I bought one for one day in the late 70s. Got it from a guy at high school, brought it home & it sounded awful. Called him up & he told me it needed a new battery. Popped a new one in and it still sounded awful. Instead of giving him $25 the next day I gave him back the pedal. He was not happy.
This was supposed to be the holy grail of distortion pedals back then. Turned me off of them for decades.
