    Sorted, sorry about that! didnt seem to work in Mozilla Firefox (for some reason) but works fine in IE

    The original sounds soooo much better then the GV2 which ive tried and hated.

    It still doesn't work.

    1. Don't use freewebs. Try something like purevolume or myspace.
    2. Don't name files things like "my guv'nor with the gain at 5 and the bass at 6.mp3" Name it like "guvnor_gain5"

    I would lvoe to hear it, and there's some suggestions to get it to work.

    you guys have a weird idea of what good distortion sounds like. But maybe that's because I play metal, with a pick. Not really feeling the funk fuzz.

    Well, when I think of distortion, I think of some sizzle, something that gnarls the sound.

    Which my Guv'nor 2 is able to get perfectly. I think it's weird that the two clips posted show it more as a fuzz. It's probably one of the more versatile overdrives I've tried.

    I don't know where I'm getting at... maybe I'm saying that the clips don't really show what it's capable of. Not that they're not appreciated. But if I had heard those clips before buying my Guv'nor I wouldn't have bought it.

    its and overdrive not a fuzz or distortion.

    it sounds better when i plug it into my 300watt amp

    and the treble is on full.
