Sounds good - fairly authentic. Easy to use. Makes some noise in front of high-gain pedals or amps.

Roland JP-8080
Roland JP-8080

The JP-8080 is a rackmount/desktop version of the JP-8000 virtual analog synthesizer. The VA synthesis engine is the first of its kind from Roland. Both this and the JP-8000 were the original synths to include a "supersaw" waveform, a simulated 7-oscillator detuned sawtooth wave.

Egnater Silversmith
Egnater Silversmith

Sister pedal to the Egnater Goldsmith Overdrive, high gain distortion and boost. Similar to the Gold this Silversmith cranks the gain, articulate and quality build, well worth the price of admission. This series of pedals by amp maker Egnater are rather peerless in look and tone, big recommends.

Casio CZ-1000

This is a four voice mid-1980s programmable synthesizer. Using inexpensive mid-1980s technology (its street price in 1986 was $300), it crudely emulates an analog filter using "phase distortion"; it has a DX7 quality to its sound.
