How much did you purchase this item for? About $35

Where did you purchase this item? Pawn shop, Daleville, Alabama

Is this item new or used? Used, mid to late 80s

Features: Level, Two Color Mix knobs (tone), and Distortion knobs

Construction: Solid

Sound: One of the most versatile rock distortion boxes in my collection. Got an excellent "Smoke On The Water" seventies stoner tone with the HM2 and a Telecaster. Works well as a boost too.

Ease of Use: Simple with many tones to be found using the two tone knobs

Reliability: Almost twenty years old and still works perfectly

Overall: Essential. All you whippersnappers ought to go out and find yourself one of these. A tone monster.

Where did you purchase this item? Local music store.
Is this item new or used? Used.

Features: Level, two color mix, distortion.
Construction: Solid.

Sound: You can get some heavy sounds out of this, turn the left color mix to the right about 3/4's and the right color mix left 3/4's and dist. About 3/4's to the right and thatís a heavy sound.

Ease of Use: Very easy - my first pedal.

Reliability: Great, one of the jack inputs has started to play up but considering its age itís pretty good.
