    Hello dear forumites,

    I was on the hunt for a great overdrive pedal for blues and rock to go with my Bassbreaker 18/30 amp.

    I liked the Way Huge Green Rhino Mk IV, but accidentally I stumbled over some comparison Video with the Way Huge Overrated Special and I was blown away.

    As Joe Bonamassa is my favorite guitar player, (Cheers to you Joe if you read this :) ) I was even more interested. I googled the pedal and found out that it was sold out and limited to only a 1.000 pieces. They were available since early 2016.

    I was quite sad, but the story has a happy end, because I found one pedal in Rotterdam in our neighbouring country:) It seemed to be the last one available anywhere, so I ordered it, and yesterday it arrived. It is 0977 of 1.000 I am so happy, even on my PC with the Line 6 amp simulation it sounds pretty good. The boosted mids give it a real kick:). I am looking forward to my amp test on thursday with my band.

    And no, it´s not a Dumble clone pedal, it´s a midboosted Green Rhino with a 500hz control and a tone knob and it´s recommended to be used with an already distorted amp, the way Joe does it:)

    So, here´s the pics:)

    Yes, they are hard to come by. If you ever happen to be in Germany, just pm me for a test XD

    Gonna test it in band practice tomorrow, I am very excited right now:)

    Thanks.

    The band practice was very good. I used a EHX soul food and a Wampler Plexi Drive in my setup before, now only the WH is left.

    The pedal sounds great, it has a bunch of mids and I love it as a solo boost. I rearranged my pedalboard again after band practice and I only use my WahWah and the WH now. Nothing else is needed for a good solo tone:)

    Great pedal,

    Cheers CT
