This is an interesting pedal. It sounds good, but it doesn't. What I mean is it sounds like a good distortion, almost perfect, but thats the problem - its missing something organic about it in how it sounds. Because it sounds like a distortion that doesn't sound like other distortions, its kinda like turning the wheel to the right and the car starts to move left - things are happening but not at all how you would expect or how you are so accustomed to. At first glance, it might be better suited to high-gain metal or more modern music - could easily see it coping Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters but maybe not Pearl Jam, whose sound is more organic in a sense, at least how I think about it as I write this. Metal all day long I suppose. I like the blues and organic pedals. My favorite is probably the Marshall Guv'nor. I am not a fan in any way of digitally sounding pedals, but there is something about this pedal I like...and I don't. Perhaps it's the musical equivalent of eating a sour patch kid. You think why did I do that and then you want another. This pedal might be like that. I generally don't even like Boss overdrives, although I find myself now with 3 presently on my board: SD-1w, SD-2, and now the DA-2, which for the moment is doing Marshall GV-2 duty. They are not alike but the DA-2 has a nice whoomp to it that you get from a Marshall stack. So we will see how this goes - not sure if it will stay or if it will go, but since I first heard one back in 2015, I have wanted to get one and try it.
