"There's a reason this thing's been around since the 70's. You can't mess with perfection."
It's not perfect, but what pedal is? The size of the pedal is a little annoying, but the tone you get out of it is phenomenal. Use a boost pedal or light overdrive before the pedal, instant sustainable feedback. It's a wonderful pedal to have in your arsenal.
An immensely transparent and useful effect. After having the black, Russian made model for a while, using this was like night and day. The black model is more overdrive-y, where this is a wall of fuzz. If you use this in conjunction with a nice, gritty amp, you'll have an instant tone you'll fall in love with.
Volume, Tone, Sustain (fuzz). That's it. What more do you need? The tone works as a mid boost. It's an extremely flexible tonal range.
Ease of Use
It's a pedal. You put it on the ground, you kick it. End of story.
This is where it'll lose a point. I'm not saying it's not durable, because it is, but it's a thin aluminum box, not a metal casing like a Boss pedal. It'll take a licking and keep ticking, but it wont survive the apocalypse, unlike a Boss pedal.
You can use this pedal for just about anything. Obviously it's a guitar effect, but it sounds great on bass, keyboards, anything you want. I know a few live sound engineers that'll use a real light setting through drum aux channels to give a little beef to a drumkit.
Great support. Email them, you'll get an answer very fast.
The Wow Factor
I wanted it the second I played it. It's a phenomenal effect.
