One trick pony, but what a great trick!

I bought this when I got my valve head, as I needed something to give me a touch more boost and overdrive, and to push the gain a touch more. The features are basic but effective, and it does its job really well. It's great for giving a dirty sound that little extra push over the edge. However, this isn't really a distortion in itself, it works really well in conjunction with something else as the main source of your distortion, but on its own it is a little weedy. Having said all that, it is a vital component of my pedalboard, and it does its one little job better than anything else.
