Only thing I would offer as a caution is that even at its lowest fuzz setting, it's pretty heavy; you couldn't really use it to add just a touch of dirt to your clean sound, at least with my setup. Your results may vary. But either way, who cares? Excellent, excellent pedal, I trust it with my life.
The tone knob is backwards from what I’d expect—it gets bassier as you turn it clockwise—but it never gets too bassy. While I didn’t like that at first, I’ve realized that it’s actually the best thing about the pedal. With the tone and gain all the way to the left, you get this really spitty, crackly fuzz, which feels pretty lo-fi and a little out-of-control. When you turn both knobs all the way right, you get infinite wooly sustain. It’s sooooo good.
Note: the Tone Reaper is always pretty distorted, but if you turn down the volume on your guitar, you can clean things up a bit. If you want something tame, this is not the pedal for you. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for something really fun and inspiring, I whole-heartedly recommend the Tone Reaper.
