Its called the Super Distortion&Feedbacker DF-2. Its a good distortion
unit, while you stomp on it it grabs the single note that you are playing
and emulates a feedback tune. The bad thing is that the "feedback" sounds
like a cheap organ, but if you enhance it with phaser,delay etc. you
can achive cool sounds. And if the sound is not cool, you can always
put the blame on the keyboarder ;) I wont sell my DF-2...
