Our Verdict

Tonnes of fun and plenty of quality to match.


  • Versatile.
  • Lots of fun.


  • Very few.

The two-stage drive cascaded into the ‘Texas’, the company’s take on a Tube Screamer, which is particularly powerful... and fun. 

When compared side by side with a real tube high-gain amplifier, it’s hard to tell which is real and which is the pedal - there’s certainly not even a whisker of dreaded digital ‘fizz’.
