Has anyone here ever put a pedal away for a while and then taken it out and rekindled their love affair with it? For me, it happened this week with three pedals: Fulltone Fulldrive II-I think I fell into the trap of thinking that so many pedals have come out since its arrival that surely some of them must be better. Uh-uh; into a clean amp it has a crisp, warm tone that is terrific with a nice Strat, and the Boost feature adds really usable extra gain. Into an already-overdriven amp it can create a wide array of distortion flavors. It's back on my board. Bixonic Expandora-this is going on my board for the first time. I always thought it was nice, but nothing so extraordinary. However, in the time since I put it away, I've moved on to some excellent fifty-watt heads and a couple of exceptional combos, and when I plugged it into each this week..wow, the tones I could pull up by manipulating the gain and drive knobs and the solid push it provids woke me up to its potential. Nine-Volt Nirvana Dinosaur Fuzz. I guess Joe Gagan isn't making these anymore, and that's a shame. It's a hybrid that utilizes silicon and germanium transistors together, and it's got very high components in it. It also lets the user set a rhythm level and has a second footswitch to go between that and a lead volume. It definitely works best in a cranked amp, and when I first bought it I seemed to always be using master-volume amps that were so low volume wise (vile soundmen!) that I couldn't bring out the best in the pedal. The other day, though, I got to play it through a cranked Reeves 50 watt head as well as through my Straub Cantus, and I was stunned at how rich and flexible it is! So, how about you?
