    Have you read the reviews in the thread stickied at the top of the forum?

    The fulltone is a good choice for what you seek to do, but I have no idea if you'll like it or not.

    Have you searched for the word fulltone in this forum? There are *hundreds* of prior discussion threads on this pedal. If suggesting you use the readily available features of the forum to help yourself is flaming, then I'll be sodding off now.

    haha, thanks man...;)
    the only downside is that i live in norway..and the only pedals they have in the stores around here is Boss, EBS, Digitech and Electro-Harmonix.... i need to trust the words of other persons on higher quality stuff...

    The only thing that holds me of the EBS one is the fact that it have no tone control.... i see that as a minus... other than that i liked its sound...
