I've had a lot of fun during this past week goofing around with this fuzz at home, quietly. I think I've enjoyed it more than any other fuzz I've had, and it's convinced me that I was on the wrong track trying only Fuzz Face-type pedals. Tonight I took it to a gig, and had a great time. I used it with both guitar and lap steel, and semi-randomly inserted it to see what I could do. Great sound, great improvement in sustain at unity volume, and wonderful semi-clean tone when the instrument's volume was dialed back. Easy to control, lots of great tones. I'm looking forward to exploring further. Sometime in the next couple of days, I'm going to get my Strymon Lex. I'm really excited about that!
