The title says it all. Looking to hear about experiences, likes, and dislikes from guys who played it. Nothing against the geniuses who can assess solely by youtube, but I have not reached your divine plane of higher consciousness. Thus, those ethereal insights are lost on this tactile oriented player.

It's pretty good. The controls allow a lot of settings. It sounds, to me, like it's halfway between a fuzz face and a muff. The attack is a little soft.
Did you, by chance, try it like an OD, as per the MXR Dunlop video? If so, how was it in that role?

I tried in a store. I tried various settings. I am not super impressed, but did not dislike it either. It wasn't what I expected.

Yes. With its many controls, gain possibilities, and especially the tone knob, it's really good with clean amps. I tried it with Carr amps (Impala and Rambler).
