Friends, this pedal is transformative. I just got it earlier this week. Mostly to use with my Strat, but I played the Les Paul through it this morning and it was a revelation. Beautiful, complex, overdriven tone with the volume on the guitar at 8 to 8.5 or so. Thick, wooly, ridiculous fuzz/distortion with the guitar volume on 10. Chimey cleans with the guitar volume on 3-6 or so. I've never used a fuzz face type before. I highly recommend trying one. FWIW, with the Les Paul, it sounds much better through my Marshall amp than my Deluxe Reverb. It sounds good through both, but it is just classic through the Marshall. And it likes the amp to be cooking a little -- don't set it dead clean.
