"J Rockett Archer"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This pedal is built like a tank, a bit smaller than the standard form factor, both good things. Easily the best quality 80's overdrive I have played. Everything from noon to full on gain is great; the "boost" with gain at zero is a bit disappointing, as it is barely there. Expect a TC Spark or similar is probably a better choice if boost is what you crave. I am happy with the ease of use and how good it sounds for standard overdrive rock...sounds like the recorded tone of any favorite you care to name. As an added bonus, it plays well with a fuzz in front of it and or another heavier distortion/ overdrive behind it. It is a bit pricey or I would give it a 5 across the board.

"The Holy Grail of Tone"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Exactly the tone I have sought for the 27 years I've played guitar... Pure magic the way it reacts to my subtle variations in picking dynamics, its smooth and musical. I feel like I play better with this pedal, it feels right and does not fight me. Dig in and it screams soul, back off and its angelic. I play a Fender American Standard Start into a 1968 Vibrolux. I got rid of my other overdrive pedals...I found the ONE.
Musical Background:
play all genres for 27+ years.
Musical Style:
Blues, rock, classic rock.
