How similar are these pedals? which one is a better cleanish boost?
fairly similar.....same idea, same concept and goal.
SD=adds a ....sheen, or an enhancing hi-fi quality.
SD=subliminal compression....(is it even on?)
RC=more gain (which is not much) than the SD
SD=more clean headroom....more boost
Both work great "on all the time"
SD=blindingly bright LED
RC=could not dial out the gain and still get enough boost
Both are stellar, quality boosts,
I sold the RC (and a klon) and
kept the Sex Drive.
get the sex drive..
I play through a early 60's fender bassman. Will the sex drive give my amp a little hair for blues? How well will it stack with my Honey bee or Eternity?
Has anyone compared the Sex Drive to the Zvex Super Duper 2 in 1? I love the zvex but the noise is starting to get to me - the Sex Drive seems like a good alternative
I really, really liked the Sexdrive but found it just a little shrill on a Tele bridge pickup which is what I use most of the time with my particular amp rig.
I found that I could dial that out better with the RC.
The Sexdrive is a bit more 'Texas' and has a fantastic vibe to it. If I was using strat neck pickups or 'buckers, or a more driven amp tone I probably would have gone the other way.
I must try one again just to make sure!
I bought both, and kept the RC, the SD was just kinda blah with my rig (tele and Matchless). The RC just has a cool quality to it, almost everyone I know that has one keeps it on all the time. :AOK
I would say the RC for this application.
I also sold a Super Hard On, kept the Sex Drive, while the zvex
provided "zing and sizzle", the SD had more charecter, body and
clean....boost, for me. Different pedals for sure. The zvex tightens
and focuses, while the SD adds oomph.
The Bad Bob Boost pwns both of them for half the price, just my opinion...
