My wife picked this up for me for $25 from a local music store. I spent an our playing it with the controls all set at noon. I tried it with my Gibby LP Classic (with Duncan Phat Cat 90's), My '62 Vintage RI Strat, and my Peavey HP Special CT, and all I can say is WOW. I never moved the knobs, not once! It just sounds soooo good. It's one of those pedals that just makes you want to play your guitar. The drive (which I only had turned half way up) is very crisp and defined but produces lots of sustain at the same time. I really liked the tonal impact it had on each guitars tone as well. I set it at unity gain and while it added some dirt to my signal, it also added it's own mojo as well. VERY cool pedal from a very cool wife- who had a baby less than a week ago on top of everything else. Maybe I'm amazed...!
