I should add that the Fat boost mode Rules for Bigness. Great how it has a narrow mid boost mode and a big warm fat boost mode too. Ears and brains.
Fat boost mode? Isn't there just normal, bright, and mid boost modes?
Serial # 2:
It arrived already.
WOW. It is great as a clean boost, a bigger-er boost, a voiced boost into amp or OD's (Minstrel!), and as a standalone dynamic dirty clean (single coil)-light crunch (humbucker) pedal. A huge range of tones with gain and volume working together at various settings. 3 modes with a simple tone control works brilliantly. Treble and mid boost modes are musical and subtle. I'm half tempted to have two of them. Better than a Klon (as in gain is more useful and it's still big sounding). Instant classic. DEEPLY musical. No "pedal" sound.
It' s also smaller than I had feared, very manageable. And the wall wart is quite small. AND it's a nice subtle beige color and not a bright white as I had feared.
Total win! Get one!
