This pedal took me a while to dial in, and it doesn't play well with other pedals. I needed a buffer before and after the Huckleberry, however, some effects have built-in buffers. I usually have my "Juice" set around 3 o'clock, any higher and it starts squealing. Once dialed in this thing stacked VERY well with an OCD (V7). In short, spend lots of time playing with all the controls and where it sits in the signal chain before deciding to keep it.
