I’ve always been a “get the dirt from the amp type of player” Never really found an overdrive pedal that I’ve liked. Most I’ve tried over the years have just seemed to zap the guitar & amps natural tone. I was recommended to try one of these & I’m very pleased! I’ll probably need it when we get back to gigging when I’ll be turning up attenuator too near or full wattage on my Fender Tone Master Deluxe Reverb. The Electro Harmonix East River Drive.. This Tube screamer type pedal does just what I want. Just a bit of dirt without compromising the amps sound/tone.. I’m happy!
