This is the one pedal that I almost never turn off. It is the quintessential overdrive pedal for anyone who desires to add that extra tube-like warmth and punch to whatever setup they're using. I personally use it as a semi-clean boost in front of a high-gain tube amp, which is one of the places where it shines the most. With the volume cranked, the tone at noon, and the gain at 0-25%, the low end is tamed and the high mids are boosted in just the right way to tighten up my sound. Chords burn and sizzle with an aggression and sustain that was otherwise unachievable previously. Just try one. You won't be disappointed.
