    Has anyone had a chance to compare these two? Are they different enough to warrant buying both? How would you describe each pedal's sound?

    BTW, please do not turn this into thread about the TOD and Fuzz, there are tons of threads on those already.

    They're very different pedals. It's worth buying both if you need a really nice overdrive and a nice distortion pedal. . I probably have 30 other ods/distortions so I didn't need either, but they're fantastic pedals... The Distortion is definitely 'distortion meets fuzzy distortion' and the Drive is definitely "Overdrive meets distortion" ... They're different and every single pedal reacts with every single amp differently . enjoy

    Thanks Eric, I've actually purchased the drive on ebay but if I buy the distortion too I get a break on shipping. I am interested in hearing both so maybe I will go ahead and pull the trigger. I just wanted to make sure the where different enough to justify shelling out the cash.

    Rotren, a member here and a great guitarist who makes nice video reviews, just bought the distortion and he said it's great.
    I'm waiting for his video :bong

    I have both. To me the Drive sounds a little more modern and the Distortion sounds old school. Both sound great at either low or higher gain settings. Both also sound good with singles and hums.
