NPD: MOOER Black Secret — Believe the hype!
Since my board only had the space to accommodate a mini pedal I figured I'd give the Black Secret a try, since it supposedly has the same 'legendary' chip (if chips can be considered *legendary*) of the original Rats, which not even modern Rats use any more, and for $35 it was an extremely low-risk gamble. And holy cow, friends and neighbors — this thing just replaced my $160 boutique distortion pedal on my board. It works for everything from crunchy hard rock, to soaring, sustaining leads over ambient wash, and just about anything else. Plus, stacking it with my Nobels ODR-mini set at low-gain gives it a little extra bottom-end, with just the right amount of searing sizzle on top.
