Speaker delivers an excellent overdrive and/or speaker simulation effect that is perfect for giving guitars a cheap catalogue cabinet crunch and vocals an old time “radio effect”.

4.5/5 – Gearslutz review: link
AudioThing’s cheery little gadget gets everything right, and is one you’ll find yourself reaching for time and time again as both a quick fix for overly clean instrumentation and an overt special effect.
