    This is a youtube I'm on from a few years back. In the opening first 40 seconds or so is all there is...
    Just played it for fun & realized what killer tone this pedal gets ...

    I'm going to say it's a Fulldrive 2.

    Hopefully not one of the Jetter pedals on Reverb!

    Aw man, you're right. A fun little guessing game is actually a thin slice of spam.

    That's totally bull ... didn't even think of it that way.
    So now I'll tell who the winner is early in the game because of what you two said or accused me of doing.

    Thought all the different reactions about what 'Dumble' -ish were really fun ...
    There's always gonna be someone who spins it negatively.

    You may not have, but hyping a pedal you have for sale typically comes across that way.

    Yeah ... in all truthfulness I did not intend to do such.
    It' such a passa' pedal now ... but was actually one of the best in achieving a Dumble tone ever!!

    So it's out in the open ... but those Jetter Red shift & Gain Stage ones were most excellent!!
    So much so ... I think that many of the modern day attempts at Dumblism aren't as good ...

    That's a GSR?! Wow! I've got one but I haven't been able to make it sound that good. What am I missing, besides chops? lol ! A bit of reverb needed for some warm hollowness? What amp were you using?

    Interesting.
    It reminded me a lot of my Koi OD, which is really smooth and warm, but I kinda knew it wouldn't be that.

    Never owned any Jetter, in my mind I always think of them as pretty much hi-gain vehicles, so that's interesting.

    In that youtube clip I'm playing it through a simple Peavey Classic 4x10.
    Set very, very clean ... have a barely noticeable amount of delay on it ...
    Plus there a Maxon CP101 compressor in front of the Jetter Red.

    The guitar is a Chambered Melancon Classic T with active EMG Alnico T pups.
