Grid Slam

I will warn you.... once you use this in front of your favorite modern distortion tones, you will never not use it again. The way this pedal tightens up the feel and tone of your amp is amazing. I have the gain on zero and tone at 2 o clock. Level at 12 o clock. I use it in front of my Kemper currently and previously with Recto heads and I am very happy. There are numerous ways to employ this pedal but I only use it to tighten up my main dirty rigs and it's worth every penny. Buy it.

Best OD for classic rock

I own a LOT of pedals.. And in a huge fan of overdrives.. This is the best i ever have.. Its like a tube screamer with so much more tone and gain.. Sonds awesome with my mesa boogie express and with my Orange tiny terror.. The best of the grid slamer is that increase the natural tone of the amp and the guitar without lose their natural caracter.. The pedal its classic mesa boogie.. Hard like a rock..

Add sear to your tone while maintaining control

I have a few OD pedals, but this likely will take a permanent place in my FX chain before my amp. I use this in front of a Kemper and a Mark V and it allows me to take a lower-gain overdriven tone into a more saturated level but without adding the noise and extreme sensitivity of trying to do the same thing with the amp's gain itself. This allows me to get the warmth, sustain, and tone I want by modifying this pedal's controls. Using this pedal, I can take a sound that's otherwise not gain-heavy enough and put it right where I want it. Even with the gain turned all the way down and the level cranked, or level evened out and the gain much higher, I have tons of control. Not 5.0 stars because I find the tone knob a little hard to distinguish as I work with it. I'm going to also to pick up the Flux Drive at some point and work with them together - this pedal is probably the best OD I own, and the best one I've tried as far as I can remember...
