Only had a couple gigs out with mine playing thru a Fender Hot Rod Dlx. Absolutely loved it! That being said, it's not an 'always on' pedal for my rig. Some of my drive pedals like the 'bright' mode, some 'mid' and the others with it off.I've been wondering, is the effect from this pedal audible in live situations? I can understand using it in a recording scenario but I'm not sure if it would be worth it in a live gig scenario.
