Analog soft overdrive that sounds like the original.
Connections: In/out jack connectors. Power supply input.

UTILIZATION

Very easy use with only three knobs: tone, drive and level... no surprises!

SOUND QUALITY

Super overdrive to play blues or even soft rock songs. Very good to push a tube amp a bit further. It sounds awesome with a Strat and a Les Paul (studio and P90). I tested it with a Marshall TSL 602, a Laney LC 50, a Fender Hot Rod and two Hugues and Kettner Tube 50 and Attax 50: it sounds good with every single amp!!

Sometimes it sounds "tiny" with my Strat. The 3-way switch is also very good to use the pedal as a clean booster (if you set the drive control almost at 0).

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for 3 months. The setting is easy. I previously tested many other overdrive pedals (BOSS Japan, Fulltone, modern Ibanez...). It's the best one.
Unbeatable value for money (if you assemble it yourself).
I chose this brand again to make me a DIY multi-effect.
