Big sound, little footprint

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the distortion sounded from this little box. I bought a practice amp (blackstar ht-1) and a couple small pedals. This was one of them, and for high gain this more than fit the bill. A couple co-workers tried my little practice setup and said "wow, this is a pretty good distortion, especially for such a tiny pedal". And it's built pretty well too, for it's size it's got a little weight to it. It's probably closest in resemblance to say a Wampler Triple Wreck in terms of gain sound type, though I don't think it was meant to be an emulation of it exactly. It's great for heavy rhythm, and with an OD pushing it, it does sing pretty well for leads.
