For "fat" things

Andreas718, 12.05.2013
With my favorite overdrive (Wampler Euphoria) I am very satisfied. The problem is however: either I put him on moderate drive - so he sounds best - and renounce fiercely Zerre or I put him on full Lotte and then he sounds then in the down-regulation with the guitar volume potentiometer in the low-gain range not so good As he really could.

The solution:
I let my favorite overdrive do what he does best and take for the fat things the - tatatata! - Fat Drive. The sound is clearly clearly in Richting fully over-steered tube amp. That is, he has more than enough gain, but remains overall in the blues rock / classic rock range. For my needs just right.

The sound quality is great: solid and clear. Far from the soft tubescreamer sound, I'd say. However also very honest. The fat drive continues at all times and can be easily controlled with the guitar volume. I use it on the one hand for lead sounds and on the other hand for riffs for "Money for nothing" or "She's gone" (Eric Clapton).

Not good I find the connection for the power supply. This is located on the right side next to the input jack socket and is far out of the housing, so that inserted power supply plug and angled plug plug into the enclosure.

Wiedrum praiseworthy is the price. This could be 100 euros higher for the quality of the Fat Drive, as is usual with almost all other boutique pedal manufacturers.
In the price is even an 18-volt power supply included!

Battery operation is not possible.

OD transparent and bump-free in mdiums

Gopsy, 05.03.2013
This pedal is very good, only the location of the adapter is incorrectly placed. In low-gain mode, we get a very transparent crunch without bump in the mediums much like a boost. The pedal does not color the sound but does not embellish it either (less creamy than an OCD in my config). With humbuckers the sound is really very thick and can become too serious with some guitars even if the tone setting avoids a loss of definition too important. On simple coils, there is immediately more room for maneuver and therefore more versatility.
In high gain mode, we are more on a classic OD that sends heavy with a very natural tube sound. Too bad we can not switch from one mode to another via a footswitch.
I cascade this pigtronix that I always use in low-gain either with an SD1 upstream on the clear channel to add grain, or with the saturated channel of my Blackstar 40w to bring a new color to the sound. It cascades very well and the sound varies quite according to its location. In a rock register everyone should be able to find a sound that pleases him with this pedal.
