This pedal is heaven for blues guitarists.. Both the blues and crunch tone is unbelievably great overdrive tones, and they absolutely reaches to my soul.. The pop function isn't that great.. The sound gets a bit boring after playing it for a while.. I would recommend this pedal to everyone who plays the blues, and that want's a real hard but still a great bluesy sound.. Because of the pop function it don't get a top score on features.. but it's still worth every penny.. Greetings from a norwegian blues guitarist:)

When this pedal is used alone with a power supply or a battery it sounds great. But if you attach it to power supply daisy chain it causes a horrible buzz in all the effects even when it is off. I would not recommend this pedal if you are going to add it into a effects chain, but alone it really does sound great.

Very Flexible

By Metalhead17

from Kansas City

Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Crunchtone Overdrive Pedal:

I got this on a whim cus it was on sale, and I must say I'm very impressed. It produces overdrive very close to a tube amp sound even through my 15watt Fender practice amp, and when I put it through my Line6 spider III... I would swear its a Marshall stack! It has very easy to use controls that can make it sound compleatly different with a simple switch. The built in noise gate is nice too. Only thing I dont like is its not quite heavy enough for my personal tastes.

Dece....

By Jim

from Auckland

Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Crunchtone Overdrive Pedal:

The first amp I got was the Line 6 spider II combo amp. Thats what I used to try finding my own sound (yea I know its a modeling amp). I made a custom setting where I used the crunch preset on the amp and then messed with the EQ after that. I was pleased with that one distortion sound. By the time I got a half stack(used crate ghx1600), I wanted that same sound. No other distortion pedals I tried could match the sound I was after. I stumbled upon this pedal thinking it would be the same as the "crunch" preset on the Spider II's. Well i tried it out and it was quite satifying. It sounds very similar to the Spider II preset, but i still havent fully matched the sound I'm after. Until then the pedal works. The quality of distortion is only dece, not amazing. I do like the blues aspect of the pedal. But I usually stick with pop and crunch. The gates on the pedal are pretty cool. They get the job done without sacrificing any tone. One problem I had with the pedal was a terrible buzz/ feedback sound whenever I got near the pickups. That could just be some other problem I had and may not have been the pedal. All in all... OK

WOW Great Drive

By MicSammons777

from Morehead Ky

Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Crunchtone Overdrive Pedal:

I'm totally impressed with this peddal. First of all the construction of it is unbelievable, not only that but the options on it are great. I have used other pedals before that to me the distortion sounded like a cheap radio that wasn't on a station, just pure static. But this thing has a wonderful warm sounding drive that is not to much but just right.

Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Crunchtone Overdrive Pedal:

I'am a blues musician, and I have searched for awile to find a peddal that delivers the drive that this one does. I haved tried others such as tube screamers, blues drivers,etc, but this one really delivers a good warm overdrive for me. The ground switch is also a plus.

well-built but rubbish

By rockmysocks-cl_zx

from UK

Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Crunchtone Overdrive Pedal:

This pedal has a very solid construction, and I would trust it for gigging. However, sound-wise I don't think this pedal can cut it; the blues, pop and crunch settings all deliver what you'd expect for each of them in terms of the level of distortion, but they just sound terrible: very little depth of tone, and above all, they sound incredibly digital. In my opinion the only thing the pedal does well is it's noise reduction - the noise gate is effective, but it's a distortion pedal, and it doesn't give nice distortion, so this explains the low rating I gave it. The pedal really doesn't allow the tone of the guitar to come through at all, it smothered the sound of my lovely US strat pickups... maybe it sounds better with humbuckers?? I just couldn't get round how digital it sounded, it was as though it wasn't even trying to get a warm tube sound. I didn't keep it long enough to find out, but I've been told by a friend that the battery life isn't too great either.

POWERFUL, VERSATILE OVERDRIVE

By YOyoYo-bOABT

from mempho, tn

Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Crunchtone Overdrive Pedal:

Tired of the old school buzzsaw? Turn it to crunch mode and crank up the drive up all the way played through a half-stack and you get a very powerful, modern distortion with lots of attack. Turn it to pop mode and turn up the treble and you've got a nice jazz vibe. Only downside, is like all Line 6 pedals, it can't be daisy chained without buzz or hum.

Nice Versatile OD Pedal

By Stocks-jdqWX

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Crunchtone Overdrive Pedal:

I have had some experience w/ Line 6 through their podxt but I had never heard their individual pedals. I demo'd it at a music store using the same gear I play (amdlx tele and DRRI) and was very pleased w/ the sound. The pedal has three modes...blues (fendery) , Pop (vox), and crunch (marshall). I found that these werent' gimmicks. I was particularly impressed w/ the Blues and Crunch settings. I found the pedal to be very warm and didn't lose the nuances of my playing. It seems very well built and I trust line 6 to make a solid product. I am a gigging musicians who plays a variety of styles and I honestly feel that my OD search is over.

Another pedal for the kids

By Firebird Willie

from Minneapolis Minnesota

Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Crunchtone Overdrive Pedal:

My first impression was it's built like a tank and then I plugged it into my power supply, it sucked up power like a thirsty dog, forget batteries, nobody has that much money. The sound,I found,was make believe and lifeless no matter what the settings where and the amp I plugged into or guitar I used. The truth is this was a real waste of money! I broke my one big rule about gear I bought it sight unseen. Anyone who is a true professional player would be wise to hear this thing before spending a penny on it. Sorry!
