I'm a *meat and potatoes* player... but also a tone chaser. I bought this based on a few reviews from Pete Thorn & Philip McKnight. What a pedal. I wasn't happy with my 6505MH through V30's - had too much high-end *sizzle* - This pedal is truly everything everyone has said it is - I guess I had low expectations, but it has reinvigorated my ears. I'm a metal head, but also am in love with the classic VH tone, and with some tweaking, this bad boy delivers just that - BUT, running it through the green channel, with a little more tweaking, pushing it with an Ibanez Tube Screamer (gain at 0), and rolling off the volume on my guitar about halfway, I'm able to get some crisp, articulate metal tones that I've never been able to achieve before - if nothing else, this pedal has been the catalyst for helping me find a tone through the 6505 that I am FINALLY in love with. Not a lot of noise, even without a hush pedal. The "tight" knob is pretty freaking rockin', and really helps dial in a good response. Friedman has outdone themselves, seriously...and if I knew that my wife wouldn't kick me out, I'd have the BE100...But who wants to take out a second mortgage!? This pedal might as well be an amp! Buy this freaking pedal! I would replace it in a heartbeat is something happened, no questions asked!
