I bought the unit over the Internet from PieDog.com (a UK Internet only instrument dealer) for the princely sum of GBP 40

It is controlled using the normal drive and volume pots, as well as a full three band EQ.

The overdrives produced by the Daddy-O are some of the most manageable and useable I have come across to date. In tone, it is fairly similar to an Ibanez TS9 Tubescreamer (although only half the price)
The build is fantastic - mine's been dropped at least 100 times over the 12 months I've owned it, and I've hardly even managed to knock the paint off it!

The only thing I'm not too keen on with this pedal is the closeness of the knobs. My fat little fingers sometimes have trouble getting in there.

Build quality is fantastic - made out of some sort of cast metal which appears to be 1/8 inch thick.

While not suitable for all applications (especially metal and that sort of thing) all round it is a fantastic overdrive pedal. You really can't buy better for this sort of price.
