    Hopefully it's not as bad in person as the clips make it out to be. Sounds like ass.

    love the tiny footprint.
    Possibly that pedal sounds good, but I can't tell from those clips :(

    Nah, I'm more interested in finding good tones. Those clips don't represent anything close to good tones IMO.

    I thought you were being harsh at first. Then I listened to the clips. I now agree with you completely. Horrible sounding.

    cool form factor and design, clips sounded a bit thin and gritty for my taste. some clips of pedals i love have sounded similar though, so i'll withhold judgment...

    I don't trust miniaturized circuitry for producing soulful guitar tone.

    Well you have to consider the dry signal -

    http://www.mythfx.com/BypassBoost-SingleCoilBridge.mp3

    That's the example with a dry signal, then the clean boost. Building on top of that is going to sound kinda harsh, so maybe this pedal with a thicker chewier amp/guitar combo might help.

    Yeah, the clean tone is nothing to write home about.
