    Bought one of these last week and been messing around with it. I've owned a EBS Multidrive and a Tubeworks Blue Tube 903, both of which are very good overdrive pedals. This time around I was looking for a pedal which enables you to keep your "clean sound" intact and adds/blends the overdrive over your clean signal. Ofcourse, you can also have your entire signal overdriven with out your clean signal coming through if you want. I was also looking for a pedal which would do its job without any loss of bottom. This is it.

    The four controls are effective and very intuitive.
    gain: adds overdrive,
    tone: adjust tone of overdrive,
    blend: blends clean signal with overdriven signal
    level: adjusts overall volume of the signal which is being sent to the amp.

    It's no $60 pedal though. With an MSRP of $179 and a street price in the $120s, it's not cheap.

    The pedal appears to be constructed well and very durable. All in all this pedal is a good value.

    Yeah, I like it a lot. It definitely has that Tubescreamer midrange hump, but it's cool.
