Anyone have anymore experience w/ this pedal? I had a Zendrive I never really bonded with and supposedly this is a great alternative

I received one of these last Thursday, and I'M LOVIN" IT!!! I did a lot of research on it before I spent the money, and I think it is exceeding my expectations.

I've used a Zendrive for few years, and like you I've never quite bonded with it. I always felt like it was a little too compressed, not clear enough, and too hard to dial in. Not the FET Dream though. This pedal is very clear, dynamic, and easy to dial in. I jammed for a bit with mine last Friday and liked what I was getting, but it was at my gig last Saturday night that I was really floored. I had the best tone happening all night that I could remember ever having. Harmonics were jumping off my guitar and my rig was super dynamic and responsive.

FYI, I was using the FET Dream and an MXR Carbon Copy through a Genz Benz Black Pearl. No reverb. No other effects. My Les Paul was singing beautifully ALL NIGHT!

I highly recommend the FET Dream.

I had the exact same scenario and have arrived at the same conclusion and sense of immense satisfaction as you!! Great Pedal - best RF dumble tone in a pedal I've played yet.

Very intrested in this pedal. Dont know about the 'D' thing, but it sounds great at nailing that 'BB king' smooth and open tone that I'm looking for in a pedal. Chicago Blues meets Peter green type of thing. But... most of the clips on the website seem to be recorded allready going thru a Dumble style amp. Can anyone tell me how this pedal shapes up going thru a tweed or Blackface style rig? Thanks!

Hi Frank,

I recorded several of those clips. I chose to use a Dumble style amp primarily because in it's 'clean' mode, it was the most transparent amp I have and allowed me to showcase the pedal without adding a tone of 'character' of it's own. Actually, that amp is not all that different from a Blackface, including Fender replacement transformers.

Hopefully others can chime in with their experiences through tweed or balckface rigs.

Cheers, Brian

Thanks Brian! Nice to get some feedback from the source. FWIW, I play primarily thru a Cornell Romany Plus - a superb champ/prinston hybrid with a celestion blue. It can get bright and jangly - which I like, but I also crave that smooth gain thing too.

I own one and love it as well. I use it primarily for low gain - just enough hair to not be clean but not be *really* distorted either. It always sounds nice and full. It stacks really well with my higher gain (Barber DDSS) as well as my Fuzz Factory. I play through a Fender HRDlx (omega mod w/ V30 speaker). I dont consider changing this pedal out anytime.

My settings are:

Girth: 2 o'clock
Drive: 9-10 o'clock
Lean: 1 o'clock
Level: 1 o'clock

Im actually expecting mine in the mail today, only a few hours from now.
After reading all this obviously I cant wait. But what scares me now is that I just realized for the first time that its most likely threads like this that build up such high expectations that nothing short of absolute perfection showing up at my door will be good enough.
Regardless, I cant friggin wait!

I really like my FET Dream too. I had many of the highly regarded Dumble type pedals and all of them had their good points, but so far I prefer the FET Dream's voice and tonal character.
