    My Plexi solution

    On a clean amp sounds very much like a Plexi (18v mode), can sound a bit fuzzy with some amps but a little eq'ing cures such problem. Nice warm sound.

    On 9v mode, its very compressed. Anyone that picks light or who wants sensitivity when shredding (like for tapping) will love the 9v mode.

    The Glove fits

    I purchased the Glove from Sweetwater and it does sound like an overdriven Marshall amp. I used it at a gig and it performed like a champ. Very smooth distortion for leads and chords. I have several overdrives and distortion pedals including a Fulltone Plimsoul, T-Rex Yellow Drive, Digitech Distortion Factory and Bad Monkey as well as a T-Rex Totenshlager. The Glove sounds great through a clean amp and gets the job done nicely. I recommend!

    Beautiful Pedal

    EH did a fantastic job with the OD Glove. A wide variety of distortion is what you get with this one. Simply put, if you use this pedal with the clean channel on your amp and you want a dirty sound this will deliver. Unlike so many distortion pedals, the OD Glove will retain it's beautiful, thick overdriven distortion at high volume levels. No shrill, no loss of it's full spectrum of tone. If you are looking for a pedal to push your already overdriven amp, this isn't it.

    More distortion than overdrive

    People give this pedal a bad rating at times because they bought it as an overdrive pedal. I watched a few demo's and realized that it was more of a distortion pedal than an overdrive so I bought it with that in mind. To me it sounds like an older Marshall, I had a JCM 800 at one time and this is like it, without all the hum and feedback. I love this pedal. I run it behind the East River Drive which I use for my Overdrive.
    Run it on the 18V setting and treat it as a distortion pedal and you will not be disappointed, plus the price is incredible.

    Exactly what I was looking for. Great little pedal. Sweet OD to nasty distort. I can set the eq up on it and use the guitar vol. Very nice and great sweetwater team also (as always)

    Very good pedal. A&B the Glove and it's a want to be to the cream colored compulsive one. If you know what I mean. However that being said when I A&B the two I heard a difference not in tone but in sustain. The tone is almost identical from what I could here. When I set both pedals with the same settings the compulsive one had just a little more sustain. Just a little. Sustain variance was clocked in approximately 2-3 seconds longer for the the compulsive one. Added a little more gain on the Glove and the sustain was closley matched. The cost for the Glove is hard to pass up. Honestly I was very impressed with the Glove. It sounds very good. I would recommend this to any musician at any level to save money and have a very good sound.

    Nice dirty high gain distortion. If I had to make a choice I'd rate the tic electronics dark matter slightly higher for sound quality. This one does what it's supposed to and the price is right. EHX is a good company and can do no wrong by me. This was a nice bridge to the new Soul Food pedal which is my all time favorite EHX product.

    Great pedal for the price!

    This pedal can do it all. It has so much gain capability yet it doesn't lose tone when you play it clean. If you're looking for a cheap pedal this is the one you want. If you're looking for an expensive pedal you still should take a look at the Glove! I have an OCD (which the pedal is modeled after) and they sound nearly identical.

    Excellent pedal for achieving higher gain, colors the sound just right without having to push the amp, especially if you need to play it at bedroom volumes.

    OD Glove

    Very clean. Will go from zero to a warm overdrive with no bumps. It is not a fuzz or distortion. It is a nice addition to a deluxe reverb and strat.

    The Glove

    Takes a little tweaking but overall it sounds good depending what amp is used. Mine came with a very weak battery. Never got a replacement for it when I spoke to the folks @ Sweat Water. So I purchased an alkaline 9 volt battery for it. No big deal. It works. The 9 volt to 18 volt switching is almost unnoticeable. Overall not a bad backup for my OCD Version 4. Cost is a plus.

    "Glove slap distortion" not overdrive

    Not an over drive, very little clean boost then a huge amount of distortion which is what it should be called "Glove slap distortion". also tone switch off is so mid scoped and compressed its worthless imo.

    Though this was a Soul Food Plus I was wrong

    I bought a soul food and thought I want the same thing with some more distortion range, I was wrong. This is a rather high gain pedal (NOT AN OVERDRIVE AT ALL)with a very touchy gain control. Goes from mild blues to blistering high gain from about 8-9 oclock and just is slightly more distorted from 10oclock to full gain. The tone knob out is so scoped its unusable for low gain and engaged its close to flat eq with a little bass hum. Im going to get another soul food and use two for higher gain and one for mild boost.
