Bought another one last week

Guess I'll save this for the black and white videos.

For a entery level 80's distortion pedal this thing is starting to wake up. My next phase for this unit is to execute the Keeley seeing eye mod, just gotta find the correct guts.

Here is a lame recording of me dinking with the effect:
