A solid TS808 clone, a kind of set it and forget it pedal. Some may fear that the plastic enclosure won't last. I think it can hold up for a few years and by then you should have figured out if you want to shell out the big bucks for a genuine tube screamer, so you can place a metric ton on the switch, rehouse this pedal in a generic metal case or just spend another 20 bucks on a replacement. Or you can use it as always on and clean up the sound by rolling the volume down on the guitar, in this case I think the pedal should last a long time if you don't throw it around. Perfect balance of price, purpose and tone.
Pedal is ok. Be careful it is not real tough for the money it is well worth it, but if you can afford a FAB I recommend it! It's probably cheaper too!
I got this pedal for practice two years back, it being only $20 I didn't expect much. It has become my main dirt pedal ever since, beating out an TS9 and boss Overdrive
A ridiculously cheap clone of a TS808 Tube Screamer in a plastic enclosure. And by "clone" I mean that it is so close to the original that in a blind test I was unable to tell any difference between this and an original TS808. No idea how durable the enclosure is, and I guess there are some who wouldn't want to be caught with a Behringer pedal on theitr boards, but if you always wanted to know what a Tube Screamer sounded like with your rig but didn't want to shell out a lot of money to find out, then this is your safest, and by far cheapest, bet.
I run this pedal in front of a distortion pedal I use for all my gain. It does it's job of juicing my distortion for a tighter sound. (Using the Amp as an EQ, distortion for my gain.) Watch Fluff's video on youtube for some sounds. He compares it to a Maxon OD808 and it fairs well considering the $30 dollar price tag. I'd buy it again.
