@amstratnut Beats $200 new I had to pay for mine. My main lead pedal was a Wampler SLOSTORTION ( it sounds uncannily like my Decatone head ) but I wore out the switches on it and sent it in to BAD to be repaired. I had gigs to do so I needed some thing that kick ass like the Wampler did. I try lots of stuff around town but the Friedman made them all sound wimpy. If it’s too much for ya I hear there are dip switches inside that let you “tame” the sound.... screw dat! I’ll never touch dat me. You know when you trying to make a Strat sing like Neal Schon .... it’s like dat!
