Excellent piece of gear
VisiblyUpset, 21.08.2019
It sits at the end of my signal chain and gives an excellent sparkly crunch tone that works well for bluesy licks as well as more saturated hard rock/metal tone territory. Pro's, well the enclosure is sturdy and it feels like a quality piece of hardware, but after that it come down to "do you like the tone it makes, or would make if you swapped the tube", Cons... it's pretty large physically and quite power hungry, although it will run on 9v-12v so that's pretty flexible, There are a lot of boards with 12v outputs on the PSU sat idle because most modern pedals are 9v only.
