Greetings, After a brief but thorough YT search, I'm super drawn to the original Vertex Ultraphonix Overdrive V1, 3 knobs... the MKII is also attractive but I like simple & effective... What I'm not certain of is if these are starting off on a Clean platform, & that pedal is the source of that cool harmonic grunge, & that it's not just a boost that's pushing a clipping amp into further OD... My platform will be be squeaky clean & I want the pedal to do it's thing on its own....

And if it takes a 9v battery... I'm getting mixed answers from the Ebay & Reverb seller,,, So either thier toast or Vertex changed it up??? The Beekeeper is also cool, but mire that I care to spend, & way too many controls..

Any help gratefully accepted, & my cap is under 200 bucks, & battery powered would be nice. Original MKI version in question, on the left..
Thnx in advance

All very interesting takes,,, As a matter of fact, I caught a clip of that Rowin, & was rather impressed...
If any of the Vertex 'OD's truly qualify as ass, I want ME some ass!!

Kindly describe exactly what 'ass' sounds like.... ??

Your initial post.

You won’t make any friends posting a Vertex thread.
And if you act like you don’t know how hated Vertex/Mason is here, that’s on you.

Honestly, you are better off with a Rowin Dumbler or something of that nature. It's an excellent Zendrive copy and far cheaper than the Vertex, which I would avoid.
Been itching for some thing Dumblish, you have always given solid recs, going to order tonight!
Thanks :)

JRockett DUDE is great, just doesn't respond to the guitar volume knob very well (doesn't clean up). Running an EQ into a blues-breaker type of pedal is a lot of fun and will get you into some cool dumble territory. In my experience Vertex stuff is very disappointing. They seem like more of a marketing company that targets your eye's rather than your ears. Play one in person before buying...
