With the right valve amp this pedal can sound shockingly similar to a fuzzface. No I'm not joking. I used this with a marshall MG HDFX 100 and it sounded like a synthesizer. With my new bugera 1960 plexi and also with my epiphone valve jr, it sounds amazing. Very useful if you're into anything from hendrix to the white stripes. I have the FX55B.
This has served me great for almost 5 years. I used to use it as a Distortion pedal into an older roland cube60 ;) But now I use to overdrive my tube amps. I set the volume all the way up and the gain almost all the way down. and tone all they way up. It sends my Laney GH50 into complete heaven. And works great with my little valve junior!!!!! And I play a lot of metal core, and said NU metal if you want to call it that. This is a great pedal if you can use it right.
well, i got mine free from a friend who sold his guitar, so i dont know how old it is, but my guess would be mine is a late 1990's model. i plugged it in next to my BOSS DS-1, and they sounded really similar at first. later i noticed that the DOD has a bit more treble in the mix. i couldnt get that chunky rectifier sound like the BOSS can get with the tone all the way in the bass section, but this has a more sparkley sounding distortion. on a plus note, this guy can have the level dialed WAY LOW so you just have a light signal boost (good on bends). it also can get VERY LOUD... a lot louder then my DS-1. basically, the "level" knob has the greatest range of any distortion.it a pretty good pedal over all, graet for the price.
I've always thought this pedal kind of sucks, but I got it used for cheap and It seemed okay.I used to play in a band with a guy that played a Jay Turser. Don't get me started on that. Anyway, with my strat it sounds pretty okay fuzz distortion. On his Jay Turser however, it sounds like a video game... a really crappy one at that.So if you're just starting out and think this is a budget pedal, and you're playing a cheap guitar DON'T BUY IT. If you're buying it cause it's cheap and you have a good guitar... I'd say it's not quite worth this much, but if you like fuzzy overdrive with a lot of noise feedback then you'll like it. You might need a noise gate for this one though...
This pedal is so awesome! I bought it off a friend after he got new equiptment, and I've had it for about two years with absolutley no problems at all. It has this really cool grungy sound to it. I would definatly recommend this pedal to anyone who likes to jam hard!
I got this pedal used. Its not super bad. I have a Metal Zone and use it to boost this one for a solo or somthing. For the price, its worth it. Mine was like built from late 1993-1996 and it still works good. It's ok. Not the best, but if you don't have the money, get a Boss or Digitech or a Behringer....no im joking bout the last one.
First of all, I don't own this pedal, and I only used it for about two hours. As far as I could tell it didn't really give me a good chunky distortion. It sounds well, High pitched. It would be a very good pedal for punk rock and other such rock. If you play Metal like me than this isn't the pedal for you. However, this is a DOD pedal, which is my favorite company. It has extremly durable metal construction and will probably never break(unless you drop it off a building or kick it off stage). So, overall, this is a good pedal for Punk.
I've had this pedal going on 6 years. I've done some ammature recording with it through my PC, and I get a great sound. Works well with any guitar/amp combo I've eveer played it through, although anything with active pickups really bring this puppy to life. It's a realiable pedal, and I recomend it to anyone.
its an okay pedal, but that guy who said it sounded uglier and fuzzier...maybe it was b/c u had ur amps gain and boost up...u should leave it on clean and try to use ur pedal...see what kind of sound u get from that, ok well overall, this pedal is pretty decent, very cheap and the sound u get from it isn't exactly "awesome", but it's good enough for practices. If u can spend an extra 10 bucks, ur better off with a boss or digitech. If u have 80 bucks to spend, get a Boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion, it's pretty awesome.
it sounds great me and my baby have never been happier. My gloria purrs like a kitten now.....ya i named my guitar so what!?
