Finally got a chance to try one out and wasn't all that impressed. It did sound somewhat better with a TS808 stacked before it, much creamier & thicker, but still lacking somehow. Also tried it with a Giggity after it, but didn't get much from that combo either. By itself, really disappointing, nothing like the demos. No where near the EJ /JB sound I had dreamed of. I was playing at lower volumes, so maybe that was part of it, but volume wasn't that low. Any suggestions other than get a Dover Drive?

Thanks.

I played one last week while overdrive shopping for a friend, I thought it sounded pretty great. It was a very one trick pony in that it's only useful for getting that thick singing bonamassa/johnson lead tone. It's a great sound but not always useful.

I dig mine. Just wish it had a mids knob, but that's about it. I have a BK Butler Tube Driver to compare it against and it holds up.
