Nails That Marshall Tone
Fender MIM Stratocaster HSS (with Seymour Duncan JB)
Bugera V22 Infinium
Appropriately named, this pedal gives a nice crunchy distortion tone for blues or classic or hard rock. If you like the Marshall sound but don't want to dish out hundreds of dollars for one this would probably be great for you. If you turn the distortion level all the way down and mess with the EQ controls it can be very transparent, going from the slightest breakup to a thick, powerful crunch that holds true to your original tone, but at about 3 o' clock it starts to sound pretty mushy and undefined (probably isn't the best pedal for metal).
I originally picked this up to boost the midrange of my Big Muff and to get some light break-up without having to crank my amp to volumes that would piss of my neighbors (my amp's distortion channel sounds pretty weak at low levels), and it did its job very well. It works well for boosting other distortion pedals and it can add some flavor to them with the tonal control it offers. However, it doesn't take being boosted very well, as again, it can get pretty mushy at higher gain levels.
The 3-band EQ makes this pedal pretty versatile, as the usual single tone knob can be limiting at times. It has dark-sounding highs and bright lows so it's not very open-sounding compared to my clean tone (a slight difference), but it may tame any "icepickiness" you may have. The mids have a throaty quality to them which I'd compare it to ACDC's tone, and when the mids are boosted this pedal kind of gets that "cocked wah" sound.
Bottom line is, it probably won't blow you away but it definitely won't disappoint. I'd recommend it to someone who's just getting serious about guitar and wants to pick up a good distortion pedal for a decent price. If you're not into anything super heavy I'd give it a try.
