holy hell, I was planning to make exactly the same topic!

respectable brand, quite cheap second hand, definitely something to look into

watched some guitar demos of fullbore metal on YT, and the thing seems pretty good

also interested in doubleshot distortion and blowtorch

if anyone used any of those, impressions will be much appreciated

AKA bees in a box. Nice pedal. Good for frantic buzzing distortion, shrill sounds and overall high pitch distortions. Nice to be able to sweep through all the frequency on this pedal and the option to dial in extra gain is a big plus. It goes very loud and very shrill!

However it hardly get any use from me and really should be selling it. I think this is a good pedal if you have a decent pedal-chain or a guitar, but for synths not so much. It has a typical 'boxed' stomp-box sound that makes it also limited for its use and to be honest, it's possible to drive this pedal very hard but it always sounds constrained to me - or better said, I want to make the pedal vomit but can't get it to choke.

I have the Fullbore and haven't tested it a lot but it does seem like a nice upgrade from the Boss MT2 (that I happen to like). More options, less size.
As W.K. said I noticed it is more on the screamin'/grindin' side of noise.

For now I like it and vote it as not a gamechanger but a solid aquisition within those mentioned aspects. A sidekick for your main distortion most of the times.

saw the doubleshot distortion in a case at the guitar shop and bought it un-heard just because of how stupid looking and ugly it is, and sonically it certainly lives up to its outward appearance. really nasty ripping hi-end. ability to dial in two settings and switch between them makes nice dramatic cuts. absolutely fuck-stupid little switches labeled "focus" are an added curiosity
