I just picked one up yesterday, used. I really like the tone. It gives a nice fuzzy warmth to my sound, and although I don't use the lower settings (I'm a balls to the wall kinda guy with distortions) it really stands out. I swapped the tube to a 60's Raytheon long black plate, which sounds a little smoother than the factory JJ, but the JJ is not harsh by any means. The raytheon takes a boost in front of it better than the JJ. My LPB-2 really makes this thing sing. My only complaint is that the blend control is very, very touchy with a very small range where the clean starts to come in. I may end up changing the pot value for that control. Just my two cents. I know a lot of people have the $300 boutique pedals and I know they sound amazing. I think though that this little gem will get you really close for a lot less money for those of us on a budget. I hope to make a video demo soon and post. Just need a half hour to myself lol.
