it's a great pedal. It's not only great for pedal, but in conjunction with other tone shaping pedals like eq, compression etc. it shines through brilliantly. rest assured, the solo will always come out on top. I experimented on it a bit to see if I can get a big distortion wall of sound, somewhat like Linkin Park had in Hybrid Theory and Meteora, I got pretty close. Very solid pedal. The price isn't too low. But trust me, this is a must have in your pedal arsenal specially if you are a music producer!
