The honeymoon has begun. Used it at a rehearsal the other night. When I tried it out at the store, I bought it because it was "close" to being what I wanted, and the price was definitely right. I figured with my amps, and some more time spent with the knobs, I could get it where I wanted it. First impressions with a real amp and my own guitars- Smooth, very warm, but still capable of superb clarity with the separate, active, bass and treble controls. More gain and slightly more volume than a TS. I'll have to gig it a few times to really get a real-world opinion on it, but so far, to say I'm impressed would be an understatement. These things are on clearance at GC for $49. If you like good ODs for cheap, go pick one up. It's a really fun little unit, and at this price, really doesn't have any competition.
