knowing Krank, its probaly overrated, overpriced and total shit. But I'm not one to judge , i suggest forgeting the pedal and work on replacing that turd that marshall calls and amp.

haha thanks for the advice, but since i don;t have the money to change my amp completely i use 1 or 2 pedals. Besides all i udse the amp for is as a speaker, I know the distortion is hit, which is why I use a pedal

I'm sure if you sell your amp and MT-2 you can afford a decent amp

Beings as it looks like im the only one here to have actually tried it, ill put in some info.

It is the best distortion pedel ive ever used.

Its very smooth and full. My amps distortion is still much better, but this thing beats the pants off of the little stomp boxes ive used.

finally some proper info, thanks fluffy. as I said earlier all I use my amp for really is a decent speaker, so any improvement on my current tone would be good. Would you say that it's worth the cost of it?

I've got one and I don't really like it. I find Line 6 Uber Metal properly EQ'd on the pulverize setting has a much bigger tone.

Gibson Gothic Flying V

Squier 10w amp
