    I'm strongly considering getting a Jetter Traindrive to serve as a bluesy to higher-gain OD. I have a BFE HoneyBee, which has it's own delicious sound, but I was hoping the Traindrive would be a nice alternative. I really like Warren Haynes sound (as most people do), but I'm not trying to exactly get his tone. I had a Slostortion at one point, and didn't truly like it for one reason or another.

    My rig consists of a Nash S63, a R8, and a older Peavey Classic 30.

    Are there any other pedals I should check out?

    Any one? I know they are new but didn't figure they were that scarce.

    Nice! Sounds great but i kept coming back to Koch's demo, so I ordered one of these Traindrives. I had a nice email conversation with Brad Jetter as well, and will probably order one of the new BR1200's once they hit the street.

    I'll post back once I get some time with the Traindrive.

    I would consider ordering the Johnny A. I believe it's a custom order but it's the GS124 and Train Drive in the same enclosure.

    Yea, I saw that one and even talked to Brad about it. I think I like the BR1200 tones better though. Maybe I'm just not a Dumble guy. One of 2 I think.

    Finally got the Traindrive. It is by far my most favorite overdrive pedal. Brad really outdid himself on this one. I would have to say that all the advertising about this pedal is true. I don't think I've ever heard anything like this before, and though I've never played a Trainwreck and can't compare the two, the tone is THERE. Two big thumbs up.
