I've had this pedal for about a month now. So far, it is doing a pretty good job as a "transparent" OD. The jury is still out on this pedal for me, but so far, I am not complaining about it. The treble and bass controls are not flat at the 12 o'clock position, but with a little finagling the unity positions can be found (mine are 1 o'clock for treble, just under 3 o'clock for bass).
I bought this because it was cheap as dirt and very orange.
It's got a lot of volume on tap. Unity is at 9 o'clock.
I tried using it a few times, but it just doesn't ring my bell. It doesn't have any magic or inspiration for me. It has a lot of noise though!
The only reason to buy this is because it's cheap (and orange!) and you are curious. I can't imagine anyone with a budget or ears would aim for this intentionally.
A nice toy on a budget, but nothing you would choose if you had options.
I wanted a budget but effective transparent OD and after seeing the reviews of this £20 was a good investment. It's a direct Copy of an Xotic BB Preamp. And not a bad one at all
