Sounds amazing pluged alone into amp.....just amazing.....even better in chain!!! Using this with the AC15C1 as its a work horse and takes pedals well and easily can be pushed into hard OD at reasonable or obscene volumes. Testing so far...... Has more gain than either TS9 or OD808 but sounds best early in chain especially goosing other ODs. Later in chain still good but not so good. It sounds glorius earlier as it just like being hit by the guitars signal. Got it today and in the pedal chain its a bit different but frigging still awesome as hell and after trying it here and there for a few minutes feel the 3rd in chain is best for this addition. Doesnt like being played later in chain. Definately like to be early in the chain and I figure what better spot to put it than right after the Sugar Drive. Tried it late in the chain but I feel it like to be hit by the guitar early and it gives best sound this way. Also loves going into cooked drives so its perfect for this pedal to be before TS9 and OD808. Also can be clean boosted and such by the Sugar Drive so its in the happy inbetween spot were it can goose my other ODs, and be goosed it self by the Sugar Drive if wanted. Really great tones so far and cant wait to try out with the new Princeton either. Chain goes Guitar MXR CAE Wah>MXR Sugar Drive>BOSS SD1W>BOSS Ibanez TS9>Maxon OD808> Dunlop/MXR Fuzz Face Blue mini 108> BOSS CE2W> BOSS DM2W>Amp.
