Lack of volume knob

By 

from LIMA-PER��_

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Germanium OD Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

the 60s classic sound is good. But... if you want to have this pedal inside a pedal chain (more than one pedal) it wont work, because this pedal doesn't have a volume knob and it only sounds good when you have the gain knob at 2pm at least. So if your gain is higher than 12m the normal volume of your instrument will be higher when the pedal is ON. So if you want to use this pedal you must have it ON all the time because when you turn it off you'll have a huge decrement of volume. In simpler terms "you cant control the volume" Do yourself a favor and get the $100.00 version of this pedal. it has a volume knob and it comes with a version of the BigMuff too. Greetings from LIMA-PER? PS: I don't know if it's only a problem I have in mine, but this pedal doesnt work with a regular 9v adapter and I've tried at least three different adapters.

Much more than you think

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Germanium OD Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

When I first plugged this baby into my amp I immediately fell in love with it. The description will tell you about vintage 60's sounds but this thing can do a lot more. It can give you a nice clean sound or you can use it to back up a distortion pedal (DS-1 for example) and make it sound like metal. The drained battery sound can also be paired with any distortion pedal to create a cool fuzz sound. I highly encourage anyone to give this pedal a try.

More versatile than you think

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Germanium OD Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

Don't let the 60's sound in the description fool you, you can get some really clean sounds out of this pedal. It is great to back up any distortion pedal. When you do that you can adjust the bias and voltage to produce a cool fuzz sound. Amazing must buy.
