Heavy, Heavy, Heavy.

Advantages: Indestructible, Fairly Priced.
Disadvantages: The tone feels a little too messy at times.

This was one of the best investments I ever made. The pedal is affordable and it is heavy. The controls work very well and I was surprised at the variety in tone I could get. The quality is more than I would expect for the price tag. This thing is unbreak ...

Digitech Hardwire SC2 Valve Distortion. A genuine good thing.

Truely awsome and underated Overdrive pedal

Advantages: Analog overdrive circuitry, vintage overdrive tone, great as a channel booster
Disadvantages: Battery life isn't great

About two years ago, when I went and bought a new guitar amplifier (Laney TF200-II), I thought "Great, I'm probably going to have enough gain and tone to suit my needs". It did have great tone, but sadly not enough gain for me. So I began to use my Li ...
