I use it as my monitor. The Simplifier is a zero watt amp in a box. Stereo XLR outs as well as stereo or mono 1/4” outs. I run the stereo XLR’s DI to FOH, and mono 1/4” to the powered monitor. Very useable versatile setup.
For those who know about this pedal, well, you know.
Maybe one of the best overdrive pedals out there... at last of all the ones I have tried.
This thing changed the way I approach the drive section on my pedalboard.
The way I used my drive section prior to this purchase was as follows:
I own a 60th Ann’y. It has the American Vintage pickups which sound as Tele as Tele gets to me. I swapped out the plate bridge for an American Professional bridge (perfect fit, just needed to drill a couple holes but matched up perfectly to existing holes). Really fantastic guitar with some nice...

I installed them on both my LP Melody Maker and my J15. No regrets whatsoever for spending a few more bucks than the average tuner.
If you put a boost pedal in front of a drive/gain (overdrive or distortion) pedal, it will yield… more gain, not more volume. Same happens if you boost the front of an amplifier. In order to get a volume boost, place the boost after the drive pedal, or in the effects loop of an amp.
