All is said, it's simple, and quality.


Nothing wrong with either, the knobs are "fine" in the settings is intuitive on.


I only use it as a boost for gorging little input from my AMT-P1, we must admit that this is the top for this function: OD-808 boost with gain almost mini, tone at 12 o'clock, level to the max, suddenly gain of P1 at 10, it sends serious and clean! Palm mute tearing, taking off harmonics, sustain and crazy sound without retouching in Eq table!

As pure than OD, this is probably what is best for blues and rock slightly heavy, but it is not a distortion of metalheads especially with tuning Drop A. .. In this case it is a great boost which also allows to refine the sound.


To his cause after hesitating between a "clean boost" as the Electro Harmonix LPB-1 and between OD Boss SD-1 or other MXR Zakk Wylde.
Finest in its settings as the LPB-1, more defined in the mids that the MXR, and "everything" that the SD-1.
More if I play one day in a calmer note, I already have that in this area seems to be the top.

It's decided, I go to green ...
