Posted on HCfx too. In case you don't want to read the whole review, here's a quick synopsis: Overall Verdict: An outstanding overdrive that does both lower gain and high gain drive with equal aplomb, and will delight those who use both single coil and humbucking guitars. 4.5 stars Highs: Extremely versatile overdrive, that can cover a wide range of tones, both the heavier 70s sounds, as well as nice bluesy overdrive. The gain from this pedal is incredibly amp like. Also has separate control for adding or subtracting bass that makes it a great option for both live and recording uses. Lows: If you're after a tubescreamer type pedal with a big mid hump, this won't do it, it has pretty neutral mids. Amp(s) used: Vox AC15c1, Fender Mustange III in the Bassman mode, basic eq settings. Guitars: CS Fender Tele, Epi Les Paul Tribute (Gibson '57 Classic+ bridge pickup, '57 Classic neck. Like many of us, I've been through quite a few overdrives, many of them good, but sometimes lacking in that sound I hear "in my head". I've been using a Mad Prof SHOD for lower gain, and have also used their Might Red Distortion, and the Little Green Wonder. All three are gone now. As are countless other overdrives. Fickle I guess, and not wealthy enough to keep them all. Enter the SuperDrive. I'll thank fellow forumite Jet Age Eric for giving this pedal a very hearty recommendation, even though it doesn't seem to get mentioned much in most conversations. We're going to change this! I've owned this pedal for several weeks now, and am past the honeymoon period. The controls on the SD are deceiving, and I'll make an important mention of one critical component that was included on my pedal, but seems to be absent on earlier versions, including the PGS and Gearmandude videos, and that is a 3 way toggle switch called "tone". It works kinda like the ZVex Distortron, and it impacts the low end frequencies. Left, it is the basic overdrive sound, bass in neither cut nor boosted. Middle position, bass is cut some, for a less congested sound depending on your amp, guitars, position on guitar, and the type of pickup. Useful for live playing where you want to cut through the mix, and not interfere with the bass player. And lastly, the right position has boosted bass, and can make a single coil guitar sound beefy, even in the bridge position, and a humbuckers bridge position will sound full range, yet still have the bite and clarity of a bridge position pickup. The other controls, volume - which is has a lot of, yet still useful for home use, a big plus for me. Last two controls are extremely interactive, gain, and presence. The presence control is a low cut filter according the instructions, and it affects the treble and some upper mids. The key here, is to crank it all the way up, this is the normal setting. The more you increase gain, then you start to turn the presence control ccw position. A little movement of this control does a TON to change the tone of this pedal. CW position will be the brightest and most open, with the least amount of compression, but again, it all depends where you have the gain. At noon, the presence can sound quite dark, and more compressed, especially if you have the gain at under noon. It is possibe to get a bad sound if you turn the gain down too much, and the presence too low. How much gain does this pedal have? A ton, more than just about any "overdrive" I've used before. But it's range is really incredible. With no gain at all, in the ccw position, with the volume turned up some, presence cw, you get a nice slightly dirty boost. Not totally clean, although I don't run my amps clean either, and who the hell really uses an overdrive to work as a clean boost anyway. It adds a little grit, which is cool. At about 9 oclock, the overdrive is definitely there, and it sounds great. Wonderful for a heavier bluesy sound, with no fizz or artifacts left behind. Also important to note, this pedal is really touch sensitive, and it works wonderfully with your guitars volume control. Turn up the gain to noon, and you're in heavy crunch land. Dial back the presence a little, and you get that nice Marshally sound, on both a tele or Les Paul. It's more distinct with a tele though, and it takes more gain to get it to sound nasty. With a LP, gain can be set lower, and you still get a nice crunch. Dialing back your volume control gives you so much control on the gain structure, from basically clean, to full on rawk. You could use this live with the pedal always on, and just control it from your guitars volume control. With the gain control at noon, you are in rock land for a LP, and it has a nice crunch on the Tele. Past noon, and you get into distortion territory for humbuckers. Turn the presence back to noon or even less, bridge pickup, gain at 2 oclock, and it is heavy, in a good kinda way. Something the MRD should have sounded like, but never did. And the gain all the way up, just give you a bit more of everything. It can get a bit noisy though with single coils. And the tone switch as I said, is very interactive. If you want deep, hard hitting low end, right position. If it sounds flubby, and you really just want the upper mid range/higher end to shine through, middle position, and left position will be a nice compromise of the two settings. I have found this pedal ideal for an EL84 based amp, that usually has the mids accentuated anyways. This pedal does not have extra mids, like a TS type pedal. If you need that, this might not be your thing. Otherwise, if you want a warm sounding overdrive that does everything, from nice biting bluesy overdrive with single coils, or a really heavy hitting crunch from your humbuckers, this pedal will delight you. At $175, it is well worth it, and really should be mentioned in every conversation that starts with, "recommend me a new overdrive" because this one can hold it's own with anything out there. I hesitate to post the PGS clip, because while it does sound like this, to an extent, it has a lot more sounds to it too, and also the PGS pedal does not have this 3 way tone switch that I find so very helpful. Also, the strat demo didn't sound that great to me, could be the strat. I liked the tele at the end, and the LP in the beginning is good too, although Andy is able to turn down the presence more than I do, and still sound good. http://proguitarshop.com/store/effects-distortion-pedals-c-602_12/solidgold-fx-super-drive-p-2014 TL;DR. P.S., also looks pretty cool too, here's a stock photo.
