I was looking for a sustain pedal with "violin like sounds" like it says. This doesnt have it. The sustain is barely noticeable and it plays mutes for crap. If your looking for a bright distortion pedal, this might be for you, but otherwise save your money.
I play a Blues Jr amp in my home. This pedal is almost unusable with a single coil guitar. If you want sustain, pedal has to be dimed yet the noise at that level is overbearing! Using as a distortion only is ok. You cannot get "singing sustain" at low volumes with this pedal. It is a bit quieter with a Les Paul. Not what was advertised.
I've had this for several years now. I bought it for the sustain - wanted to hold a note forever. It's fairly good at the sustain, but the thing about this thing is the vibe, it's got a certian tone that I don't quite get from other pedals. It wouldn't be my primary pedal by any means, but there are certian leads I just love this thing for. I have rotated alot of pedal through my pedal box over the years and this one remains. It is a little noisy but most if not all sustainers I've heard are, I probably would not use it to record. Best thing to do is try one out and if you don't like it don't buy it (or return it.
I think Guyatone should make more of an effort to make sure people realize that this pedal has a distortion effect. I bought it looking for something that could add some sustain to my sound. Well, I got sustain, but I got an unexpected distortion effect, too. After turning the gain all the way down, the distortion was still there, which I did not want. For a pedal that supposedly has compression, sustain, and distortion effects within it, I would expect more than two knobs to control everything (not including the effect on/off switch, of course). Ultimately, I sold the pedal on eBay and bought the ST2 instead.
