Overdrive sounds good and get heavy really quickly. $479.99. Bought a few amps in my time, Nothing compares with this little cracker.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 23, 2015

However, I can't imagine putting it outside and expecting the whole neighborhood to hear it, for example. The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite variation, taking you from USA to UK tone, and anywhere in between.
All the way to the left, you get your Master of Puppets tone, and at 1 o'clock, I got what I believed to be a good Megadeth tone.
