    Yes and yes (bearing in mind that I bought mine second hand). It's nice on its own and plays well with others. I particularly like it stacked in front of an MXR FET Driver.

    I had one and couldn't get rid of it quick enough. Tones were there, but at a HIGH NOISE cost that I couldn't dial out. Made it unusable for me. Others might have had better luck.

    I have one that I picked up second hand, and it is a great pedal. I think the high noise issue varies from pedal to pedal. I tried a Pinnacle first, which was very very noisy, so I got rid of that. I have no noise issues with my Sovereign, amp is a Vintage Sound 'Vintage 20'. I also have a Paisley Drive that I also like quite a bit.

    No noise issues with mine either. Find it to have a huge range and versatility. I don't play metal but - if I did, with the boost on and the mids-scooped, I could fake it in a pinch.

    There's better out there, with higher versatility. There was a warbly bottom end on mine, with scratchy highs.
