Analog distortion pedal.
Three controls: level, distortion and tone

UTILIZATION

Ultra easy to use and it sounds good with every setting.

SOUND QUALITY

High-quality sound and good reproduction of the tonal character of the guitar (I have a Gibson BFG). You can play all styles of music from blues to hard rock, but you'll hardly be able to play heavy metal because of the limited gain, which is a real pity. Given its versatility, it could become a must-have pedal if it had a wider gain range (it's the only reason I grade it 8 out 10). The tone knob is very effective.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for a very short time to replace my old DS1 (and there is no comparison whatsoever). I will keep it in spite of the limited gain because it's a real good effect pedal. Perhaps I will buy a more transparent booster and plug it just before this pedal.
The value for money is very good when it comes to the sound. I already tried plenty of pedals of all makes (Maxon, Boss, Proco, Ehx....) and I like this best.
