Value For Money : Excellent
Overdrive tube screamer type, Maxon OD8 rather, Who, for those who do not know, is different from the OD9 Maxon, or TS9 Ibanez.

UTILIZATION

Tone, a drive, a volume. What else! Just right.

SOUND QUALITY

This is a clone of the Maxon OD808 (I just Cramer to my great regret, poor diet and yes ...)
I triturated knobs of the two pedals (Maxon and Belcat) in all directions, and in regard to her, my verdict is: it's the same with a little more precision on the maxon on the tone. Indeed, as noted just above, the famous JRC4558, are also present in the belcat.
Manufacturing side, it's much more serious in Maxon (switch and knob) The rubber placed under the Belcat, tes are often the trunk. Same for the Phaser Belcat I own too, but I highly recommend (clone of the MXR phaze 90, with less volume, but a mix knob for more).
In short, his side, the two are superb. Personally, I place recently before them, a booster "Orion" (Elektro booster), which my sublime overdrive.

OVERALL OPINION

I use the overdrive for a long time and I had the opportunity to try a few (Fullton, love, Xotic ...) "handmade" or "footmade" I really do not know. I will only say that his side, the OVD 302 has to suffer from any complex. As for manufacturing, good for the price can not rally too little either (it was butter, we will not ask for money from the butter, the daughter of the ... in short, I Megara) . Belcat three for the price of a Maxon. We just buy another one, in case, we crame one (and yes, do not laugh, it happens) and it is enough to get a drink with friends.
* I have attached pictures to show you with what I use (single coil or humbucker, it's veryguoud). In the records (which are mine), blues, jazz, rock (all types of rock) ... it is for me a kind of overdrive must. And so I think that for zicos, like me, that is, not too rich, not too snobby, Belcat, it just do it.
