Best overdrive/distortion I've ever used
So I got my dr. z amp with my LP Black Beauty and my ernie ball vol. pedal > comp pedal > tech 21 pedal > TS9 mod > van amp reverb pedal > amp, and all I can say is WOW first off this replaces about 3 pedals in my f/x chain. This pedal is incredible. Yes it creates a lot of noise and hiss however, it seems to blast my proficiency 100 fold. I can play like Hendrix with this pedal. I know it may sound like a crutch but man I've tried literally ever overdrive pedal and I bought this just b/c I felt like it and it beats all my other famous, well known and popular overdrive/distortion pedals. the EQ is perfect I tend to boost the lows and cut the highs - just my cup of tea. I love to push the drive all the way to the extreme keep the levels low as possible (so i don't clip my mic's) and its just amazing. Do not underestimate this pedal. Do NOT do what I did and that is to buy a 100 overdrive/distortion pedals only to be totally dissatisfied, just get this one and you don't need tube screamers, nor blues drivers, nor OCD's, etc. Trust me on this you will not regret it. And with sweetwater's return policy you got 30 days to make up your mind.
