    Hey Hey guys,

    For overdrive im running a BB pre amp into a Suhr Shiba into a Katana.
    Fulldrive hasnt really been used as Im not crazy what it does to my low end. Sounds good, but just kind looses some "umph". Im living here in Brazil now, where it is impossible to buy any new gear cuz of the prices. What it does allow me to do is sell my gear at 2x-3x the price I paid for it and STILL be under Brazillian prices. I have a friend interested in my fulldrive. I played a Atro tone last year in Canada and really did love it. So im thinking of selling him the fulldrive for the price of the Astrotone. Have some friends coming down in March from the states and would hav ethem bring it down.

    What yall think..... Atrotone > BB> Shiba> Katana.....

    the astrotone is definitely a better pedal than the fd and if you don't like it, you should be able to sell it for quite a bit then.

    I got both pedals
    You're comparing apples & oranges - OD/ booster and Fuzz.
    I like em both & they have totally different roles on my board.

    Personally I'd ditch the BB and keep the FD11.
    Astrotone is simply THE best fuzz pedal available imo

    I know ...definitely apples and oranges. I wasnt exactly comparing the two persé. I was stating that my two drives the BB and Shiba cover most, if not all, my OD needs. The FD was just ...there. Not being used. I was more refering to the Astrotone> BB > Shiba combo......
