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.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.
