overdrive + clean boost (the clean boost is placed after the OD so it increases the volume and not gain)
one side with an overdrive:

_ A switch to enable / disable the overdrive
_ Volume
_ Tone
_gain
_a fat switch / reg to obtain two types of sound

and the other a boost:

_switch to enable / disable the boost (the boost is independent of the overdrive)
_volume

pedal steel is so heavy and sturdy and quite impressive.

UTILIZATION

the effect is very easy to use, we chose the world (reg or fat), it adjusts the gain volume and the tone is gone. a knob for the boost so we can not get any easier.

the volume pot is very pleasant to run. the switch works fine ...

SOUND QUALITY

in sound.

already in overdrive. rather it is typed british, it sounds pretty marshall. at the two mode one is clearly in the same type of grain. in reg, the sound will be clearer and chattering, while in fat sound will be darker, bold and the output level will be slightly higher. positions in both the grain is very similar, slightly more appropriate for his sharp and dry while the other will be more adapted to his fatter and hoarse. in both cases the gain goes far enough to engage in leads to endless sustain with my telecaster. So it's going from clean boost mode reg (in ca fat crunch already well) with a tele-mounted microphones simple to spot that big sound mode with the gain fat bottom.

so basically with od you get a vintage sound in mind with either a marshall sound clear and brilliant dry or something more thick and heavy. overdrive also behaves very well boost, either to make the edge (by reg) or the thickness (in fat) but in both cases it's going to compress the color and contrast to boost its

the clean boost it is transparent to the beginning of the race is going to thicken the sound and attenuate the treble a bit on the end of the race. Perfect for solo, it adds depth to the sound and softened the sharp-edged enough to od. it is placed after the overdrive on the pedal, but strangely it increases the gain and little volume.

the boost is really very good

OVERALL OPINION

this pedal is really good. is one of the best I had in my hands. Zvex box of rock, Fulltone OCD, t-rex mudhonney, sound Proco rat mojo France cobra, Ibanez TS9, maxon OD808 od9 and more ... I briefly had a lot of pedals, the pedal and it surely has the best qaulité money

for those who want a pedal to the grain type British or even just a boost the dc drive is exellent, and value for money in my opinion unbeatable. 2 overdrive and a boost as good for less than 100euros worth it.

I never put 10 out of 10 has a pedal is the first time, but this pedal, if you like grain, is really perfect, and for the price the quality is really. it blows pretty good when you push the gain but good catch.
