I currently use a maxon od808, so that's my point of reference. I tend to keep it with drive at 9:00 and volume at 3:00 for lighter overdrive sounds or I use it in front of my RAT as a boost. Everything sounds the same to me on youtube, and I've read how the archer is a kon type pedal. I've never played a klon so I'll assume its a good klon type pedal. I'm more curious as to how it compares to an od808. So for anyone whose had experiences with the Archer and an OD808 (or even a tube screamer and klon) how do they differ. Bonus points for anyone who's used one to boost a rat.
