Sound — 10
For me this is an easy pedal to get a good crunch from. I'm playing through a no name amp, I'm saving up for a Peavey, and a Epiphone Les Paul Speacial II. It can be overwhelming if you don't have the right set ups, but after tinkering with it for maybe 10 minutes to an hour depending on how exact you are you can get great tones.
Overall Impression — 10
I'm in a Nirvana tribute band, but I'm also just in a Rock/Metal band and this works well for both groups. If I lost it or something happened I would replace it immediatley, its the only overdrive/distortion on my board and it probobly will be the only one for a long time.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I used this at a gig without a back up, and at the party things were out of hand and it managed to withstand many drunk people and at one point being thrown across the room, so I would give this a 10. If you're looking for a hard crunch with a pedal that can take a crunch, this is for you.
Ease of Use — 9
I've had the pedal for a year now, and I thought that it was easy to set up from the box...well it was more of a bag because I bought it used. It comes with a manual to help you get started with your tone and all, but I just threw it away, I'm not a huge fan of the Melvins and their sound isn't that great to me. It took about 15 minutes to rig it to what was perfect for me when I got it.
