Single pedal, two-channel metal case, true bypass.
Simple if claro.
I bought this pedal on a whim after reading the reviews Solobluesman (Thanks man!).
Indeed, life, but bigger, bigger, stronger.
To the point that I wonder if it should be put in pre or post.
I tested both. It becomes an (almost) clean boost in front of my zendrive, my Satchurator, my Shredmaster which makes the liquid distortion and better defined. In the post satch and shred gains in definition as if it was a shop version of the same pedal.
Pure clean my Fender Hot Rod Deville wins in punch (and yet simulate 6L6 to inject the signal ... in 6L6 it may seem silly!). BUT WHAT HER!
I think it takes two. A pre and post!
for 2 hours and WOW WOW WOW
Jump on that's all I have to say.
Controlled there 6 days to U.S., delivered this morning.
This double pedal has no effect per se .. But it produces an effect of madness ....
Rather it is intended to boost, energize, excite see modulate the sound of your guitar, and especially that of tubes in your amp:
The single word is too strong .... use is very intuitive.
The manual has served for me to understand that the gain does not work as an increase in gain strength, but more like a change in the type of gain.
Otherwise, volume, everyone knows, a tone, it's the same ...
Here is finally the item or I can talk about the beast with a little anecdote:
I had this pedal for a few weeks and was tested on a transistor amp.
She gave my clear sounds a very nice crunch and a lot of heat there or transistors missing.
The result already liked me, but I had given me that 10% of its capacity.
I found an ad for an amp at H & K, the dual84 statesman and test it, I'll take the pedal.
Arrived at a super user friendly and possessor of a large rehearsal room, it heats the amp and discuss pending.
This charming gentleman tells me that this amp is not suited to the sounds he wants, and he could never really get huge and very warm crunch. The overdrive channel of this amp is very fast "too much" no real niche between the clean channel and distortion channel.
are installed, one branch is tested .... I almost can not buy the amp .. He never sounded like that, never been so its good.
The seller of the amp (which had just bought a big head in ENGL) ordered to clean the twin drive the very next day.
This pedal with two channels as all twin in GFS.
the first channel, the boost, 6L6 acts as an exciter lamp, it is very hard to define.
It already provides a very effective tone correction and boosts choice, the bass or treble.
Gain it is not strictly speaking as a volume, mm if pushing to the max, it grows stronger in the amp.
It is a feeling of warmth in the sound, crunch, crunch see thick.
And this is where the gain plays, more gain, more rounded, more big sound, almost overdrive ... but the sound does not come from the pedal, it is your lamps are sublimated .. . mm low volume on the amp, the sound is similar to that of lamps subject to high volume.
All in all, if your amp is great it will be magical ....
And if you looked "basic" it will surprise you.
I also have a little Epiphone Valve Special ... with the twin is 5 w crazy, I could almost cover a drummer ...
The 12AX7 channel is it something else altogether:
Mm if its operation is similar to the boost, since it is also on your amp, the sounds coming out are much more incisive, sharp.
The highs are sublimated, it's like with a vintage marshall.
A master to adjust the volume as you want, and when I say that it can boost your sound, this is madness, a simple press of the pedal with a master above noon and hear more than you ...
The tone is very effective, and even gain a correction given to his character.
The big plus is that these two channels can be combined, sublimating each other.
If one brings warmth, softness and grain, and the other teeth and sharp, all is top notch.
For those who went to see my profile and my equipment, I have a lot of guitars, and whatever it is, its characteristics are met, sublimated.
I use this pedal consistently, it is part of my sound, and I could not do without.
I do not know if there is on the market another pedal like him, I had not tried this anyway.
What I find great about this pedal is that it respects both the sound of your guitar with all its characteristics: type of wood, electronics, etc. .. but also and more importantly, those of your amp.
Unless you have exactly the same hardware as your neighbor across the street, and the same settings, this pedal will make your unique sound ...
As for the price .... I'm surprised that GFS can sell at that price ... and then there are those who earn a very good living in other brands ..
In this proposal:
I read a lot of negative reviews on the GFS products, and I beg to deal with those above.
This American manufacturer (which is like all manufacture most of its products in Asia) is going intermediaries to sell products, you will not be able to buy them in stores, but will be obliged to directly control the USA ( the bargain, person to fatten the way).
The dollar is very low compared to the Euro, which covers postage.
Everything I ordered from GFS (and believe me, it is often) happens by the cheapest means available to them up to 8 days.
For less than $ 150 including shipping order, there is no customs fees. (I deliberately limited to $ 100 of merchandise to avoid compulsory insurance costs)
All this to say that a pedal like the one sold now $ 63 you get home in 8 days 68 €.
The case is metal, buttons and quality components, excellent sound, a ridiculous price my faith in regard to what is offered in exchange ....
I am so happy with my purchase I am back from other pedals in GFS, so I'll post as impressions ....
I reassure those who might think I have shares in GFS, I do not think they are traded .... but when you are satisfied with something, and it's worth it, it is informed ...
