I demoed this pedal the other day at Guitar Center. Played through a decent tube amp with a Gibson LP.... all I can say is this thing thoroughly confused me. It was near impossible to get a usable sound. There was something wierd and unnatural about it... maybe the fact that the tone itself sounded like a fuzzy distortion, but there was not much compression/sustain that I normally associate with that type of distortion. Very strange pedal... or I don't know how to use it.

Yep, I didn't get that pedal either. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it was his take on a RAT. But I really dig my Keeley RAT. Maybe getting into my RAT now, I'd like it a bit more. Cause the RAT is kinda fuzzy, but it still has some good stustain though...

The DP is the pedal that he pushed as a tube-based overdrive pedal that was supposed to kill the TS9 and anything else. At the last minute, it became a non-tube-based pedal. Something went awry in either design or implementation and I assume he had to get the pedal out anyway.

If you play low output Strat single coils thougha clean Fender amp, you could get a pretty damned nice lead tone with the DP and bridge pickup.

Other than that? ehhh.............

I tried for four years to get a usable sound out of this pedal, with no success. I sold it a year or so ago and I have no regrets.

The Distortion Pro is the bastard child of Mike Fuller.

It's definitely the worst pedal in his entire line. But he deserves a pass.
