    The best dirt pedal in the history of dirt pedals.

    Is there any other change other then moving the trimpots to the the top fromt eh smaller unit? I have the trimpot version on order. I was thinking they are the same. I love what I have heard and love the 2 Skreddy units I have now (Top Fuel and Lunar Module). I like the smaller pedal board space of the origional.

    Moved the trimmers to the top, very cool. I love my Screw Driver. One of the best dirt pedals ever, I agree.

    ditto.
    still on my board, along with a "mayo";
    both see very regular use.
    stellar, musical, playable pedals, for me.
    ymmv.

    sh*t her it comes again ... GAS kreeping around my house :D
    I always liked the ScrewDriver but never liked the fiddling
    with the trimpots ... if only it would be possible to cram the DLX
    into a small enclosure ...

    awesome, just ordered one! Simply couldn't resist. I sadly had to sell my Screwdriver a couple of months ago to raise funds for a new guitar and I've been missing it badly ever since.
    Just got my shipping notification that my Skreddy Echo is ony it's way too! Awesome!

    You guys are killin' me! I'm very happy with my dirt pedal situation, but comments like this along with moving the trimpots pushed me over the edge. I took the plunge as well.

    So glad to see these officially available. I love love love my 5-knob Screw Driver, it is the only overdrive/distortion on my board. As much as I'm not a guy who keeps spares of any gear around, I really need to get a second one of these.

    The Screwdriver is my favorite dirt pedal ever! Had one for about 2 years now and it's crushed many other dirt pedals in direct a/b comparisons.
    Had it upgraded to a Deluxe a few months ago and it's even better now.:dude

    As nice as it would be to have the external knobs, I just can't justify the pedalboard real estate. I'll have to continue to carry my flat-head screwdriver around to adjust my other screwdriver.

    Can the Screwdriver do classic rhythm tones ala Townshend and AC/DC? Does the amp need to be on the verge of break up to get them? I'm very interested. Thanks.

    The Screwdriver is closer to an american style overdrive rather than a Plexi AC/DC type sound. More of an OD with the bite of a fuzz.

    do you find the trimmers need adjusting all that much really? i'd imagined them as "set and forget"...

    ive almost bought a SD like 6 times now, gotta resist the urge... too much OD as it is lol

    Yeah; I think the Top Fuel is more of that cranked Marshall kind of thing.
