I have been searching for a long time trying to find an overdrive pedal that gave me: awesome tone, smooth distortion, allowed my guitar and amp to shine through, didn't have intermodulation distortion (nastyness when you play more than one note).This pedal delivered! If you like a smooth, melodic distortion that lets your chords shine through. Plus the ability to boost your solos into pure rockified bliss: this is your pedal! Buy it; it's worth every penny!
The boost is the best part of this box. Absolutely great for punching up the volume on leads for a single channel Marshall Super Lead. Great quality, too. The distortion is alright and an added bonus to a great clean boost pedal.
Absolutely the best I've found for the tones I want. A strat through a deluxe with this pedal allows you to easily play clean, sustained solos or gritty and dirty. Two effects in one box with a power supply, nice. I no longer use my MXR microamp and Ibanez Tubescreamer. More convenient and better sounding.
If getting a boost for solos is a problem, and to me, it seems it would be common, than this is the pedal for you. I was surprised by how few companies produce a pedal strickly for this purpose. Although the distortion feature is average, nice for a bluesy, slight gain on the clean channel, the boost is just what I had been searching for. With the boost level on 2 at most, my solos now cut through beautifully. My only complaint would be that when I tried to run the pedal in series with my other stomp boxes, (and I only use a Chorus, and Whah), the boost didn't work on my Gain channel. It worked fine on the clean channel but was useless for the gain channel. So to remedy this, I ran it through the effects loop and that worked. Unfortunately it adds to more cables to my setup, and I may soon be tripping over myself but it will be worth it. (as long as I can solo from the seat of my pants) Great product.
