    Van Weelden Royal Overdrive vs Kingsley Jester

    I use my Jester in a similar way. I'm not with the pedal now, but I generally use it on mode 2, gain about 2:00, volume at 9:00, sometimes set the boost (mode 1) low to act as a master volume for practicing late at night.

    Yes, you nailed it. That's what I was talking about.

    Sorry for the delay, I'm on a trip. Yes, I'm talking apartment levels. I know they won't sound their best, but some pedals are more volume dependent then others and sound very thin at low levels. Some sound good enough and shine at gig volume. These are the ones I usually look for.

    Then probably it's not for me, thanks for your advice. I've been more of a fuzz guy but leaning more and more towards heavy drive these days. I have had Klones, Spaceman Aphelion (the loudest), a couple of Effectrodes, KOT and TS808HW (manageable volume, but works better on a dirty amp) etc...

    Van Weelden Royal Overdrive vs Kingsley Jester

    Hi all... I've got a Kingsley Jester for about a year and, while I think it sounds very good, I think it needs to be played really loud to give its best (which is a problem for many hi end boutique overdrives, IMHE). I've been listening to samples of the Royal Overdrive and liked them a lot...

    Your current favorite Overdrive / Distortion pedal

    I'm torn between this and Kingsley Jester V2. The best ones I've ever tried.

    If you could only have one...

    I've owned all three and liked them all. The 335 is my favorite one for sound, solidness and versatility. LP is an unbeatable rock monster. I like the light weight and openness of SG tones, but the neck wobble sometimes is hard to get by.

    NPD: Effectrode Mercury Fuzz

    Got mine yesterday and I'm amazed with its tones. It makes an excellent pair with the Fire Bottle before or after it for an extra oomph. I don't think I need much more distortion-wise, but it made me want to try the Tube Drive too.

    SD-1 or BD-2 for Fender Blackface Amp?

    Tried many, many boutique overdrives with a DRRI and a MIT SD1 was one of the best. Made me feel embrarassed on how much I have spent to find a great drive tone. The Waza should be even better.

    Thanks for the video! I'm on the waiting line for a Jester and a bit undecided between it and a Jouster. Your video made me sure I made the right choice :)

    Thank you very much for this answer! It seems that the Jester would be great for me. If I need more drive, I'll follow you and also order a Jouster or a Harlot and stack them.

    I thought the same except for the boost, which for me is a bonus. Do you think the the Jester OD is a good choice for classic rock and hard rock rhythm playing in a clean blackface-like amp? For leads and boosting a cooking amp, I'm sure it's great.

    Congratulations! After being undecided for a long time (still am, in fact) I chose a Jester over the Jouster and I am on the waiting line for it. Have you tried stacking the boost side of the Jester with the Harlot or the Jouster?
