    Ease of Use
    A 2-years old kid could use this pedal...
    The top of the pedal features :
    <ul>
    <li>a small led which indicated if the pedal is on/off. </li>
    <li>a big on/off switch</li>
    <li>a small 3-way switch, which allows you to choose
    the type of overdrive. You can choose between :
    <ul>
    <li>Flat</li>
    <li>Standard</li>
    <li>Tubesimulator</li>
    </ul>
    </li>
    <li>a knob which controls the amount of overdrive</li>
    <li>a know which controls the output gain</li>
    </ul>

    The left side of the pedal has a small switch that
    selects either passive- or active input.

    Sound Quality
    Judge for yourself ( never mind the crappy bassplayer * :rolleyes: )

    Flat mode, this mode gives a fuzz-like sound if the gain it set high, i'd reccomend low-gain settings for this mode.

    Standard mode, this mode bypasses the low-end, and sounds great with a pick.

    Tumesimulator mode, this mode enables a second tubesimulator, which makes the sound a little warmer.. It makes the bass sound a little vintage if you put the gain at medium.

    Reliability
    Steel housing, solid buttons.. the proof of quality :D

    Conclusion
    It rocks.. imho 100 % worth it's price ( which is rather high, tho.. )

    * = very little sleep last night
