    Hi Guys
    I had just bought the James Lomenzo hyper bass pedal
    I really like this pedal I have an Boss sd1 with the keeley mod done to it and The James Lomenzo Pedal will blow that Boss pedal away I like the tone that I can get form this pedal I highly recommend it I have been looking for a good distortion pedal I really wanted the Darkglass b3k but didnt have the extra bucks to put out for that pedal then I seen that someone had listed all there pedals they have or did have and the guy said that the hyper pedal was almost like the b3k so I checked on youtube to see what the James Lomenzo pedal was like right away I loved the tone he was getting with this pedal so I decided to buy one

    Take care guys

    I've been using one for a couple years thru an Svt VR and now the new V4b. I love how it helps get the grit at lower volumes and makes your midrange sing! Also love the price compared to the B3K. I will never part with mine!

    While I also am fond of the Hyperdrive, perhaps you could use some punctuation next time you write about it.

    I have one too and recently sold my B3K....what! Love them sweepable Q and no loss in low end thunder at all. Something just really cool about the way it puts an edge on your tone. I don't leave home without it now.

    Love the JLo Hyperdrive. Really interesting take on a dirt pedal.
  6. It's a great pedal!
  7. I have one sitting in my draw next to me, I could never dial in the tone I wanted with it, but it was my first pedal ever <3

    Yup, picked up one for about $90 a couple of months ago, great pedal.

    As mentioned above I like it at lower gain settings, it really makes all your notes growl and jump out with no low end loss.

    I had one put flipped it after a while. Its the only piece of Ashdown gear I have ever flipped and after watching JLo's video on how he dials it in, I regretted it straight away!

    I picked up an Ashdown Drive + as a replacement recently and pretty satisfied with it, but may grab another Hyperdrive if one pops up.

    I've called the Hyperdrive a budget B3K, but it stacks totally differently.

    Up front, it can be dialed in to sound like a B3K does normally (low gain zingy midrange stuff). But stacked after other pedals it behaves totally different. The B3K is way more mid-scooped.

    I'm soon to be in the market for replacing the B3K I recently sold for fast money. But it will go after all the other dirt while the Hyperdrive will go before. I think the Hyperdrive works best as a gain driver in front of things, while I find the B3K works best as an additive effect or drive enhancer at the end of things.

    Just my little comparison of the two, since it keeps coming up.

    I can't wait to have both on my board. Can't wait. :hyper::bassist::hyper:
