    I have a lot of very good drives. MXR GT OD, Suhr Shiva, BB preamp, Bogner Wessex...that was a real surprise. A lot of qualities, unexpensive, sounds awesome.

    It reminds me the cry baby mini wah. Same price, pocket sized, incredible sound. Now a kid can get a couple of legendary devices for $150...

    Here's a sample for you guys.

    And yes, those are EMG soapies. P81/P85. As the top is made of mahogany in the neck pickup area and maple in the bridge ( we noticed that when my tech took off the original pickups ) I have a super warm neck pickup and a sparkly one on the bridge. I love it !!!

    I made a sample for you guys !!!

    I didn't get to the video yet. What do you mean the top is made of mahogany in the neck area and maple in the bridge area? Isn't the top all maple?

    No it's not. Half mahogany, half maple. OR the maple in the neck area is so thin that it's almost impossible to see. It's much more bigger around the bridge pickup.

    Do the guitar gods know that you have channeled Gary Moore without prior approval?

    After a few days the only bad thing I could say about the pedal is a little loss of basses comparing to my other OD's.

    For the rest, it's really good !

    Any chance you can demo a clean channel and then the pedal only? Hard to tell what's your amp and what is the pedal.

    Now for the million dollar questions: Can TGP members live with a stock, non-moddable tubescreamer?

    I believe I could, but I'd like to play it first!
