Green Wonder

Back to some pedal shenanigans; this little green pedal is worth it. Oh yes, there's no hiding the fact that it's a variant of a certain green pedal out there. No, I didn't buy the hand wired version which lists for much more than this one; I got what works for me. 

So where does this sit in terms of relevance? The LGW is a low compression unit so it has more headroom for your direct guitar signals. Simply put, it drives later & less readily than you expected it to. Plus point- it interacts well with your guitar's volume play. The other advantage here is that this feature makes it more 'stackable' with other drive/ distortion source & proves to be less in the way when you use it with your amp's dirty channel. This was how it impressed me at the store with both single coil & humbucking guitars. The manufacturer did well in labelling the EQ section as BODY instead of tone. This is note-worthy because this feature is a center detent control that pumps up the treble at clock wise rotation & lower midrange at counter-clockwise direction. So there you have it, slight differences from what you'd expect from a green dirt box but many of us would require that little bit more careful listening to appreciate the quirks.
