Closest StoreSudbury, Ontario
I needed an acoustic pre-amp to enhance the plugged-in personality of my dreadnought. This simple pedal does it very well. Not a gimmick pedal, it is a valuable tool. Basically, you are controlling reverb and tone with the left and right knobs. Subtle changes with lots of range to go deep if you need to. If you are shopping this idea, and you really should, be sure to try this puppy out. After Youtubing a few choices this was the one for me and it did not disappoint.
