So this arrived in the mail for me today. Honestly, I have to say, amazing. I own a BoR and the boost although similar, are still different. With my setup, I think this is absolutely the perfect boost. I've seen this pedal described as "pulling the muffling blanket off your tone", I couldnt agree more. The SHO definitely has that sparkle sound I was looking for. I am mainly going to be using this as a boost, but it does make for a solid OD as well. The SHO gives a great amount of gain, but might not be in the overdrive tone everyone is looking for. I was really set on the EP booster, but after listening to the demos and playing with the pedal, I had to get the SHO. Plus, I think there is something great about having a hand painted ape on your pedal holding a guitar.
