I'm not really the pedal type. I've been playing 15 years and I've got a looper, a fuzz, and now this tube overdrive from Bryan Wallis at Saturnworks. and I've bought all 3 in the last year! Just got this and I've barely had time to even plug it in, but I've been able to play in it a little. So far I love it. I can get some really good distortion while still getting some nice clarity. it has two channels, the right side is a clean transistor boost, and the left is the tube driven. The three black knobs are volume, tone and gain, and the white knob is gain for the transistor side. So it's pretty straight forward even for a tube novice. I don't know what else to say. It looks cool, it is cool. it was a long wait, but overall I say it was worth it!
