To complete the pedal is sturdy and heavy (about 500g), a very good point.
The food is taken from the channel distortion of their head amp AG-500.


Very easy to use, the manual is just a piece of paper with the spec. And some explanation.

The saturation potentiometer has no linear travel is convenient for assaying "growl / crunch" then from 12pm early saturation begins with small steps tight to continue aggression to limit , it does not turn into Fuzz it stays in aggressive distortion cutting off an arm!
(To turn it into a fuzz just put the "tone" of a passive bass eg Precision bass on mini. This is not bad but I think it's still a backup solution with respect to a true fuzz. )

Potentiometers presence (acute) and contour (medium) are very effective especially presence, I put very little!
To "level" it is a long push, I put it at the last "L" to stay equal with light volume of the amp, it all depends how you play basic volume on your amp ... recess.


My setup: Gallien Krueger MB Fusion cab. Markbass traveler 121h, Squier Precision Bass Matt Freeman, aguilar agro ;) boss odb-3.

The first point is most striking, no loss of bass! Great!
Secondly, a great natural grain scratching well low saturation to go farther nicely dirty, all with heat.
Third, I think the grain is kept low and thoroughly mixed with the distortion ... (Aguilar to think that probably put a "clean" button was useless.)

A pick or fingers, this distortion is ecstasy, frankly .... it performs well in the 2 types of game, slap is also excellent, although I am not a worshiper of slap.
Is obtained growl enough to finger snapping and a great pick attack due to the presence, really enjoyable, careful not to abuse it!

I can also speak of the channel B loaded lamps gain 14h my GK Mbfusion ... with the aguilar is the FOOT!


I possess for 1 month.
For me it completely buries the ODB-3 boss, synthetic and strident, with its wet / dry unconvincing (a kind of clean), unless I enjoy the change for fun.

What I like most: it easier to growler, grain super low mixed well and kept low frequency intact, as a super grain of the large plaster on a wall!

What I like least: mandatory screwdriver to change the battery, but a good 9v transformer and it's done.

Value for money: you pay for quality, but it's still cheaper than the Tech21, depending on the place where you buy.

If tomorrow a tractor rolls on agro, for sure that I bought another one!
