First off I am pretty clean player with Rockabilly, 50's, 60's 70's classic rock. I do not do any Heavy Metal, Punk, or Fuzz stuff. I like to really hear chords and individual notes not a bunch of convoluted distorted tones. I get no heavier than Link Wray My take on this pedal is, it is a winner big time. Good on BYOC they should only make three a month and get the price up there like a KOT (King of Tone) since I already got mine I ordered it with the Mosfet module for the boost section pretty excited about the other modules and possible future modules for the boost. I got it yesterday played with it for about three hours. I used my Tele with traditional Tele single coils, used my Gibson ES335 with 57 Classics, used my Gretsch G6129T 62 Jet with Filtertrons, and my Hagstrom Viking Tremar Deluxe with Gibson P94's. I used my three amps 1966 Fender Pro Reverb 40 watts Fender Blackface at it's best, 5E7 Sterling Fender 3X10 Bandmaster Clone Tweed Heaven, Mesa Boogie Transatlantic TA 15 5-15+ watts with Fender, Vox, Marshall, Mesa, tones in one very cool little head. I got the tones I was looking for with each guitar and amp combo. The Crown Jewel is a very versatile pedal there are tons of tones in there with the different switching available. I am not a tweaking geek tone freak and too many switches and knobs bother me. I found the Crown Jewel to be easy to figure out and the switches and knobs are intuitive. The Presence and Frequency Knobs are cool and the three way switch for the mid-range parameters is awesome, these open up tons of tonal possibilities. Those features with the standard tone controls are great. This pedal will do anything from clean slight overdrive and anything between to some pretty nasty distorted sounds which I never use. The pre assembled price is very reasonable in my opinion it is a nice size for a pedal board it will definitely replace my BYOC OD2 I have been using as my main OD.
