I bought this because I had a very noisy fuzz pedal (I ended up getting rid of) that needed some quieting down. This was only $37 and does a very nice job at reducing excess feedback before and after you play a note or chord. I like the designed and it's simple to use. Has two options for how hard/soft you want the cutaway to be. I think that sometimes the sound leaves to abruptly and its not smooth but hey I'm still playing around with it so maybe it's just me. Definitely a good for the price pedal though!
