I got this pedal for 8$ and its sound awesome for this price. Wide range of tones and basic EQ on board, two outputs (amp and mixer), built like a small tank. I would not take it on gig or studio since its just the entry level distortion pedal but I believe Hot Head is great think for home practice. You can't go wrong with this orange hottie!
I got this as a gift for my 30th birthday from Maks, the frontman of Endorfin. It is a brutal pedal, it was used as a "noise" pedal, combining with other two distortion pedals in the board it really made hell on live shows. But on its own, the tone was not so good and warm as Jackhammer`s so I ditched it out eventually from the pedalboard. It was used on second part of Sunce Od Krvi song, and also on Inkvizitor and parts of Most Je Presao Reku.
