Mini Mooer Pedals

Got 2 in the mail today.... the Hustle Drive (ocd clone) and the Black Secret (rat clone). I will put them through the paces at band practice tonight and let you know the verdict.

A little background, my main overdrive is a Fulltone OCD and I've used a few rats in the past. My initial impressions (especially of the Hustle Drive) at apartment volumes is that it's pretty damn close. Ironically, the Mooer has a ridiculous amount of output.... but tone wise, it's very very close. I'm excited to see how these things hold up with a drummer volume.

Stay tuned!

Can't speak on behalf of the OP, but I emailed them a week or so ago and they emailed me back with information to order direct from them pretty quickly.

Hey guys, finally back from a day of recording and practice....

Yea, I just sent an e-mail to the contact link on the website and they said they had 6 or so models that were ready for sale. Each pedal was $60 plus shipping, and it got to my place (Denver) from China in like 5 days! Pretty quick!

The Black Secret is definitely my favorite. Thick, chewy distortion..... reminds me of my old RAT. Great definition, dynamics, and a whole plethora of tones.

I think I need a bit more bonding time with the Hustle Drive though. Upon initially playing it, there are definitely a lot of similarities between it and an OCD, but I can't believe it's an exact copy.... more like an offshoot. I could coax similar OCD tones out of it, but a lot of the knobs have different ranges on both pedals.

For example, I usually have my tone on my OCD about 2/3rds.... the Hustle Drive tone knob had to be maxed to achieve the same sort of sound.... so it's definitely a darker pedal than the OCD. I'll try and do a youtube A/B test in a day or so in order for you guys to hear!

Great demo! How did you get the crunchbox and fuzz clones?

When I e-mailed them, they said the only 4 they had available were the OCD, RAT, DS-1, and Chorus pedals?
Yeah, it was strange, i basically had to extract it from them. I emailed them and said "do you have a fuzz pedal" and then they'd reply with what it was.
Then i said "do you have a tremolo", then they replied with the trelicopter. It seemed like they were avoiding giving me the list of all the options...

Dang... the only one I'm keeping an eye out for is the Pitch Box and it looks like that is yet to be released...
