I've played on several distortion pedals. This one ranks up there as probably one of the worse pedals I've ever played and heard. If you're serious about getting a good distortion sound, STAY AWAY FROM THE GRUNGE! I highly recomend researching distortions that come in the amps. Those usually are clearner distortions, and much better on the ears. However if you want to get a distortion that just sounds messy, this pedal is for you. Grunge is an understatement-it should be labeled muddy or sloppy. If you don't believe me, please try it out in the store before you spend your well earned cash.
Model Year: 1998
Price: $40.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Local Dealer
Features:
It has four dials, and a big foot pedal/switch at the bottom. The battery seems to last a pretty long time. It can be AC powered which I recomend. I've seen better marked pedals though.
Sound Quality:
This is a really tin sounding distortion. My friends and I call it paper distortion. You don't know what chord you're playing because no matter what level it's set on, it all sounds the same.
Ease of Use:
Super easy to use. You'd have to be incredibly stupid if this pedal confuses you.
Durability:
I could kill someone with this and it'd still perform without any flaws. In fact my friend bought one and we disected it, and put it back together randomly and it still sounded like we didn't touch it.
