I’ve been using this fantastic little pedal for a couple of years now. I’m not a gear aficionado, so I don’t know all the ins and outs of the pedal world. I have to admit, I initially bought it because of the Tim Pierce name (I’m a huge fan). But if it’s got his seal of approval, it can’t be too shabby, right?
This pedal is well-made, hefty, and top-quality. It’s also very quiet when bypassed or activated. The power amp works great as a boost for both clean and overdrive solos. The tone is exceptional and very prominent. If you crank the drive all the way up, you won’t be shredding like Synyster Gates, but you will get some thick leads, and the tone and bass knobs are highly responsive.
Whether you’re looking to experiment or use it live, you won’t regret getting this pedal. It’s not ideal for the shred-master deluxe, but that’s not really its intended purpose. This pedal is perfect for adding a little grit to your tasty licks, the type of playing that’s made Tim Pierce a fixture in modern music for the past few decades. I haven’t tried it with a single-coil guitar, but with a juicy neck humbucker pickup, it will absolutely soar.
