Years ago I preordered a Distortion Pro just knowing it would be my "Marshall in a box". I was very disappointed and sold it. Then when the OCD ocd hit I dove in again, Vers 1 really didn't do it for me, upgraded to Vers 3 but never really bonded with it either. When the news came out about the RTO I was sceptical and thought I'd wait a good long time before I bought one. Some time has past and the RTO really hasn't caught on much at all. There really hasn't been much said about the pedal here at all. I wondered why and assumed maybe it wasn't very good? Anyway, I got the chance to pick up a store demo for what seemed to be a good price so I thought I'd try it and man it sounds great. This pedal lives up to the hype of the Distortion Pro or the OCD and beats them both. Mike got this one right.
