This is the pedal that created the effect heard on Jimmy Page's "Fool in the Rain" solo. The Blue Box takes your guitar signal and duplicates it two octaves down for a huge, subterranean tone. The Blend knob lets you control how much of the fuzz tone is mixed with the two octaves down signal. Not for the timid. There is truly nothing like the Blue Box.

Bought this pedal exclusively for the 8-bit sounds it can produce at a cheaper price than, say, Earthquaker Devices' Bit Commander. The Blue Box has a brutal volume cut when engaged, but, luckily, I had a boost pedal already in my chain which makes up for the drop in volume. This pedal absolutely needs a boost running after it in order to run it at unity with the other effects in your chain. I would recommend exploring the Bit Commander (or something similar) rather than getting this pedal.

This pedal is ridiclous. Turning the blend all the way to the right gives you a beautiful fuzz. Going all the way to the left gives you some vintage video game sounds. All in all pretty great.
