This pedal has been incredibly disappointing.
It is so dark and muddy that it just sounds "dull" to me, no matter what setting. You have to have an extremely bright sounding guitar and amp both to get a decent sound out of this, and/or an EQ pedal.
The mid-cut and tone knobs are weak and do very little to sculpt the sound.
The gain structure of the distortion is also very loose, like an amp-in-a-box type pedal. Since it is not marketed as an AIB pedal, I expected more pedal like distortion. Personally, I have zero use for a pedal that creates "amp like distortion", I have amp heads for that.
I wanted to try it out on all of my equipment before I passed final judgment on it and now I have passed up the ten day window to return it to the local shop that I purchased it from, so I guess it will end up on the trading block. I was also looking at pedals from Emma, Egnater, and AmpTweaker, and now I wish I had went with one of them instead.
The EQ version would probably be much better because I can get some half way decent sounds out of it when using an MXR 10 Band EQ pedal.
It is quite, well made, and the price is not bad for an American made pedal but, overall I can't recommend it unless you play mainly metal rhythm and prefer a very, very, dark sound.
