Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (54 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Tone Use with Tube amp slightly dirty."
Sound: This is a clean boost to your signal. I have had TONS of overdrives/distortions TS from the eighties, TS9, OD-1 Rat, etc. This is one of the best sounding and most responsive to playing I have tried. I use it with my strat and my Peavey valveking on the OD channel just a little dirty (4-6). With this pedal boosting the signal I can get tones from blues overdrive to early Metallica with the volume knob even santana type tones in the neck Pup. Very Musical but with a agressive bite. Really good tone and versitile. Very good with a tube amp. Preserves the tone of the guitar and the amp. I've got "my tone" with this OD and my amp. Feature: standard gain and volume. The two band EQ is a very good feature which adds tons of versalitlity. I set my Low to 1 oclock to get a little more thump out of the amp and highs to 3:00 and it pushes the amp nicely. Knobs seem to lock in place (don't know if this is designed) after set which makes keeping settings easy. Ease of Use: Very easy to get a good tone from slight overdrive to all out mayhem with a tube amp slightly driven. Quality: Seems really solid. Not quite like a rat but solid. More solid than pedals of like design. Value: Really great tone for a reasonable price. I remember when most pedals were 40-50$ This was a nice suprise. The Wow Factor: This pedal (I hope) will be a classic like the TS. I say i hope because it is a really great tone in an un-assuming package. Overall: I may try to put the turbo rat I have in front of it for more singing sustain. I am happy with it. I would instantly replace it if lost.
Style of Music: Rock, funk, alternative, metal, shred, blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "An OD box for the masses"
Sound: A nice little OD box. Allows you to add soft-to-strong drive into your mix, and maintain the character of your guitar. The drive is smooth, not blurred or "muddy". My Strat still SOUNDS like a Strat with it. Accommodates differing picking styles. Overall, the tone is great. Feature: Rotaries are basic but get the job done. Two outputs is good to have, which most boxes seem to provide these days. (Hint: experiment with BOTH output jacks to your amp .... you may like the sound going through the "mixer" jack too, which can mellow the sound.) It would be nice to have an additional contouring knob of some kind ... but i guess that'd jack-up the price, so .... forget it. Ease of Use: Nothing need be said here....typical stompbox layout. Quality: Seems well-made. Value: $40 for an OD box is good .... getting the Monkey's quality sound WITH it, puts this baby over the top. (Line6 ... you'd better go back to the drawing board and re-think your TS re-issue !) Manufacturer Support: ?? The Wow Factor: Definitely...i own it. I wanted an OD that would compliment my guitars, not re-configure them. Overall: Easy to own it at $40. Worth every penny considering that you may never want for another smooth OD device again.
