Not saying that amp sounds good, but it DOES have gain. Steve, make a metal amp. I know yall will step in and say "my amp does metal". Yeah it does metal rythms better than any other. But not so true for leads. JMO
    That mod was designed not to "fix" anything, but to demonstrate that more gain is not the solution (and is why we do not offer or support that mod here). It just increases compression and washes out the mids. The GP3 is articulate like the heads and the clarity that some people equate with lack of gain is exactly the thing that is lacking in amps with 5150 gain levels. The fake "metal amps" out there just produce fizz and mud. Real amps like the Deliverance and Ultra-Lead are what many real metal players use and record with - even if they "endorse" something else.

    Thank you ... this made it clear...
    The SAS with the gain low or off and using the volume to push the front of the D120 is one of my favorite ways to use the pedal....
    The fact that Stephen appears from nowhere, is sentenced to death in an emotional public trial without anyone interfering at all and is then altogether forgotten as if nothing happened, is already suspicious.

    In further review, the Boostassio is great but sensitive! I hate evreything at first. Don't let my OCD rambling stop anyone from trying this out.

    i want a boosto SO bloody badly, but i never seem to have the extra dosh to get one. i wanna whack one in my siggie's fx loop. to use as an alternate preamp (of sorts) with an vox/ef86 vibe, which is how i use my lovepedal super 6 (blackface) & pro analog dirt roy (dumple). i can tell from the demos i've heard that it'd KILL with my siggie...
