    This green thing is a riot !
    It perfectly handles a low C (I only have 4 strings) without getting blurry or loosing punch, EQ controls are damn efficient and control grit on both ends of the spectrum, drive is extremelly progressive and only gets very angry in the last 3rd of its course. Before that, you have a very wide panel of slightly overdriven tones.
    It's not as versatile as a Fulltone BassDriver but in the light OD department I'd say that it's just as good.

    Sorry, it isn't mine.
    I just extensively test tried it this afternoon.
    If I didn't own my Fulltone, I'd definitely would consider it.

    Aww. :(

    How does it compare to your Fulltone in the "light OD" department? Would you say they're about the same or did you like the sound of one more than the other?

    It colors the tone of the bass a bit more than the FT.
    It's also much more progressive so you get a wider range of settings.
    The Low/High knobs do a great job too.
    For example, I got a creamy blues tone by pushing Lows and Drive while cutting a bit of Highs. clear and powerful attack with rumbling low end. very nice.
    It doesn't get as intense as the Fulltone in Boost mode though.
    I could match a 70s Roger Glover fuzzy tone too.

    I think I'll stick with my DOD 250, but can you compare them.
