    I pulled this out of retirement last night to change things up and ran it through the 'clean' channel of my Orange AD30 (Channel 1). Man...I thought it sounded great. Very convincing MIAB and I forgot how cool a pedal this is for $30 bucks if I recall. Only thing is that I still hate those control knobs being attached to one another or however you'd describe it.
    You adjust one...the other moves, too.

    Giving props to a cheapy, but goody

    i thought the distortion was pretty rough sounding but the od was decent. i actually picked one up used for a GC for $10. no idea what happened to it, lol.

    Yes, I should have stated that the distortion side is not good at all. The OD side is what I use

    Ya I have one of these kicking around as well! Distortion side is just to much, but the OD side is a really great MIB. Always think of this one when people are on the hunt for a MIB pedal, but know it wont get considered, because it is not a 200 plus boutique pedal.

    I had one a long time ago and played the OD side as well. I liked it much better than the Guv'nor Plus I had at the same time. Clipping LEDs and everything.

    For a non-boutique, off-the-shelf pedal, it's awesome for what it does.

    I've had one for years and still enjoy it. I use the OD side as well.

    I'm actually looking for a used one for those rare times I want to play a heavy marshall sound.
