Interesting. A guy on the other thread about the Hot Plexi mentioned that it has a low output and doesn't even acheive unity gain (or volume, I guess) with the settings dimed. That's a deal-breaker for me, if true, though there were other comments indicating there wasn't a low output.Don't know, but I had a go on one on Saturday and was distinctly under-impressed. The Utimate Drive and the American, purple one really blew me away on the other hand.
In addition to what dave_mc mentioned, it may be of interest to note that the following text was featured on the Joyo site earlier this year:I really don't understand why people think the OCD and the Ultimate Drive have any similarities.
its an ocd clone. pot values are different. even the same pedal made by the same company will sometimes have the same issue. if you compare based on sound, not adjusting controls identically the same sounds are there.I really don't understand why people think the OCD and the Ultimate Drive have any similarities. The OCD's settings and sounds are nothing like the Ultimate Drive. The Joyo drive resembles a higher gain distortion to me.
What do you mean by "the volume mod" here? Is this a well-known mod I can find some info on? For me, the knob that seems to be defective/pointless is the gain knob. Very little difference across the spectrum. It would be cool to be able to get lower-gain tones from it.It does need the volume mod, it makes a ton of difference in overall performance, but it's a fantastic pedal for the price.
