Great pedal for heavy metal, and rhythm guitar. It can get many sounds ranging from Satriani (Surfin' with the Alien) to Pantera, Megadeth, and underground metal, such as In Flames, or a similar band.
If you're expecting a good sound for playing solos....F'getabout! But, is it worth the $67-70 bucks??? I think so. Especially if you're looking for something like a Metal Zone Pedal, but want to save a few bucks. This sucker will fit the bill while producing some awesome nitro-distortion!
Model Year: 2002
Price: $69.00 (new)

Steel construction, 5-6 Chicken-Head shaped knobs, 9V Batt powered OR AC Adapter (not included)
Wish it sounded better for playing leads/solos.
Probably going to sound different with everyone's rig. I currently use Laney GH50L head, Marshall 4x12, American Deluxe Strats, Kramer Baretta (1980's). Sounds better with Humbucker pickups.
Actually one of the better distortion pedals I've played. Even has it's own "SCOOP" pot. Can either add or "scoop" out the mids, producing some serious chunk!
Not very noisy at all.
I ONLY give it a "4" rating because of the fact that it's much better for rhythm, not lead playing. BUT, DEFINETELY WORTH $68.00!
Great for heavy metal.
Easy! It's a distortion pedal????
However, since this pedal has 5-6 knobs, it may take a few minutes to initially get a sound you're happy with. But, like anything else, you need to fiddle around with the thing!
