This is a souped up recreation of the classic Rangemaster treble booster pedal used by Clapton, Jimmy Page, and other guitarists in the 60s.

If you want the quickest way to get that era of Clapton tone, this kind of pedal is the way to go. There are other Rangemaster style pedals which I haven't tried, but I'm quite happy with this one.
I like the adjustable frequence width. Not every use case demands a sharp piercing treble boost, some amps sound better with a little more mids mixed in. Being able to adjust the gain is nice too, making it easier to use with amps set at different grit levels.
I use this pedal primarily to get an early 60's Clapton-esque tone, ala the Bluesbreakers album. I set the amp a bit dirty, not very bright, then use this pedal to really push the high end.
