If the aim is to get the most horrific sounds possible, then I guess don't turn it down if it's a gift. I got this for free from a friend back in our days of playing in a black metal band together. It certainly worked okay in that application, but understand that this pedal is 110% treble, screeching feedback, and digital fizz. It sounds like shit and has zero practical use besides intentionally making bad noise. 5/5 stars for bad noise, 0/5 for usable tones
