I play a mix of country, blues, rock, some metal, and a little funk with it. I really love the way this pedal responds to my acoustic as well.
This is a distortion pedal and the controls are pretty basic: Volume, Tone and Distortion and also a 3 way voice switch. It's extremely easy to get a good sound out of this pedal and it was designed to use on the clean channel of an amp. This is the best distortion pedal I have tried in my 24 years of playing metal and I have tried ALOT of them.
