A great pedal for both sides of the fence, the Caroline Wave Cannon Mk1 was the first pedal I bought without trying it out. Having watched as many videos as there are for it online, I was over the moon when it turned up and did exactly what I wanted. The drive is nice and cutting, and the shape knob lets you go from a tight OCD-ish drive to a woolier, more open, tightened Rat. Having the feedback loop side (Chaos mode) is great for when you're doing pop punk one night and musique concrete the next, and responds to pickup and volume changes well, doing all sorts of pitch drops and silliness. Great.
