This is actually the second time I’ve bought this pedal. I absolutely had to have another for my big board. I usually run clean and use pedals but even through the dirty channel of an amp you cannot go wrong with this pedal. An overdrive with an independent boost for $43? Absolutely. I’ve used T-Rex, Fulltone, Lovepedal and everything boutique but this beats them all. If I could only have one pedal this would be it. Worth checking out if you need a boost or extra grit. Cheers.
