    This thing is perfect. Best pedal to take the BE100 from very nice refined high gain and make it sound a little more pissed off. The best of both worlds now! In addition, changing the amp channel too … I mean c’mon … What more could you possibly want. PERFECT.

    Needs to have a + next to to the 5th star. Thing is pretty bad ass. Was never truly satisfied with the tonez i was getting out of my Dual Rectum Frier. Well saying I am now would b an understatement. I’m actually quite enjoying this amplifier now, finally!!!! 6irth 6rind and 6ain!!!!!!!

    Added the Grind to my rig running in front of a PRS Tremonti, Orange Rockerverb 100 MKIII, Mesa Boogie Road King II and Peavey 6505 and it dominates the tubescreamer type pedal I was running in front of the amps before now. It allows me to play detuned while keeping things nice and tight! I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    I was really excited about this pedal but when I got it and tried it out I was not a fan. I’m using this in front of a Mesa Triple Rect. Multi Watt and I thought it would tighten it up. When I tried it, it was almost nasally. Then, I saw a video of someone using it who said you have to crank the bass, So I did and had an “OOOOOH” moment. I now love it and just ordered the 33.
