distortion pedal makes the distortion!

three easy knobs to adjust

very sweet and very nice switch (not "click")

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is simple, and the three knobs are easy to adjust, no need for manual.

SOUND QUALITY

This is where the shoe pinches! As in other reviews, I was amazed by the demo on youtube that foreshadowed a great organic and natural sound. For the purpose we are left with a fairly chemical sound gets lost in the mix when playing in a group, and a compressed mess sound.
In short, a very flattering low volume at home or in the store, but inoperable group when you push the sound, which is untoward for a distortion pedal.

(I tried it with gibson les paul / sg standard in a VHT Pitbull CL50EQ and baffle marshall slash edition)

OVERALL OPINION

In short, I am disappointed and I do not have that choice, even for the price!

As above:
Disortion typed vintage pedal.
Three knobs: Level, Tone, Gain.
Peculiarity of the Switch start that does not "click": Original!
9V DC power supply or battery-type Boss.

UTILIZATION

like any distortion pedal has three knobs!

SOUND QUALITY

Against by the very top ...
I saw a demo on youtube that was just WHAOOOUUU!
But in fact it is far from that (for me at least) I play on a tv and a tube amp (hayden)
I play so far on a Boss DS-1 with a change kit (msm) (I aileurs account that makes this kit is simply MAGIC!)
The sound seems "compressed" as the pedal was clamped sis ...
It is not clear ... not sharp
I said it's not dégeu but ... we will say that I'm...…

It is not clear ... not sharp
I said it's not dégeu but ... we will say that I'm staying on my boss Ds-1 change!

OVERALL OPINION

For 45 € (modelle expo) I'm not too ripped off!
But for 100 € (in shop) I THINK THAT ITS NOT WORTH THE!
Greatly prefer a good change DS-1 like me! worth € 50 in Cygnus (30 + 20 pedal kit)
I'm really quite over by this pedal dégeu not because it is as said above! but it is just a lot worse than what we can see from the demo viedo ...

Peculiarity of the Switch start that does not "click": Original!
Boss type 9V DC power supply or battery.

UTILIZATION

Very simple.
A manual with a few adjustments.

SOUND QUALITY

Very good distortion as long as we do not expect the "heavy" so to forget for the metal.
The gain range is large, we start at 9 am with a good OD and we ended up a great disto Hard Rock: Gary Moore, Slash and Co are!
It very well with both single and double pickups.

OVERALL OPINION

Pedal too unknown to my taste, not for bcp more expensive than other brands, have really a distortion of quality remains after a mid-range pedal does not ask the impossible!
Very good choice for that expensive a moderate Distortion quality and cheap!
I do it again this election if I buy a pedal Devaya less than € 100 it would be this one!
