I use this pedal for just about anything I want to play. Stacked after a Pro Red Dirt you get a great tone with tons of sustain. RNR, Rock, Blues, Pop - this pedal has it going on. To a degree, this pedal is similar to the Marvel Drive by RambleFX. They are in the ballpark but different. My preference is to use the 1962 for lead and the Marvel for rhythm.
