I've heard good things about it, meant to be pretty versatile

EDIT: and for £15 then you can't go wrong

it's a good price but to be honest, why settle for second best, it's like you wouldn't buy some cheapo product just because it's a good price, i'd rather save up and buy something that was pretty much taylored to my needs.

i agree with 3nemy. you really need somthing thats going to help YOU. not your wallet. if it's want you want and need, than get it. but i dont know what you need, so i cant answer that for you.

If you like it, yes, if not, well, I'd still buy it anyway and then put it on e-bay and make a bit of cash.

we don't know if it would suit you.
it won't get you even close to Santana tone for example.

I play classic rock and blues.

It's a rather versatile pedal. It probably won't do blues very well (in all the time I've owned mine, I've never really tried 0.o) but it can get good rock sounds. And for £15 it's a bargain, considering I paid double that for mine.

stop looking at distortion then.
look at overdrive pedals.

if you don't know the difference:
Overdrive-
Overdrive is often confused with distortion due to a similar "kind" of sound.. but overdrive re-creates the natural warm sound of a vintage tube amp that is being "overdriven" or is breaking up. when a tube amps volume is pushed beyond its capacity, they "break up" and begin to sound crunchy and distorted, the resulting sound is overdrive.

o styles
- Blues, Blues Rock, Fusion, Classic Rock

Distortion -
Distortion is what makes metal, rock, punk, grunge, etc... sound the way it does. you know what i mean, the crunchy riffs the screeming pinch harmonics and solos , that dirty ass bone crunching sound of death and pain marching across the land AAAARRRGGHHHH!!! that my friend, is distortion. Distortion is, sound wise anyways, a very extreme version of overdrive. That?s why a lot people think they're hearing distortion when they hear overdrive.>/br> Distortion cuts off the extreme high and low frequencies. In other words, it eliminates the highest highs and lowest lows, creating a distortion effect. distortion ranges from mild to ball shattering in intensity and thickness.

o styles
- Punk, Grunge, Heavy Metal, Death Metal and all other forms of metal you can think of

to hook it up ?
if you'll only use one pedal, you'll need two cables.

Well, if its only £15, you can sell it for the same price if you don't like it (or give it to a friend )
#14
Save up a little more and look at a Tubescreamer and others. That Boss pedal doesn't sound good for our genres (classic rock/blues.)
#16
because it's not as good

look into these:
-digitech bad monkey (tubescreamer clone on a budget)
-BYOC screamer (just as good if not better than an ibanez TS808, which is considered one of the best tubescreamers)
-maxon OD808/9

Exactly.

Of course, personally I'd recommend the Maxon OD808 over any of the Ibanez models, but that's just me... You should try them all out and see which one you prefer

what's 15 euros? something like $25 in US currency? that doesn't sound like a bad deal, even if you don't like it you could probably turn a profit on it sometime.
