pedal, very light, very simple, powerful, versatile, can be your only
overdrive and it runs on a 9V battery, it doesn't get any more
minimalist than this. Be aware that is has a fantastical amount of GAIN, this pedal brings out harmonics by being loud, it does not excel at bedroomy sound pressure levels, and to be frank, neither do most old tube amps, turning them down makes them sound fizzy and lacking in bass.
