I know there've been quite a few comments and reviews on the Badgerplex, but after getting mine this week, I had to write a note. In a word, it "completes" the tone, and it will never be shut off. The only way I can describe it is to say that it adds something I didn't realize was missing. No matter what style, how much dirt, OD, or how clean, it adds a strength and sparkle to the overall tone that I haven't had since my old Echoplex died decades ago. I don't have the others to compare it with, but if you don't have one or one like it, you should. If you already do, you should get another just in case you lose this one.
