The output from this pedal is more on the side of "over-the-top" British. Very little true-Brit style "crunch" on tap ... on minimal gain, you're already way past the light-to-moderate crunch thing. The sound isn't bad .... in fact, I like what AMT does with their circuits ... very rich, full-sounding. The integrated cab modelling inherent in AMT pedals is more good than bad. It works to give you a bit more dynamic sound, but doesn't turn into sterile, plastic "digital". Overall, a good bargain, price-wise; BUT, if you're looking for a wider range of clean-to-crunch-to-heavy gain staging, I'd avoid this pedal ... its a bit TOO gainy.
This is my second AMT Pedal,(the other one is a Fatal Tube) and I gotta say it's just as good. The BRS British sound focuses on the Marshall plexi vibe whereas the Fatal Tube sounds to me more like a Boogie/Mesa approach. The Fatal Tube has a couple of more knobs (a contour, gain, drive). The Brit has four, but it's all I need to get a classic hard rock sound from my '89 Strat played through a Peavey Trans Tube Express. Great string definition and sustain regardless of the gain. Can record direct to mixer if need be. Not for Death Metal but awesome for hard classic rock (AC/DC, Zep, Van Halen etc.)Seems well-built. Buy it dude!
