    this is no super heavy distortion as the skull might suggest. Rather like a Dod 250 it goes from clean boost to overdrive when full on. It is a bit brighter then the Dod, which could be a good thing. Very dynamic, true bypass ofcourse, great built quality ... it will stay on my stressboard ! Another awesome pedal from HBE !

  • Something nice and new in the sound.

    My first opamp based drive pedal with an intrusive tone like you once noticed in transistor based units. I appreciate that.
