I'd gigged with a DLS v2 before, but I had really only used it as my "Marshally" overdrive pedal. It sounds good as a stand alone OD pedal, but it shines when you use it as directed by the good folks at Catalinbred. I pretty much ran it all night last night on Rock mode with the internal toggle slid to the left. I set the tone at about 11, loudness from noon to 2 and the gain from 10 to 2 depending on the tune. I was able get a nice warm crunchy, chimey tone out of my Tele and MAz 18. I think it's going to be a permanent fixture on the board.
