This pedal is unique in my experience. It has the clean blend. It has an effects loop for another pedal which also allows you to set it pre or post effect. You can really dial in the tightness to exact specifications, allowing you to keep your dynamic response but still get plenty of grit. The grit sounds good. I was hoping this pedal would cop a Hiwatt tone, but I found another pedal that did it better. However, this pedal is the best OD/grit pedal I've ever played. I just can't use it so my loss is your gain. Asking $125.00 which includes shipping to continental U.S. address. I will post a pic or two later tonight.
