Keeley Phat modded Boss Blues Driver....
Any thoughts on this pedal? Anyone have one...how is it?
I have it. It is a substantial improvement on the stock version. I find myself taking my Tim and Zen out more these days
I actually think I preferred mine stock. The mod made it smoother, taking away some of the character. Couldn't find a use for it, sold it. I like my OCD quite well, depending on which amp and how cranked, if that helps. I'd rather hear output tubes working, then maybe add a pedal.
is it a ts type of pedal or more of a transparent OD?
Not TS, somewhat transparent
It was a nice OD...too transparent for me though. I like my modded SD-1's better. A bit more character.
I had a Keeley BD and it wasn't for me. Sounded too scouped to me. Would not cut thru the mix. Traded it back to my local Keeley dealer and got a Keeley TS808 true bypass. 100 times better for me. If you are looking for a TS style, you got to check the 808 out. Not cheap, but worth it.
the OD's I currently use are a cot50, a fish factory, and a howie, the ts sounds for me are covered with the fish factory, I'm actually looking for something transparent and bluesy..
Transparent and blusey... Tim and Zen will get you there for sure
search is your friend.
