Fiinally found MY overdrive pedal
BATPAT, 11.03.2020
I almost play at home and sometimes jam with friends. I like classic rock and blues-rock tones - i like sometimes to play ( early ) metal. I own this pedal for a few hours by now...I was bored and not satisfied with my green OD pedal ( i will not mention the brand...) and the Neo pedal is just perfect to me. Very versatile, from soft crunch ( drive knob set at 9h00, and level at 12.00 ) to more dirty tones from drive set to 12 and further. Tone and Color knobs are very responsive, allowing to shape various soundings.
Here are some examples, playing on an orange Dark Terror with a light gain ( knob between 9 and 10 o'clock, it's almost clean ) - it only has got 1 channel :
With a single coil strat : easy to get great blues-rock tones, very natural, with a good sustain.
With humbuckers it took some more time ( just a little bit ) to get good settings ( in my opinion, better with drive on 2h00 and more ), great for early AC/DC tones ( Jaiiilllbreak - 1974 and so on... ), and classic rock tones...to some hard rock tones. If you prefer real Heavy Metal tones, it's better to have a real distortion pedal like the Metal Muff ( which i reserve for this).
Conclusion : great overdrive pedal, which desserves to get more known among guitar players....and with a very cool price thanks to the discount at Thomann.
Just watch some You Tube demos and buy one !

Not bad but a bit thin sounding
Dapapa, 08.08.2020
This sure is a TS style pedal. Want colored sound, get this one. Want transparent sound go elsewhere. I bought because of the Color knob as I wanted that control over Low end. Sure thing turn to the left and there is less mids and more lows but still not that much. This is NOT a Fat overdrive.

The worst thing on this pedal is its Switch! It has that loud CLICK which all of the cheap pedals have. Also you have to press hard to engage it. I dont like that!

When I place it before my Dumble style OD it will thin out the tone which I dislike. When I place it after the Dumble style OD then it does thin the sound a bit but it certainly reacts better and I can get close to that Neil Young tweed style overdrive.

I play it into my Egnater Tweaker with a Jensen Blackbird alnico speaker. I wish I could try it into my VOX AC15C1 but it so happens that my newly purchased Vox has some serious crackling issues (thomann is fixing this under warranty now).

Im not sure if Im keeping this Drive In or returning and getting the Nobels ODR Mini instead.

OD's are matter of taste really and also need to play nice with your other pedals and amps/speakers. So its a journey of finding that "One (or two, or three)" Overdrive that really is "your" tone.

The Drive In delivers top tones
Ronster, 07.06.2020
For fat cleanish tones, the Drive In is one of the best overdrive pedals I've ever used. This pedal produces a wide range of sounds. On my board, my Drive In has become an "always-on" pedal. Besides the delicious clean/kind of clean tones this device producers, it sounds great with every pedal I've ever used it with. I also like that the Drive In doesn’t take up a lot of space on my pedalboard. I have nothing negative to say about this device. Money well spent in my opinion. This is simply a Fantastic overdrive pedal.

Well build and great sounding drive pedal
PV5150, 02.09.2020
This is a very nice sounding overdrive pedal. The tone knob can really make it cut through the mix without sounding harsh. Its also really transparent and doesn't colour the sound of your amp te much. I think it had a little mid boost but not as much as a tube screamer. Sounds good with single coil guitars and humbuckers.
