Turn the Voice control higher? Not gonna help you with the bass loss, but that's how tubescreamer-y circuits are. Zendrive's one of the smoothest pedals I've tried though, maybe other than the Blackstone MOSFET Overdrive? Try that.
Sounds super awesome on a clean platform amp. Wants to be boosted, good for Fuzz Face types, octavias, and treble boosters.
I used to rock the Fulltone '69 + DLS MKII combo on my Fender DeVille, but then I downgraded to an Orange Tiny Terror.
A multi-effect like the M5 is useful for those certain songs that need a specific effect (i.e. Whammy, Shimmer-y sound, Flange/Phase, chorus). Then all you need is wah, ODs, and a subtle delay.
I also have an Octron as I love the fuzz octave up sounds on Hendrix-y solos.
I'm actually super interested on Treble Boosters, and I don't consider myself 'old' yet haha (I'm 22).
I've been looking at and researching on treble boosters and I have a question. Is it less woolier than, say a Fulltone '69 fuzz? I use the '69 to have super long sustain to my Timmy+DLS MKII...
