I bought this pedal last night. I plan on taking it back. It is very well constructed. Sucks no tone at all. And is not "noisy" per say. It really does not suck tone. In fact it may even add a little bit. I had all the knobs down and clicked it on and it added just a little gain. I really could find no usable sounds though. It was either barely doing anything at all or sounded like a listening to a busted speaker through metal trashcan. The distinctive flanger jet engine woosh was really there and made most of the sounds I could get almost unusable. The construction is top notch and seems like an awesome pedal. For 39 bucks its not a bad deal. I just don't like the sound of it at all. Not my cup of tea.
