Sound — 8
I use a BC Rich Warlock, and a Peavey Express 112, 65 Watt. The pedal adds a lot of hum if you turn the distortion above about 3 o'clock, which that is enough distortion anyways, after that it gets pretty muddy. With this pedal you can get an Overdrive sound by turning the distortion all the way down, or a nice distorted tone by turning it up. It's not my favorite distortion, but when I first started it suited my needs just fine, but now, it's not enough, it sounds kinda ethereal to me now.

Overall Impression — 9
This pedal is great for beginners if you have the cash to dish out. I got mine on eBay really cheap, it was my first pedal and I am pleased with it, I still play around the house and practice with it, it's still probably my most used pedal, although I am looking to replace it with a more versatile distortion pedal. If it were lost or stolen I would most definitely buy another one.

Who can't depend on Boss? It's lightweight and strong, I would use this on a gig any day and even without a backup. I've had it for the better part of a year with no wear and tear to show.

This pedal is pretty straight forward, the knobs are labeled with the right text, unlike a lot of other pedals that disguise the name, like the Rocktron Silver Dragon pedal. It did come with a manual but I haven't looked through it. I didn't need to, it's really easy to use. The only thing that took me a while to understand was the mid freq. knob.
