    So finally I bought this green beauty.

    I bought it for 50% of the price of brand new one. It's only 3 months. Dedicated Dunlop power supply was included.

    I bought it to boost, tight and smooth my Laney Ireonhear IRT60 head.
    It'll replace MXR ZW-44. MXR it's nice pedal, but it's has tu much gain and gain structure is to grainy for my taste.

    I didn't plugged Green Rhino to Laney yet, but I checked it with Revalver and seems it can do both - give a nice clean boost, and tight guitar sound a lot!

    And this +12dB bass boost is a killer!

    Let us know how it works with your clean channel. Can you still run it without it being too dirty, or do you have to turn it off? This is my problem with boosts and why I just end up running the ones out of my GSP1101.

    I've had this pedal for a few months now. I bought it originally for a crunchy rock rhythm tone which it does great, but I was pleasantly surprised how well it works as a boost for high gain too. The 100MHz boost and the corner frequency adjustment are great features to have for this application. Really allows you to dial in something precise.

    So finally I tested Green Rhino with my amp and what I can say it sounds HUGE :)
    Previously I used MXR ZW-44 as a booster, but comparing to Green Rhino its to grainy and no-bass. 2 Extra knobs are really great for tone shaping and it's finally work as almost clean boost! Very nice sound on clean channel only slightly distorted but with a lot of bassy balls :)
