The Ruiner is what happens when you combine two Dark Boosts together. You’d think that it’d create a really dark sound. Instead, the one boost circuit overdrives the second into a highly compressed (to the point of squishiness) fuzz sound that is great with large resonating bass lines as well as (strangely) old school 70′s funk fuzz guitar.
