Guitar World Verdict

If you like AC30-esque tones, this pedal is a very flexible purveyor of that sound. It can be a practical drive and boost working with your amp, but that speaker-emulated output will give you great sounds for recording and get you out of trouble if your amp goes down at a gig.

    Authentically Vox-like tone.

  • +

    Practical size and layout for pedalboards.

  • +

    Speaker-emulated output.

    Nothing to speak of.

Here we have the Massive Unity 10th Anniversary Danny Gomez signature TAE pedal on review, designed by its namesake, a highly experienced session musician and designer, as well as a massive Brian May aficionado.
