Very nice pedal. A different beast from my Green Russian clone, but in a good way. Like a Green Russian, It will cut in a live situation better than a Triangle, a Ram's Head or a standard RI Muff (which are all very mid-scooped). The tone bypass voicing is also a nice feature. It gives you a more "even" sound, with less bass/treble, and more mid-frequencies, with no dramatic volume increase. And while it may be less "articulate" than a Green Russian, it definetely has more gain on tap. Not subtle at all, but nobody wants subtlety from a BMP anyway.
