This pedal has a very distinct tonal character. Don’t let the three band EQ fool you, you can use it to tweak the character but not make it sound fundamentally different. In that regard, I don’t view it as one of those highly versatile pedals that you can put in front of any amp, turn a few knobs, and it sounds decent. The trade off however, is that when you get it in front of the right amp, it’s absolute magic! It loved a fender super reverb, and in front of a marshall jcm-like amp clone it was nothing short of amazing. Seriously, from a crunchy overdrive to all out beast mode, in the right context you’d be hard-pressed to make it sound bad. Highly recommended!
PCB is very high quality, a really nice product.
However, there are a couple of issues…
1. The drill guide has the volume and gain controls labeled wrong! On the guide they are listed as being in the standard layout with volume on the left, and gain on the right, but this is not how it is setup on the pcb. Because of this, I accidentally labeled mine wrong, which I’m pretty peeved about. So builders take note, in my photos the volume and gain pots are labeled incorrectly. Don’t make the same mistake!
2. Resistor R11 is listed as R13 on the PCB.
