If you can't find something you like about this pedal, you probably just haven't used it for long enough!
This drive is an absolutely wonderful thing to have if you're working with limited budget or space. I needed a pedal that could do a lot of things well, without having to break the bank, and this little number delivered way beyond my expectations!
First of all, the independent boost circuit is really what makes this thing special. Being able to get a clean boost, or some extra dirt depending upon the situation is extremely useful. Not having to buy a separate boost allows you to save some money as well as some space on your board.
How good does the drive sound? Well, that's a tough question to answer, because this pedal is capable of such a wide variety of sounds. "90's" is your classic "Full Drive 2" sound, "Wide Asym" is the closest this drive gets to "transparent" and can work well if you need a lighter sound. "CC" is a really gritty (and REALLY loud) setting that just offers the drive's natural tone with no clipping enabled. I've found uses for all 3 settings, but since this is my stage 3 drive, I leave it on "CC" most of the time.
It's also built like a tank! It's made of solid metal, so no need to worry about damaging it on the road. It's price point is also pretty fantastic, as I've seen similar models (think JHS Kilt or similar) running for well over double the price.
Overall, I really don't have anything bad to say about this pedal!
