    I managed to try SexyDrive in a local shop a few days ago. It's a remarkable low-mid overdrive with tons of dynamics and a very natural tone. Extremely touch sensitive. This is exactly the case when you literally can't stop playing :). Some more short videos showing its outstanding sonic qualities:





    SexyDrive has entered my wish list.

    Maybe sbdy could enlighten me - I recently bought SexyDrive
    on Reverb - it is brand new but seller has no return policy.

    There are couple of issues they concern me a bit.
    1. volume pot periodically becomes "scratchy" - and I mean it is
    bad - not just noise but volume drops to zero. Unplugging effect
    fixes it. Seems very strange - never seen it anything like that on
    any pedal.
    2. the EQ controls do not really have a lot of effect on tone - especially
    in lower gain. There is a difference between extreme position but it is
    barely audible.

    Is it normal behavior for this pedal or did I just buy a lemon?

    Edit:
    3. Another somewhat strange thing is the gain knob - it is not very linear -
    there is a position (around 10:30 or so) when the character of the response
    changes quite abruptly.

    Thanks for posting. Great sounding pedal. Is the Sexydrive kind of close to Floor One on the 1959 Double Decker?
