Okay but not up to the hype
Jeff RoQ, 16.01.2020
I found the Archer to be ok but not living up to the hype of the pedal or the buzz on you tube - I ended up selling it. I struggled to get a decent drive sound out of it and found it muddy.
My next step into this type of pedal is the RYRA Klone - and to be honest it is way better than the Archer. A bit bigger but around the same price.

Low gain overdrive
William P., 24.08.2016
Used with Les Paul into Hiwatt DR504. I wanted a low gain crunch to drive my Hiwatt which is a very clean amp for rythmn parts. The low gain break-up was not smooth enough for me, however the higher gain end of the pedal sounded fantastic for lead sounds. I then used it on my 1980 Marshall JMP which has a natural break-up it sounded great. The pedal Sound very open and the individual strings come though clearly. I will give it a high Rating because it is excellently built, and would Sound great with an amp that is breaking up already. I have returned it and bought a Fulltone OCD which works better on my set up.

Honest tone and versatile
Chris7502, 31.03.2015
Very pleased with this pedal as have been searching for the right one for a while and too often disappointed. Crunch and break-up drive seems to work best at mid gain levels with single coils but a lovely mellow smooth distortion tone kicks in at higher gain levels with humbuckers. Works brilliantly as a straight boost pedal too.

Amazing reproduction of a timeless classic
Aleksander V., 09.07.2015
I've been building pedals for a while, and I have tried the original, this pedal is based on. There are no sonic difference between the two. Amazing reproduction and build quality
