Ordered one, just got it and gave it a whirl at gig volume thru my Z28 1x12(WGS Reaper HP) with my dual humbucker tele(Dimarzio PAF Master, vntage mini humbucker). The amp was set 2-10-2, with the BL on 2 clicks. This rig is definitely overdriven. Roll back the gtr vol for clean.
The Ruby Red is a treble booster, a clean booster, or both, which really makes it an overdrive. My problem with most clean boosts(especially with neck humbuckers) is, crank em up, they get muddy or bass out. With the RR, I can set the amount of boost/dirt, then adjust the volume, THEN add in treble/high mids. I think LOW mids are the Z28s "thang," so adding in high mids via the treble booster half of the pedal gives some serious bite to the Z28s bigness. Full vol with the pedal on is just slamming. Gtr rolled back, the pedal on is like rolling it back up. It truly feels like it's a part of the amp.
This was purpose bought, for that guitar/amp/setting combination. I'm not sure I'd love the RR into the amp set clean. A/Bed it as such with a Timmy, preferred the Timmy. I'm gonna try it at other amp and pedal settings, with other guitars later. But for now, my minimalist amp> boost>wah>guitar rig is done.

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
