I just picked up a used one of these at guitar center today for 60$ and holy shit this thing destroys. throwing it in the effects loop the tone shaping capabilities are endless. i used it at practice tonight for 3 hours and sculpted everything from middy thrash, scooped death, doom, swedish buzz saw, to hornets nest black metal tones. i think I'm falling in love with this thing. i feel like its gonna take me a week to dial it in to a tone i can settle with.
so my question is, do any of you guys use this pedal? and whats the best way to go about using it in conjunction with the amp's EQ settings? cause i noticed its super sensitive and the tone varies drastically from one guitar to another.
Personally i use it to notch out frequencies in my tone that I find irritating. Like that cardboardy stuff at 500, and that "i wish you didn't exist so i could actually use my presence knob" that the 16k slider deals with pretty handily. Slap it in the loop and leave it on. it can also be really sweet for single channel amps since you can dial the volume and gain back and give yourself a clean tone with a little help from your volume knob.
