Title pretty much says it all.
It is hard to get a bad sound from this pedal. The two channels on it are perfectly matched. Right side gets a great grit, almost TS808 sound. The blend for the clean/dirt signal is so useful for dialing in a huge and fat tone, and especially cool for a country sizzle or for clean leads. The left side is Plexi centric, but cleans up really well for a Hendrix style thing. JTM45 to Plexi with ease.
Feature packed - the fat/fatter/normal switches are very useful for adjusting for different volumes, and on the higher gain side it makes my 1x12 Deluxe Reverb sound closer to a 4x12 Marshall Plexi. Blend control is also great and something that I am already hooked on using. The stackable feature (both sides at the same time) is really great, but best reserved for humbuckers as it gets a little buzzy with Strat singles and Tele singles.
Ease of Use
I started with everything at 12 oclock, and it sounded good there. I just tweaked to taste. Very easy to get good sounds.
This thing seems to be built like a tank. Very high quality components and construction.
Yes, it is quite expensive. But it is like having a Sparkle Drive Mod and a Wampler Plexidrive in the same pedal. Worth it to me. I just go guitar-Wampler-amplifier and get killer tones.
Not had to use yet.
