    Just like that!! I really like mine too. I love 2 band or more EQ on an OD, tone just doesn't cut it.

    I have a couple ;) Got them when they were $35 - $40. Still a favorite. The EQ makes this pedal friendly with any amp. Snag one if you can find one.

    I love my Bad Monkey as well, and for the cited reason, because I prefer having (at least) separate bass/treble controls, over a single "tone."

    Truth be told, though, I almost never use mine, as I tend to play master-volume amps, and use amp distortion only (I know that tons of people do the whole "pedals as gain stages" thing and "stack" overdrive/distortion/fuzz pedals, either on top of each other and/or in addition to amp distortion, but I've never felt the need to go down that rabbit hole). But, for example, if I am using my non-MV amps (mainly, my '66 Fender Super Reverb, currently over at my tech's for a much needed refurb, or my pre-'69 Sunn 200S), then the Bad Monkey is definitely my first choice to push those harder.

    Possibly subconsciously coloring my preference is the fact that I actually got my Bad Monkey for free, in a contest on another small (now long-since abandoned/defunct) guitarists' web forum. Yay freebies!

    i have one coming as well. i dont stack pedals and do like to use the amps tone
    alone when possible. sometimes a amp needs a swift kick in the ass to get it producing.
