Are they any good? I had trouble finding any reviews using Google. It would be cool to price match this somewhere and get it for even less.

I have the bass chorus and I really like it. Built like a tank. Eats batteries though. Use a wall wart.

I've never seen these anywhere but AMS/Zzounds.
They've sold a ton of these various Castle Rock pedals for $20 and I doubt they've sold many for more than that.

I have one. In my opinion, it has too much gain and is a bit thin sounding. The box is heavy and super solid, but the knobs are cheap. The knobs stick a little which makes it difficult to change only one parameter when dealing with the stacked knobs. Not a waste of $20, but not my flavor either. On occasion, these pedals go even cheaper.

I got one of these the last time it was posted. As far as I can tell its a copy of the Boss Bass Overdrive. It is kinda noisy and the distortion is thin/harsh sounding. There is a blend, but if you use it you mostly end up with a layer of fizz on top of your clean tone.

Thanks for the feedback, gents. I'll pass.

A $20 pedal is a $20 pedal.....Can't expect steak for hamburger prices....you get a good burger though.....can always flip it or return it I guess.......

I've got one, it's worth $20 to me because it has a wet/dry blend. It's not worth a lot more to me because it's hard to get that knob in the exact spot I want. However, once I get it in that spot I love the tone. I'm going for a Chris Squier distorto/fuzz with clean bottom. I've gigged it several times now, it's solid but works best using an ac adapter.
