paid £130 online - cheaper than my local music stores by £20.

first things first - this is not the kind of pedal u plug in a start banging out metallica riffs on. its a subtle increase of gain that just gives you that little bit extra when it comes to your solos. the tone is perfect! its warm, smooth and will complement anyone playing solos that don't require layers and layers of distortion. after all, stevie ray vaughan used these - and the moment you plug a strat into it you can see why. i use it with everything at 12 o'clock and it still makes me smile 6 months down the line.

the price is pretty steep and yea it looks a little goofy but thats it.

very strong metal construction - this thing can take a beating. hell if u kick enuff cr*p out of it you could always resell it as a vintage.

if you want to 'play every note' then this is the pedal for you. what i mean by that is, its not the kind of pedal Vai would use to do his lightning fast hammer-on cross-taps etc this is the perfect pedal for ppl that like heavy strings (i use 13s) and play everything with the hammer down - without reling on tiny thin strings and a bunch of effects.

think SRV and KWS and you've got a pretty good idea of how this sounds.
