  • I bought this pedal for bass, and it's great (read AMAZING) for that, but that's not what this is about. I tried to use it for noise, and it sucked. It's so bassy that the low feedback just captures all and you get the exact same sound all the time. And that sound is muddy and sort of bland. It's tweakable, but the range of possible sounds is incredibly limited. I suppose that it could be usefull if you have a lot of guitar distortions that give high, tinny sort of sounds and you want to get a thick, beefy, bottom, but it's going to be a one-trick pony, and there's probably better ways to do that. It's loud, I'll give it that.
