Great boost, not really for shredding. More for Redhouse style blues. Plugged it in on my pedal board and to my disappointment it has a hum. Tried the battery only and voila, no xtra noise. My buds say I need the Dan Electro PS.

First off it needs to be said that I am playing Rockabilly/Blues/Rock, not metal so this is no screaming High Gain Distortion pedal. Or is it? Solid construction, amazing tones, dip switches to do a little modding of the sound and well under $100. This is absolutely a guitarists secret weapon. LOVE THIS PEDAL!

Great pedal. Turn gain down volume up gives you nice slight over driven tone .Want a more over driven sound .Just turn the gain up. One thing I do not like is the split bass/ treble knob.Other than that it is worth the money.

i've used a lot of distortion pedals... floor pods, screamers, jeckyll & hydes, boss,... the gamut... this little pedal is fantastic. my one complaint is that the pots are a little too smooth and can get moved around during a gig (especially the volume), but this highly inexpensive unit is comparable to the best of them. LOVE it.

This is a pedal which sounds very close to the Timmy O.D. pedal for a fraction of the cost! It has nearly the same circuitry and will provide many guitarists with a low-cost option!
