classic pedal EHX
everything is already said

UTILIZATION

it would take almost three hands, both Volt and Bias controls interact - you can always phrase sampler guitar and hands free
Once the correct adjustment found, there is no reason to change it - it will change depending on the guitar used, output levels in particular

SOUND QUALITY

used with a jazzmaster or telecaster Vox 15 +
the coloring of the sound does not clearly distinguish the nature of the guitar or microphone
If we talk about sound quality, it is necessarily subjective: it is dirty, greasy, hot, it sizzles
but I love
- Like we're stuck in the British rock between 1964 and 1970 ... Kinks Zeppelin, what ...
for those seeking to balance the nervous riff, it responds much to attack, and the effect was not long sustain - this tells the ropes "unaffected" continue to resonate in a transparent manner. There is no compression of the overall signal, but what happens in the crunch is "fat" ... I recommend putting very little gain on the amp, but engage the drive channel to react to slightest jolt; the idea, anyway mine here: this is the pick that controls the effect

OVERALL OPINION

used for a few days, the first steps are weird: you plug it sounds Direct Garage: large color; then tweaking we realize that there is plenty of positions that seem unnecessary, even a slight boost a little warm, like lamps
the settings contrary to what I read on this page does not change the tone: they allow to find the level at which the effect occurs: there are plenty of positions where it nothing happens or the sound is muted . I recommend putting a max output volume guitar pedal reacts at: it takes a lot to the dynamics of the game and that's cool. With an amp drive system is engaged behind complete and extremely responsive, and it's still in front of the reverb (if the amp has one of course), very far / as it can become transparent if the strings caress. I also recommend placing delay or reverb pedals before, contrary to common sense that it will level the ridges which shall activate the crunch. I love his versatility not!
