    I'd be interested to hear your opinions on the Joyo vs. the VT vs. whatever other OD pedals you have kicking around.

    There's no getting around the fact that the demon graphics are CHEESY lol! I'm just leaving it be, find slight humor in using a demon-drive with my worship band

    Thx bro...this is my most recent pic. Got rid of the Morley for a Loopmaster Micro AB, though. It'll change here and there based on what I need and what I feel like lugging, but this is the most recent version of it:

    Funny Jimmy, in Sept. 2008 you posted this:

    "I haven't tried the Linden, but it's just the Baxandall tone controls like what's on a B-15. There's no reason it would sound tubey on its own. It will certainly manipulate an amp's EQ like a B-15, but that's it. But the VT does awesome recreations of B-15 tones. You can even make it imitate mic'ed tones pretty well. Pedal of the future."

    I see your board, and you now have the Linden, but not the VT Pedal! How times change things, eh? What made you give up the VT Pedal for the Linden?

    Thanks,
    Sean
     
  13. That looks awesome. Did you take pics of the process of doing this, or just the end result of the work?

    Good point, but I understand people wanting to avoid any such images.

    The silver one is a Greedtone OD clone that JohnK made and then added a switch to give me two different high rolloffs. Love it! And the one next to it is a Team Awesome Fuzz Machine.

    Good question, Sean. The noticeable compression when I use my tube amps was the big reason, plus I only have a VT Deluxe now and I wanted a smaller board. I still like it very much otherwise, but I decided that with a REDDI and Ampeg tube amps, I just didn't need it like I used to.

    And the Linden is an EQ only for my upright.

    The pedal boosts my signal when it is bypassed... it's advertised as a true bypass on Amazon, but it obviously is not. It doesn't color the tone at all just boosts it by about 3db... haven't dug into it further to see why this is happening because I'm putting it in a parallel loop anyway... it still sounds good though.
     
  18. I LOVE my little Joyo Ultimate Drive! I have it on as my primary sound for one of my bands. I also got a Joyo Analog Delay after being so impressed with the UD, it is another definite keeper. The construction is really rugged too, you can step on them with confidence :bassist:

    I have not had this problem with it but I would assume there can be many variables when you're talking about a pedal this affordable since it's probably VERY mass manufactured
