    some of the hillsong dudes use it...

    but besides that- never played one, or seen anyone use it. i think the consensus is they are solid low gain OD, but there are a ton of pedals in that category that seem like are more unique/versatile and a good deal cheaper.

    James Duke, the guitarist for John Mark Mcmillan, used one for a while.

    I have and use a Divided by 13 Joyride...
    It is a really good boost for a Class A (or a dirivitive) amp on the verge of break up, very dynamic and resonsive to volume changes. Lots of output, the treble and bass knobs are very responsive and the gain goes from minimal gain to adding grit to a almost fuzz; the gain knob is sensitive to minute adjustments and make for wide sonic responses. If your playing into an amp w/ alot of clean headroom (class AB 40+ watts) I would not recomend this pedal, but if you are using something smaller say,15-22 watts and can get the amp cooking without souring the congregation you can get VERY sweet tones.

    I had one for a while. It was good but I found that into a clean amp the drive wasn't that great. It got pretty fuzzy sounding but if the amp was dirty or using it to push another pedal it was great. Also if you keep the drive down it made your guitar sound bigger which made it a great clean boost

    Notice he's using it with a cranked Spitfire.

    Basically, this pedal is best utilized into a broken up el84 amp.
