    Hi i finaly swaped the tube of mine Chandler tubedriver for a 12 au7 type after reading this here. whoaa it realy came alive now, no more cold sound but a warm smooth drive, I put in front a TS9 when using it with a Strat or Tele and sometimes for that more sound with mine les Paul. I keep on changing but in the end this one is the overdrive I like more, its smoother and has more natural sustain IMHO. Its sound more natural for me then a OD box and it does clean up nice. Great thing a Tube driver:)
    Peace Strat58

    Try it with a 5751, it's even better!

    How is it different with these tube changes? I have one of these pedals and I'm thinking about experimenting with different tubes.

    I recently swapped the original 12ax7 out for a JJ 12au7 and it does make a fairly big difference. Much more usable as a low gain od. The 12ax7 was a bit fuzzy(not in a good way) but the new tube is much smoother.
