Mr Simon Dickenson18th Mar 2024

I purchased this as a back up for my amp. However it has been stolen by our other guitarist as the perfect practice tool while he is staying in hotels.

Mr Keith Grayson12th Mar 2024

This is a stunning pedal and exactly what I needed. I also feel I have barely scratched the surface of what it can do. Basically I wanted a durable pedal that would sound great plugged into my Steinberg audio interface and KRK monitor speakers. I wanted it to have an FX loop so I could demo new pedals and set up my pedal boards without the hassle of connecting and powering up my tube amps. With the audio interface, I don't even need the PC to be powered up. I just power up the audio interface and get sound through the monitor speakers, but now with pedals AND a variety of satisfying amp tones. I can alternate between a clean and lead tone easily with the 2 amp preset feature. Very happy with this.

Mr Mark Lovell31st Dec 2023

I have switched off the cab emulator and use this in front of a simple valve amp on a clean setting using a Celestion Creamback. I set red to a crunch or distorted tone and green to a clean tone. So it turns my one channel amp into a two channel amp. Works a treat.
