5 from 5 Two thumbs up

Build is not too difficult, parts count is not too high. The included jacks were too big, but I had some smaller ones at home so I used them instead (the enclosure came pre-drilled from Musikding and the holes for the jacks were on top, next to the DC jack). Also instead of 100k resistors 130k resistors were included, but I bought the right ones in a shop in the city.

As for the effect itself its great, I love it. Its a high gain pedal and sounds gorgeous into the front of a clean amp. Big gain range from crunchy to all out mayhem. When you increase the gain then theres a bit of noise, but for a distortion pedal its actually very low. Its not even worth mentioning, really.

Also I think its impressive because it achieves all this without relying on any mojo components. No hard-to-find special transistors or biasing needed. Just some diodes, op-amps, caps and resistors.

I feel this was money well spent. Highly recommended.
