Goes without saying....
...that JHS makes excellent pedals, and this one is no exception. In fact, this is probably the only pedal I would recommend someone use in place of an amp's gain. It's that good. The 808 side is, as many have already stated, better than the classic 808's (in my opinion, at least). And as for the "Angry Charlie" side, well, Andy Timmons has allegedly started using it as his main dirty sound onstage. And when a guy like that who has access to plenty of much more expensive options chooses a pedal, you know it's gotta be good. I can certainly attest that it IS good. Not only is there plenty of gain on tap, but it's natural, organic, open sounding gain, just like a modded Marshall, or JCM 800. Add the 808 side as a boost to the Charlie side, and you have an exceptional, muscular lead tone!
Until I can afford my own Friedman JJ, this will be all I use for overdrive and distortion tones!
I'll also just add that Sweetwater, as per usual, was excellent with my order. Mine was actually on demo sale, but it still arrived in perfect condition, with it's original packaging! Sweetwater is the only online retailer I turn to!
