The more I look at this, the more I appreciate the simplicity of it, it looks fun to use! Well done!!Was able to score, for a second time, an all black Timmy to finish off my monochrome board that includes my favorite pedals. I think I’m finally done swapping pedals on the board. Yeah, I’ll still buy one here and there to play around with for fun, but I think my main setup is finally feeling solid.

Nobels PRE-1 -> Boss PW-2 -> Ibanez STL -> Boss FZ-2 -> DOD FX42-B
One of many iterations of my bass pedalboard. This iteration (when the FZ-2 is used) I tend to like with my Schecter J-4 and Rickenbacker 4003. While this setup does cut my low end some the result is a cool bass tone. Sometimes I swap the overdrive with one of my Tel-Ray Morley wah pedals.
If I were to play my detuned Jazz bass strung with flats I'd usually swap the FZ-2 for my black Russian Big Muff and swap out the Ibanez Super Tube for my Ibanez Metal Screamer.
It is and it sounds amazing! The VOX is prefect for the crunchy, dirty tones & the JC40 has a nice crispness to it that works well with anything I run through it. Instant Hüsker Du/Sugar tones.Hmmmm... is this set up for dry/stereo wet? Makes sense! And if so, how does it sound?
I use the PW-2 the same way on both bass and guitar. I place it before the main distortion/fuzz pedal to give it extra gain and a bottom end boost for a bigger sound. On guitar the difference is noticeable when the PW-2 is on but not on the level as when I use it on bass which is why it's more prevalent on that board.I think this might be the first Power Driver that I have seen here.... I have one in the closet from the 90's...
anyone else using this? I’m not a bass player, but would be curious to see how others are (or are not) using the old PW-2...
