At 149 €, the Vanflet Distortion1 has a very aggressive price. Its reserve of gain is phenomenal as well as the range of action of the adjustment of tone which makes it possible to go from ultra-creamy to chainsaw! If you are looking for a pedal to get big sounds from your anemic amp, the Distortion1 will make you happy.
The only disadvantage that I found on this pedal is that the indicator of action is placed under the switch to activate it, so inevitably, it is hidden when activated.
With its 3 settings that each have a very wide range, it is very easy to find the sound you want. No need for a driver's license for this pedal.
