    anyone have one of these? I really really want one. Very versatile and sounds like a great blues overdrive. And for 35 dollars how can you miss. It’s definitely my next pedal

    It's a Fulldrive II Mosfet copy. Joyo now has theirs too, but it's $60.

    $28.99 on Amazon and free shipping. I just ordered one. That's a heck of a lot of tone for 30 bones.

    I've been using one for a while, and love it! Versatile, nice tones, with some familiarization, you can really get some great sounds out of it. Hard to best with the price they sell for! Thought about selling it a couple of times, to try something different, but keep coming back.

    One trick I really like to use with this pedal is to set the gain pretty much at "0". You can play with the switch to your liking, but the "Vintage" setting drops the volume quite a bit, so you'll have to turn up the volume knob. Really gives a nice, fat, "Clean" overdrive sound. SRV used to do the same thing with a TS, from what I've read. Then you can use the "Boost" section as your lead switch to kick it up a notch for soloing. Like I said before, a very versatile pedal.

    Looks like a great deal. I like the dirt pedals with a boost on them too.

    I am loving mine. Been playing with it every day for over a week now. Worth the price, easily.

    In his demos the pedal does wonderful sweet things with his Strat, but less so to my ears for the Tele. -That to me just sounded gritty, not at all sweet.

    Funny, too, because I am far more of a Tele tone guy.
