Value For Money : Excellent
volume here called "loudness"
switch rock / rawk

power supply by battery or DC 9v plugs (classical)


Very easy to adjust.
A fairly wide range notament via the switch rock / rawk.
The light crunch to overdrive relatively vitamin.
Drive on the scale of 0 to 10 I would say it covers 1 to 6.


Often presented as a Marshall in a box, this pedal excels on Fender amps in very bright clean and slamming (twin, deluxe, princeton reverb ...).
Used in my case with a silverface princeton reverb pedal and the true grail for me.
It allows for a crunch marsmalliens hyper convincing a clean amp fabulous. More stack it very well ... tube screamer, big muff etc ...


Finish cheap? Not quite basic.
Seems robust (ras). I have two!
Super price / quality ratio.

In short, like a little secret for very bright amps where other pedals sound "honeycomb" ...
