I'm a bedroom player and cant really justify paying a fortune for effects pedals.
I play a fender roadhouse strat and wanted a pedal that would give me a boost for solos, that dirtied up the sound at an acceptable volume and this little gem does just that through a 30watt Line6 practice amp.
Its a super pedal that has far outstripped my expectations, the low and high controls give you endless opportunities to vary your tone, have a play it can do loads of things, but please remember this is not a distortion pedal, its not what its does. But if like me you love a bit of hendrix or SRV super thing to own on a budget.
Listen to SRV's Life without you - first solo or Texas Flood when he first kicks in with those sweet bends - I can get that sound and thats what I wanted,.
