    I just got mine today and I am VERY impressed! It was just what I was looking for in a fuzz. I stack it into my KoT going right into an old JMP with results of instant goodness.

    Yeah, that's what I hear. It sounded damn good outta the box! Are you stacking it with anything?

    No, I do "hit" it with my clean boost which really makes the Astro SOAR!!! I find no need to stack it with an OD.

    No stacking here either. This does plenty of good on it's own.

    That's kinda like what I'm doing. Running it right into the yellow channel of the KoT, basically a clean boost. Are you using it as always on?

    Pedal sounds BOMB in my Princeton Reverb, my Vox Night Train and best of all in my Juke Coda. take the time to do what Mike suggests with the Astro. Leave it on all night one time to "wake up" those NOS trannies.
