    I'm kinda late to the party,, well, actually, I haven't gotten there, yet .

    From my 'net research, it seems he makes the best ToneBender Mk II clone, around.

    I see he's discontinued the Scary Face, but has another Fuzz in
    the works, soon to be released that has all the great Fuzz tones
    combined .

    The Fuzz Royale/Cheeze , , also the Dirt Royale w/Cheeze sounds
    equally cool.


    What's the verdict Proanalog users ?
    I think my first foray will probably be the MK II

    I love my Dual Drive. If I had to choose just one OD, it would be the pedal.

    People are going to think we're a cult, but f 'em!

    Dual Drive
    Supa Quack
    MKII
    Power Driver

    There's some great custom pedal builders out there, and Scotty's up there with the best of them.

    Scary Face: Owned one for a while, very very good Fuzz Face. Much better IMHO than the MJM London I used to own. Didn't hang on to it though...I've never connected 100% with a traditional FF circuit. May revisit this one.

    MKII: Borrowed cubb65's for a bit, and was thoroughly impressed. A very nice take on the MKII circuit, and right up there with my D*A*M MKII. Sounds like Scotty can tweak these to suit. Is he making them anymore?

    Dual Drive: Absolutley awesome and inspiring. So hard to describe...natural, extension of the amp, enhancing, simple and effective. Makes me VERY curious about Scotty's upcoming original designs.

    Power Driver: Want one so bad I can taste it :dude And a Supa Quack for dessert.

    I've got a "few!"
    Every one is a keeper. Really meant to be gigged with. They are impressive when used alone but really shine in a performing and/or studio situation. You can tell they weren't tested with an amp on low volume. They were meant to blend into an amp that is competing with other sound sources. Scotty hears stuff much in the same way I do or else I wouldn't dig his gear so much.
    If nothing more, they are really solid, built to last, working man's gear for folks who want something better than what's commonly available.

    Waiting on the Power Driver for a few weeks now and will be selling some gear in September and this autumn to raise cash for the newer pedz he's got in the works.

    I have the Dual Drive and Supa Quack and wouldn't trade either one of them for anything else. They are the best of the best :cool:

    Absolutely the Best!!!

    I have the Dual Drive and Power Driver with a Dirt Royale w/ Cheeze on the way.

    They are dynamic, 3-dimensional and so full of drippingly good tone. They do sound best at high volume through non-master amps.

    I use PAF les Pauls with 1959 Super Lead amps and I have gone through a ton of dirt boxes to get here. Scotty just has a vintage mojo in his pedals that kills all else with virtually no hiss or other noise.

    Now if I could only convicne him to make me a Boost Royale with Cheeze(3 prototypes are in existence) and a a MkII which I think is discontinued. I will really not use many other dirt boxes from now on.

    I'm still waiting for the clips and descriptions of the newest pedals to woo me, the way the writeups on the dual drive had me chomping at the bit.

    I had to have that dual drive and still love it right between my Tim and my Cornish G2 fuzz.
