Great price for a great sound
03.04.2017
I have always loved the sound of the original tube screamer unfortunately they are very expensive so I bought the East River Drive and I wasn't disappointed.

Pros:

- It has a wide range of tone for an OD pedal, you can easily get a subtle clean boost or a dirtier distortion sound. Very versatile.
- Great tube screamer clone for the price.
- It works well when stacked with other overdrive pedals.
- Pedalboard friendly.

Cons:

- You wont get a fully transparent drive with this pedal
- As all of EHX pedals the switch is a bit noisy, when you press it you'll hear an hard clicking noise.

I was quite excited when this pedal came out and when I saw the competitive price offered by Thomann I took it into serious consideration.

I did not own a TS808 clone as such - I had a couple typical ODs and transparent ODs and was quite happy with them. There weren't too may online demos of the East River Drive (ERD) and not any descenting voices, so I took advantage of my Thomann review voucher and grabbed the ERD.

I was quite excited about getting this for some reason - maybe because it had great graphics! All my other pedals are rather plain by comparison!

As usual it arrived within 3/4 days and in good shape. I set about trying out some settings and combinations of equipment and it stood up well to anything it was played with and put through - even some stacking - particularly with a Joyo Deluxe Crunch - massive room/stage filling presence!

The most exciting find for me was that with a Gibson les Paul and a Cornford EL34 equipped Roadhouse amp, it is classic early 1970s Marshall tone. Think Spiders from Mars' Mick Ronson, Hawkwind, Humble Pie etc. Massive square-toned Marshall drive - lovely!

As per usual, I am of the habit of taking pics of the settings that sound best for me against the specific gear and then print these out and place them in a folder for an 'at a glance' guide. What often becomes apparent is that the same dial shapes appear over and over again. Is true here too but no matter where this pedal is dialled you get great usable tone.

A classic Ibanez Tubescreamer or Colorsound Tonebender can fetch many times its original price from guitarists in search of the ultimate killer tone and sustain.
