Some people love it. Some people hate it. I think everyone should sit and spend time with one and decide for themselves. I think it is more usable and versatile than people like to give it credit for. Anyway... This pedal is 100% original and has been fully tested for excellence. There are some signs of use, but who cares, right? It's made of metal and it's job is literally to be stepped on. This pedal rocks! Get in the Zone. Metal Zone!.
