Very cool demo, superb sounding and looking pedal. I'm always on the lookout for a pedal that captures my favorite iconic tones. Looks pretty fantastic too. :crackjam:

What kind of gain does it have? For example is it similar to a dope Priest?

My usual preference is foe pedals is dimed fuzz and volume and then when you turn it on its like being kicked in the face.

There's loads of gain on tap, I think it sounds best with the gain set high, great for palm muted riffs. Responds well to pick attack, and some nice crunchy tones when you roll the guitar vol back.
It does like to be in front of a loud clean amp, doesn't work well into a dirty amp. Great pedal :party:

Nothing like the Dope Priest.
Is essentially a treble boost overdriving a preamp
Like a treble boost it responds well to volume and pick attack, same for cutting through a mix

Yep, that about sums it up, it's best with a clean amp. I have a couple in stock, no list. :badteeth:

Great, thanks for the info.

I do have a Analogman Mini Beano Boost but its no where near as loud as my other pedals so I mainly use it to muck around on at home. Really tempted to push the button on this one - is it loud? I like alot of boost when I kick on a pedal.
