Paid $50 at a used place.

It sounds very good if the gain not set too high (Maybe 10 o'clock maximum). At that level or less, it is more dynamic and, although a tube amp sounds better, it can fool the average bear while the band is rockin' live.

There is a nasty tail as the note dies that is typical of these types of transistor pedals... but you have to really listen so it's no big deal. It also slightly kills your low end but it's not as bad as, say, the Boss SD-1.


In my opinion, the pedal is a good tonal option if , like me, you prefer an analog pedal board instead of digital all-in-one effects. To me it sounds good with a Fender but better with a Gibson.
