    I bought this recently from someone who brought it from Germany; so AFAIK, this is actually the only one in the US at the moment. Lehle/RMI is known for their great quality and unique approach to gear, and this pedal is no exception. This is a bit more than an overdrive, and actually starts from about medium gain to melt-your-face distortion; and this is why I have to let it go. Though I love RMI stuff (I owned an IQ DI for years, and still own a Sonic Spark), this guy just has way too much gain for my taste and use at church even at the lowest setting. It only has a few minutes of use on my end (previous owner never used it because it didn't fit his mini board), and comes with box and all papers, etc.

    Here is a translated, 5-star review by Bonedo. It sounds just like the recordings there: mean, nasty, and slightly course-textured.

    @handofseven and I tried this pedal at NAMM. It is a killer dirt box.
    Ricky Caboverde and handofseven like this.
