    I'm rather curious about the diesel dawg pedal and from the few things I've heard about it, they seem to be good. I'm using a guv'nor now and am fairy happy with it. I really enjoy it overbearing almost piercing quality, where I use my bass xxl for more of that grinding, bassy dist. But I'm extremly curious how the Diesel Dawg sounds compared to the guv'nor (or even the bass xxl) for that matter.
    Thanks for any input.

    Have you ever heard a distorted GK? It's the same circuit.

    I head-to-head compared the two when I was in the market for a distortion. I thought the Diesel Dawg was cool, but actually found it a bit mild. I didn't like the fact that it was humungous, or that it was $100 more than the Marshall, so I picked the Guv'nor in the end. I'm glad I did, it has turned out to be a fantastic pedal.
