Cool review JVM smile.gif
Sounds like something i could use.So does it increase the volume of your sound when you kick it in or just give a stronger signal??Like for example could you be playing very loud on a clean setting then kick it in to give a slight overdrive blues sound??Just wondering

Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Definitely. It does increase the volume - but only as much as you let it. You can play clean and set the boost to say 8 o'clock and maybe not notice much but a bit of a fattening up of your sound - it'll be louder. Push it to 10 or 12 and it'll overdrive your clean tone perfect for blues (of course these settings vary amp to amp), or ride it all the way up and you may well find yourself in some real rock and roll territory, zeppelin style.

And if you play loud alot this pedal would definatly be a must have for the price.

Just want to make it clear that this isn't a "distortion pedal" per se, I've used distortions before and this is a little different. It doesn't really affect your tone at all, it just pushes you into a natural sounding saturation earlier, it will sound different amp to amp. Also that I've dealt with muddy tones before, and this one is quite clear and nice sounding. It may not be your kind of distortion (I don't have a metal setup - yet, so I can't confirm how well this works with a metal kind of sound, but I get the impression it would sound great for some kind of shred lead too.) but if it is, you'll like it.

I've added some soundclips to the main review smile.gif Don't know why I've been holding off on that - I guess this is really the only piece of gear I have that I can effectively use with the solid state toneport and still have a good sounding outcome. Now that I have amp mic'ing capability, I'll probably do a few more reviews of other stuff I have.

Ooh and by the way, I actually used this thing as a hammer on a couple nails earlier today, not a scratch or dent on it.

I just wanted to add for anyone wondering, it sounds great like the EHX website quote says, when put in front of other pedals too. Then again my main distortion pedal is the Metal Muff (pretty sure there was already a review on that but I may add another) which is another EHX product. But I've tried it in front of a Voodoo Lab sparkle drive and an Option 5 destination rotation (which emulates a leslie speaker, but also has a drive option on it).
