I currently own a FD2 for my smooth overdrive setting and thought about getting a Blues Pro for a grittier drive. Is buying the blues pro the way to go or would it be redudant with the FD2 and I should look in another direction?
I've owned both pedals. The FD2 mosfet edition is very similar Blues pro particularly when booster is engaged and gain is past 9 o'clock. The Blues pro got a lot more gain on tap. The mids are a bit stronger on FD2 in standard mode. Personally I think FD2 is much better pedal when running it through a hot tube amp. I still own Blues pro and generally use it through a clean amp for late night jamming. I can get some great tweed tones out of it through my Blackface Fender.
So for someone running a clean Fender amp (me) you prefer the Blues Pro? I have heard the FD 2 can sound thin unless your amp is already overdriving...true/false? Do you use the Fuzz switch with the Blues Pro- I'm interested in this pedal- good features and price
One pedal you may wanna check is Para-drive. Its like cross between the FD2 and BP. It sound great through a clean and dirty amp. I may dump my BP for one.
