Recommended to us by Matt Schofield and his tech Simon Law, both of which know a bit about tone! This is an amzaing sounding transparent overdrive pedal
"A firm natural overdrive with a pleasant silky sustain. An easy to handle overdrive with great sustain without any unnatural compression. It keeps the characteristics of the tones that the guitars naturally produce. The Jan Ray reproduces that great sustaining punchy clear tones of the blackface Fender amps from the 60's. The tone is crispy yet the low is warm and mellow."
