See the other reviews. This is a tube overdrive (powered by a high voltage)


Very simple configuration (there are 3 knobs ..), Manual nice but unnecessary.
Edition ultra simple, each setting opens the door to a new paradise sound


Used with a Mexican Start 2004, as amended: 2 Fender Texas Special pickups and a seymour duncan side handle, plus a "mid boost" to Clapton, all performed by a real luthier specialized. Vox AD50VT amp, mainly on boutique clean, blackface or tweed


For a week, and I confirm all the good they said so far.
It's solid stuff, serious, and most of all, the sounds are fabulous.
No way to stop playing! Even my wife came down to ask me if I had a new amp, new guitar or two ... and how much it had cost.
When I told him it was just "small" (it's a real tank) I had to pedal 79 euros on ebay, she did not even ask to lower the sound.
We are far from desperate overdrive of some brands.
