    Lots of heavy sounds, but they can be pretty noisy.

    thank you.
    so you've used it, yes. Will a noise gate clean that up or is the fx nasty noise digital icky?

    I love mine. I keep it around 7 to 9 oclock on the drive and it cleans uo nice with rhe guitar volume.

    I had one when they first arrived on scene and I liked it. At least when keeping the drive down low and the level up. I then sold it and tried a few more expensive pedals such as an OCD, a modded TS9 and a Lovepedal plexi 800. Still have the Lovepedal.

    Then I bought another power stack on a whim because it was a good deal. The second time around it sounded thin and noisy. Btw a used OCD isn't that much more. I'd go that route.

    I also had the Boss combo drive. I thought that pedal was fatter and more versatile than the power stack. But still not as solid as the other pedals I mentioned above.

    I had one for a while. I liked it but at higher gain settings it had that cocked wah thing that I couldn’t dial out.

    me and my bud tried this in a guitar store and though it really sounded good, the noise really put us off and almost unusable.

    Maybe this pedal will benefit if it has Noise Gate in a loop so it will not affect the signal too much.
