This is probably one of the best overdrive pedal ever (in my opinion, only the TS-808, its predecessor, is better). If you are a jazz, rock or blues player, I really recommend it.
Model Year: 1997
Price: $100.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Timbres Instrumentos Musicais
A simple, but great sounding, overdrive pedal. Features drive level, tone and output level knobs. Powered by a 9V battery or AC adapter.
Sound Quality:
I have two uses for this pedal: overdrive and boost. As a drive, it sounds great, delivering that classical SRV tone or a vintage-style rock drive. As a boost, it works a lot better than the DS-1 (the other pedal I tried for this function). Even with the extra saturation, the sound is still very clear. This unit sounds a lot better when you play a Strat through a Fender amp.
Ease of Use:
Just 3 knobs, so it's imple enough. You won't have too much trouble finding your tone with this one.
It has a solid building but the switch could be a little more precise (like the BOSS ones). Many famous guitarists use this pedal in their world tours, so it's very reliable.
