Full Review

This pedal might normally go in the "Toy/Limited Use" category of pedals because I don't often find a use for it in the bar band setting. However, when I'm doing free improv or practicing alone it is a wonderfuly simple and straightforward way to get a drone going or just build a wall of texture. The timing of kicking it on can take a little getting used to and sometimes the tracking comes out a little squirrely. But it very elegantly accomplishes it's goal. It's small size ensures that I won't really need to getThis is the only EHX pedal left on my main board after trying out various other EHX pedals over the years.
