I’ve always been a fan of the boss DS-1 don’t get me wrong its great, but this pedal takes it to a whole new versatility. I can play lead and rhythm sounds and can adjust how much high and low end i want for both. Tons of possibilities for metal, rock, grunge, etc. i did a comparison of my ds-1 and this eras with my voodoo power supply and put a EHX noise gate on and compared the ds-1 vs the eras for dist. Noise the eras had zero noticeable noise while the ds-1 had hum even through the noise gate. The price of these pedals may be higher than other pedals but they're worth every penny.
Hey Matt! Thanks for picking up an Eras! We are glad you have found it versatile and usable! Jam on! - Walrus Audio
