Worth it…here's why
I needed some more versatility in my rig. I play in a cover band with friends and use a basic rig with a strat, a Delta Blues amp and a few pedals, nothing exotic. We just play whatever we decide is fun, mainly classic rock type stuff. I wanted something to handle some Petty/U2/REM type tones that sit in a mix better with my other guitar player.
This is a pricey pedal for me. Getting over $200 was hard to swallow but I don't regret it. This is very much like having another amp in the rig.
I should say up front that I know Vox sounds in a general way but not in the tone-snob kind of way. I'll also say that it took an evening of dialing in and playing with my friends before I really appreciated it, so if you get one, give it a bit of time and you'll love it. People mostly talk about Brian May when they mention this pedal but to me there's far more than that here. I have found some golden Tom Petty and Rory sounds with this thing and there are some cleans that really stand out in a mix. This pedal loves low output strat pickups. Between the 30 setting, the 15 setting, boost, and tone stack, you can cover a huge amount of ground, and the overdrive sounds are unique, musical, and different than the standard overdrives I have.
