Valeton Drive/Dist Clones

    So I was browsing around looking new budget options for bass-friendly clones of overdrive and distortion pedals, and I stumbled on some offerings from Valeton. In particular these two caught my eye:

    https://www.thomann.de/intl/valeton_tube_engine_vintage_overdrive.htm (Tubescreamer clone)

    https://www.thomann.de/intl/valeton_darktale_vintage_distortion.htm (Rat clone)

    What I find interesting about these, mainly the TS clone, is it replaces the tone knob with a two band EQ for just a couple euros more than the Joyo/Harley Benton version (in Europe, in my experience, you'd have to double the price to get a TS clone with a bass knob).

    There's been a few fleeting references to Valeton on the site, but mostly regarding the Dapper Effect Strip, so I was wondering if anyone had any hands on experience with either of these?
