"There's some kind of "secret sauce" in this thing!"

I'm not a pedal guy. All I wanted was a stand-alone noiseless clean boost of about 6db for solos while playing rock/pop through a clean single-channel SS jazz amp. This gives me that ... and more! There's some kind of "secret sauce" in this thing - I guess it's the tubey EchoPlex pre-amp emulation - that makes my semi-hollow with medium-output humbuckers come alive. It sounds not only louder but also richer, punchier, and somehow more 3-dimensional. It's also dead quiet whether on or off. I'm setting mine on about 11 O'Clock as a solo boost, but I can see why some people want to always leave it on set at unity gain; I bet it would subtly juice up a Tele or a Strat really nicely. Notes: I have the DIP switches set at 1=Off, 2=On; I'm using a Dunlop 18v AC adapter to get the best performance out of this little gem.
