I bought this pedal last year, and I absolutely love it. I find it perfect to run in front of Fender style amps I like, and even to boost any other amp. The EQ is really responsive and the options are wide but....DAMN..is this thing a noisy bastard! Am I alone in dealing with this? I have tried it with a couple power supplies, batteries. I mean it sonically sounds awesome but there is just such a noticable amount of extra hiss/hum/noise. Is the smaller one they came out with different?
