VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: This thing can do a wide variety of sounds. Even with the gain all the way down you can get smooth distorted lead sounds. I am using it with a Mesa Boogie express 550 212 to give me extreme metal tones and i am very happy with the sound of this pedal! Feature: I love the features! My only complaint is they put the noise gate switch on the inside of the unit! It is the smallest switch to turn. I didnt have a flathead screwdriver that was small enough to rotate the noisegate so it wouldnt cut off the notes quite so quickly. It irritated me, just put an extra nob on the front! The only time i do need the noise gate was if i have the gain past 75% of max! Even then the hiss is pretty small. You could go without it if you are shredding alot. I got a yngwie pedal with 25% the amount of gain this beast puts out and that thing if i go past half way it starts to make the waterfall sounds! Ease of Use: The settings in the manual surprisingly sounded pretty good. Doesn't take long to dial your sound. Quality: Seems really sturdy! Value: Great value. Even having to dial the noise gate back a bit. Great pedal and sounds better than any other high gain pedals i have heard lately. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with them. The Wow Factor: I like the looks and the led colors! Overall: I would replace if stolen.

Overall: I wanted a high gain pedal and i got one. Lots of of settings to play with. i do want to adjust the noise gate but am a little nervous about digging around the imside.the highs seem a little ...high for my tastes but with the scoop on it gets a nice type o negitive sound wich i like and lotsa lotsa distortion sounds great out of my fender stack at lower volumes i live in an apt so i havent been able to see how it soumds at high volumes...but i like it and at $100 it was right in my budget or lack there of
