"With the Fat50 head and the F212, I have finally found my stage sound. Punchy, assertive, and FAT ;) Super usability and extremely rugged, in other words, perfect for on the road. I'm equally enthusiastic about the Overdrive, Solid Metal, and the Hurrigain. The Overdrive is a pedal that you can use very flexibly depending on the situation. The Solid Metal is a blast, because no matter what you connect it to, it always has an extremely authentic metal sound. All I can say about the Hurrigain is: fuzzy sound alarm, it's just SICK ;) and a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to more!"
