    Great Overdrive

    Great pedal! As close to what I wanted that I can get at a great price. i out this before a transparent compressor; joyo "pipebomb" and together I get what I want. Can't wait to put an distortion in between. I love it on my G&L tribute fallout. I'm sure I'll love it on my epiphone junior too. It turned out better than I thought it would.

    Can't go wrong

    This is by far my favorite overdrive pedal. I use it as my first stage overdrive so I keep it fairly light, but you can get higher gains. It is very transparent, which is super nice too. I absolutely love this pedal. You can't go wrong with it.

    The more a person gets into pedals, two criteria are usually evaluated for a new addition to the signal chain: How does it change the frequency response ? and how does it play with the guitar, effects, and amp?

    On frequency response, the EM Drive lived up to it's billing. I plan to use it at the end of my chain as a boost when I need to get out in front of the mix.

    On playing well with others, I had a lot of fun running a Strat into an EH Big Muff Fuzz, into the EM Drive, and finally to a Hot Rod Deluxe.

    I am happy with the drive and recommend it to others.

    I also need to give praise to Sweetwater. They seemed to be as excited as I was to get the pedal, and made sure it got here fast.

    One of the best transparent overdrives on the market today. In certain setups this pedal can take away a little bit of top end, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. And it sounds absolutely killer as a Bass guitar overdrive as well. Definitely a good pedal to have in your arsenal. Emerson does things the right way.
