    Just got a new Mojo Drive and I find that I really like using it in the Middle position as a boost to put my amp in a nice OD and to push some of my overdrive pedals. Anyone else had experience with this?

    That's how I'm using mine at the moment. I run the gain around 10 o'clock and get a really nice, low gain bluesy OD (G&L Legacy > Gries 5). My Keeley Rat sounds great boosted by the Mojo Drive.

    Yes, I think this is the best feature of this pedal.

    I use it like that on the second channel of the Ceriatone. Awesome and quite Klon-like with the right amp.

    I just received my mojodrive yesterday. I like to run my OD's as boosts on an already overdriven amp. At low volume, the mojo was sounding good. There is a lot of gain on tap with this unit. I hope to be able to play at full volume some time this week and really get a feel for the pedal. Where are you guys running your level and tone knobs? Also, for you guys playing humbucker equiped guitars, how is your neck pick up responding?

    heard a friend of mine pumping his viroblux with the mojo exactly like that and it sounded incredible, even over the phone. so yeah it can/should be done!

    That's what I do with mine. I never use the other 2 settings.

    That's how I used it when I had it. Middle position for a boost.

    I used my mojodrive as a boost after my COT50 this weekend and it sounded great. It sounds good a lower volumes but it shines IMO when you get some volume. Strat>COT>MojoVibe> Divided by 13 EDT = good times.
