Dover Drives are listed fairly frequently at reasonable prices ($100-$200), but sell just as fast. The one hanging around is hanging around because of the reason you aren’t buying. $269 is an exorbitant price.See here's the problem I'm experiencing. Seems like every one of these Eric Johnson violin tone pedals comes out, and is discontinued within a few years.
Dover Drive seems to be discontinued, either temporarily or permanently. Meanwhile there are two for sale used on Reverb, one in Canada for local pickup - I'm in Texas - and one for $269.
Funny that the echoplex preceded the Tube Driver when that kinda bucks the effects loop common wisdom.Nope, fuzz face is always in the "dirty rhythm" chain and never used with the tube driver. It's EP-3-Tube Driver-Marshall.
Good tips, thanks.Dover Drives are listed fairly frequently at reasonable prices ($100-$200), but sell just as fast. The one hanging around is hanging around because of the reason you aren’t buying. $269 is an exorbitant price.

I think you can get a decent EJ lead tone from the left side of the Xotic BB Plus as well.
I actually have Jetter GSB and The Dude on my board - love them both, but I think the are not that close related. But - I tried to get The Dude to sound like GSB set how I prefer it (dark and too loud, haha) and it was actually really, really close. I’m running them into clean amp (Two Rock Studio Pro 35). They can both do EJ/violin type thing but Jetter has some fuzz qualities I like. But The Dude does other things that GSB does not offer.Good tips, thanks.
I had a Jetter Gain Stage Blue that really came close on lower-gain settings, pushing a low gain set tube amp just over the edge.
The Blue had a lot of Zen Drive DNA, just a whole lot more, so if my Zen Drive pedal experiment works, I might pickup a J Rockett "The Dude", which I understand to be capable of Zen-On-Steroids tones.
Treble and bass almost rolled back completely since bass only creates mud - same thing with the Tube Driver. Presence is usually rather low as well.If you’re going to use a Plexi, something that is often overlooked is how Eric dials in his Marshall. Bass cranked, Treble/Presence basically off and Mids dialed to taste, and jumper the channels. You can find it online. Start there and then add a smooth.. ish drive pedal, like a Suhr Shiba drive, Xotic AC, Wampler Euphoria, etc... and then delay. He keeps the drive quite low on his Butler Tube Driver. If playing a single coil guitar, roll the tone down to 7 and you’ll be close enough for Rock n’ Roll...
I only wish for it to be tighter in the lows and easier to dial in. Probably it's based on the same fundamental design as the Fulltone Fat Boost, which I keep forgetting the origins of.The MXR FET Drive also works as a TD styled pedal that's more EJ tuned than Gilmour. It's definitely easier to find than the Dover Drive.
My contribution would have to be rather off-beat and I use it more for for rhythm than anything else - yes: my lead is more complex than that.
At 7:15 things are getting quite interesting.
Agreed. I'm very happy with both of them, but I had to really put in the time to dial in what I wanted to hear. In both cases, totally worth it, especially with the Fat Sandwich. Had the black version years ago and couldn't bond with it. Picked up the gold version last year and tweaked it until I found what I was looking for. I was using it this morning and it was just pure violin tone.The Way Huge Swollen Pickle, is capable of lot of sounds. I keep one adjusted for brown sound.
The Fat Sandwich, can get a range of sounds from low gain, syrupy lead and distortion.
These pedals require alot of patience and knob twisting, but if you persevere, you will find what you're looking for.
