This is an ok pedal if you own a guitar with single coils, I own a Gibson LP Custom, and am not too overly impressed. I bought the pedal with the intention of "drying out" the sound of my LP when I use it for rhythm playing, which it does great if it is stand alone. I however love my DoubleMuff and cannot use the volume compensator for both pedals at the same time. It is neat to play with however. The pedal seems to be made for single coil instruments though.
I'd say this is a pedal for the guitarist who is bored with the sound of his or her guitar, but doesn't have the dough to fork out money for a new guitar. This will totally change your tone, but that's the point, isn't it? It's a good idea, and it's a quick way to go from beefy/bassy to trebly quacky. Some of the higher range tones are a bit much for my tastes, and some of the lower ones are a bit boomy, but in between there are some interesting tones.
This is a fantastic pedal. I use it with my 5150 and it just makes the tone into the S##T! Supposedly its just a preset EQ and preamp but it DOES something to the sound that I can't discribe. It doesn't seem to be just EQ but like a tone extractor. It makes all these great harmonics sound like they are flying out of the notes. I leave it on most of the time. When I first got it it had a terrible hum which as explained in the manual has to do with not using a regulated power supply. I tried the wrong kind of supply once (years later cause I lost the maunual) and it made a terrible shrieking sound and then wouldn't work. I e-mail Charlie and he told me to send him the pedal and twenty bucks and he'd fix it and sell me a proper power supply.I sent it off and was surpised when it arrived back two days later fixed and ready to rock! Charlie is the MAN! Now it is quite as can be.A real steal and great addition to tonal pallette.
Now that I have this I'd hate to go without it. It's great to get just the tone you're looking for, especially when switching guitars and looking for new or special tones for recordings. I slightly wish it had an actual 'tone' knob for fine tuning but it doesn't really need it. I run a slapback delay after it and it together my guitar tone comes much more to life. I thought about getting this for a while before I finally did and I'm sorry I waited so long. It's very unique and versatile and once you get used to having something like this in your rig you may not ever take it out. Simply put, I get more out of my guitars with this. Be aware it is not a distortion pedal, but will gritty up an already-breaking up tone nicely. Much more useful than the usual clean or treble boosts out there, but also allows for you to use it as such by turning the tone selector to "bypass" and just use the volume knob. Very well built too. The main plus is the variety.
I just got my Very Tone, and I immediately plugged my Tele into it and ran it into my Line 6 Spider II... Not too impressed as far as the Tele goes. I need to play with it a bit, but I fear the Tele bridge pick up is just too much for this box. I like to play on the vintage tweed model in the Line 6, and the Tele/Very Tone combo here is not great - gets real muddy on the low end. I did not get a real sense of the various tones it was trying to reproduce.Was feeling let down, but then I plugged my 50's Classic Strat in... Wow - this box really fattens up the "thin" vintage pick ups in the strat. It really changes the character of the Strat... I think this thing is really made for the "thinner" single coils! Using the Strat, I got a lot closer to the various tones it is supposed to emulate (surf, rockabilly, semi-hollow, etc.).Build quality seems great, no worries there!
