    yes I searched...

    Who uses a JCM800? Running gain about midday or 1 o'clock and boosting the pregain with a Klon(e) and or/a Fulldrive?
    Thoughts on either?
    To me, my Klon isn't as compressed or as smooth as my modded SD-1.
    Thinking about grabbing of the black Fulldrives...
    What have you guys found?

    Are you looking to improve on the SD-1 or are you looking for something with an alternate sound?

    Similar sound but with 2 levels of boost
    1) Amp gain
    2) bit of gain boost from the Fulldrive on
    3) lot of gain boost with the Fulldrive boost side on

    More interested in whether the Fulldrive keeps that inherent SD-1 smoothness, considering it's based on the SD-1.
    Believe it or not I've never heard one.

    Klones work really well with Marshalls. I use the KTR all the time with a JCM800.
