearest opportunity, and suggest you try one out as well!

  • I'd recommend this pedal for all rock bands

    As reviewed by Daniel Butler on 6/20/2012

    This pedal is used by John Frusciante,Kurt Cobain,and Billie Joe Armstrong.It's best for rock but can be use for metal also.I use it for grunge and punk rock.If you don't know how to set it to grunge just put the level and distortion on max and the tone to 11 o'clock.
