Mike Trombley has been releasing pedals from his Dayton, Ohio workshop under his NativeAudio brand for two or three years now. This is the first one I've had the pleasure to try but a little search through YouTube tells me that the lineup offers a lot. I'll be keen to dive in further. The Kiaayo (key-ey-yo) is a very amp-like overdrive in that it responds well to playing dynamics. The pre-gain low-pass filter is part of the gain stage in that it can add drive just by turning it up a little and the gain control itself can be manipulated and made part of the dynamics with your guitar's volume control. The Kiaayo has a great midrange-y sound that will surely help you cut through any band or recorded mix and its three no-fuss controls help keep operation simple. Great stuff, Mike!
