    Still my favorite distortion pedal!

    After trying a lot of stuff, this is still on my pedalboard. With its unique character and low noise floor (there are some very good clones of the Suhr Riot out there which come very close tone-wise, but are all much more noisy!) it covers most of my needs. The 3 modes are distinctively different, but as you can’t easily switch it while playing, I leave it at my favorite one and that’s it.
