  • Probably one of the better pedals I've ever used; this doesn't necessarily mean it's good in a feedback loop (when you do, though, it just makes a funky jet noise when you tweek the frequency knob), but it's very useful for other things because with all the knobs turned to the right, it rapes the hell out of your signal. This is definitely one of the nastier distortion/overdrive pedals I've used.
  • Good Points: nasty nasty distortion/OD sturdy and heavy as all fuck(the way I like it) Insane with an analog synth great bypass
  • Bad Points: not too good for feedback loops if that's your thing might be too bulky for some.
  • Price Paid: US$0.00
  • Purchased At: borrow it from a friend for gigs

  • On a scale of 1-10: 7 As I'm sure many others would feel, this pedal gives a more analog sounding distortion than it's Boss DS or MT counterparts. The 7 knobs (is it 7?) allows for great flexibility in sound. Why I give it a 7 is because though the aural possibilities seem endless, there are only a few really cool sounds that you can get from this box.
  • Good Points: It's very good for experimentation. The overdrive option is really all you need for wonderful distortion, cos ironically I feel that the overdrive option gives a better distortion than the distortion option. Very, very sturdy. Cheap too!
  • Bad Points: Hmm.. pretty heavy? As in the weight is kinda heavier than the normal effect pedal. Though there are two options, the distortion and overdrive, I think people won't find the distortion option useful.

  • Nice distortion pedal with a large number of knobs (7 knobs) to contor the sound. This makes the pedal rather hard to find the sweet spot. It took about 6 months before I started to enjoy this pedal, it's much harder to find the right place than other distortion pedals. But it's got plenty of gain, & good heavy distortion if you want it. It has two modes overdrive (for boosting or lighter distortion) or distortion (metal sound)
  • Good Points: Lots of gain, quite a nice distortion pedal. Two modes. Built like a tank. Cheap.
  • Bad Points: Knightmare to tweak and find a good sound. Bit of a one sound pedal, not much variety. Get's a little boring after a while.
