Value For Money : Excellent
3 buttons rglages, trs so simple. One can hardly miss the buttons ave this size!


Easy to use, like all pedals, turn the knobs and it works!


Volume, effective background has really sounds trs fort, has adapted according to the clear sound.
The tone is very fat goes from very serious to super sharp, but keeps out the cot fat fuzz, not at all aggressive
The sustain is the rate-distortion. Near the minimum, dj greasy, and funding is really fat but still rev pretty clean anyway. But happened to 3 / 4 I can not find a lot of diffrence until the end of the race knob .. I put personal background, with a marshall lamps, love, and I even added an overdrive that an equalizer, and my god sounds! Well it's pretty typical to say that the pop rock and we must avoid the mtal not aggressive enough I think ....
I have a fender mustang and therefore has a marshall lamp trs go well, APRS with humbuckers in my squier jagmaster I do not like for cons, the sound is puffy I find, it comes likely the microphones ...
I put 10 for the quality of sound, APRS is subjective, must love that sound.


I use it for 4 years I think, and I chose it because it's really the sound I was looking for, APRS DIFFERENT MODELS essays. I also have a Turbo Rat fuzz but I like less, too "rtro" I got.
I had sometimes buzz, I do not know if it s the fact that I have all my pedals connected to the same power supply, which is nevertheless stable. I tried with a pile right on the Big Muff, and other mains, but the buzz still silent l.. I really do not know where that came from ... A friend also had a problem of buzz ...
Report quality discount, especially since it has fallen a bit over time I believe it.
Otherwise they could have put it in a smaller box with a multi effect pedals and 2 or 3, began to close ...
