    I had one (when it was blown out for $20 or $30). It did do something, brightening, whatever, but I sold it a long, long time ago.

    I want a pedal that I can put at the end of the chain to cancel out all the other engaged effects and make it sound like a crappy guitar with no pedals into a bad amp. All at the stomp of a footswitch!

    I do use a simple looper that bypasses all my pedals except for the tuner and clean boost which are the first and last devices in the chain.
    I added that because when a patch cord fails during a gig you can't troubleshoot it and find the culprit quickly.
    I hit the bypass and the signal goes straight to the amp except for the two boxes mentioned.
    (If the bad cord is connected to either one of those, I'll know right away if I hit the bypass and still have a problem)
    Bypassing the board if a cord fails gets me through the set.
    I can find the bad connection on my break.

    Have a decent guitar and amp and it will sound fine plugged straight in; just with fewer options.

    Maybe consider a ComaTone as well?

    I don't know what a ComaTone is.
