Two channels, buttons everywhere (worse than a horny teenager), germanium as the tube screamer! Beautiful decor and size pedal "boutique", a sexy as hell!


We have a channel "crunch / overdrive" and a second "fuzz / distortion", the two are combined. Tone settings independent bias also level and gain, plus a last simulating a battery or amp end of life on the canal more biting.
In short, a total of three distinct sounds directly accessible by foot.


There germanium and it feels! The dynamics of the pedal is purely astonishing! Each channel has its own personality, the first remaining in overdrive quite content, can take the place of boost, the second is much more biting, eyeing the Coote acid fuzz with more gain!
The knob simulating the state of battery provides a well disgusting!
I admit I was a little less convinced by the sum of the two where the breath reigns and where they should be securely fastened to attack it right!


A nice pedal, fun to use, as a circuit which responds to lights, sounds warm and organic with a real personality ... To try to fall in love (or not).
