    Hey guys!

    I heard of this pedal, and am wondering if its any good. I'm looking for a good pedal that will give "guitar-like" distorion (basically, that kind of really heavy distortion sound you can get from one of those roland cube guitar amps). Its also a huge bonus that its also a DI box.

    Has anyone had any experience with them?

    Will it deliver the kind of distortion i want, or am i better off buying a DI and a guitar head with distortion?

    I bought the Hartke for distortion & was very disappointed. Just high end shreddy....no warmth. I did like some of the tone shaping features on it, but have reverted to using the tube drive on my amp & am keeping the Hartke for a backup DI box.

    Want good bass distortion?! Buy a FULLTONE BASSDRIVE....

    It's the shizzle (as the kids say).

    I have just ordered one of these pedals, hopefully it will come next week!
  5. I was hoping this would be some mystical pedal that made all basses sound like an ATK, that would be nice
