I have been on the lookout for a low to medium gain overdrive pedal. I have been using a Visual Sound Route 66 which was good, but it wasnt exactly what I wanted. I find that it has either too much bass (with the bass switch on) or not enough bass (with the bass switch off). I also found that the sound was a little "muddy" at times. I initially started looking at the DGTM because its the one that Greg Koch uses. I was trying to decide between the DGTM and the new Clark Gainster. I decided to go with the DGTM and, being in Canada, I ordered one from Scott at axeandyoushallreceive.com. I got it earlier this week and so far, I'm loving it! I've been using it with my HSS strat into both a Hot Rod Deluxe and a DRRI. It has the standard voume, treble and drive knobs and it has a toggle to switch between a Tube Screamer type mode, and a more compressed Marshally type mode. I've been mainly using on the Tube Screamer side and I love both the range of overdrive I get and the "clarity" which I hear - to me, it doesnt "muddy" up the way the Route 66 does. Unfortunately it doesnt make me sound like Greg Koch ! Anyway, I'd highly recommend it as an alternative if you are looking for a new drive type pedal. My new Tele should be arriving any day and I cant wait to try it through this new pedal.
