    It is the secret weapon on this box, everybody.

    I've had mine for a month and haven't had the courage to go under the hood. The PCB is attached to the backplate and I didn't want to risk bricking a $250 pedal and waiting weeks to repair due to a snapped solder connection or what have you.

    Turns out a previous owner had turned the trim all the way back, decapitating all of the sparkle in the attacks. I dove in, brought it back up and....:omg

    Do it! No fear!

    Absolutely, just take your time and be gentle when removing the plate. Clockwise gives you more attack, CC gives you more squash. Surprisingly, there's a lot of travel in the pot. I pegged mine all the way CW and then backed off about 10-15%.

    Sounds killer now!
