Nice, tasty OD pedal @ sweet price,
This review is from: Danelectro CTO-2 Cool Cat Transparent Overdrive V2 Effect Pedal (Electronics)
This OD pedal does all I need it to do. I have two small tube amps, and was experimenting with OD pedals. I borrowed a Maxon OD808 and a Fulltone FullDrive2MosFet. A few ground rules: I have two small tube amps - a vintage Silvertone 1451 and a Laney "Lionheart" L5T-112. And I play classic Chicago-style blues--so I'm not looking for wild-ass overdrive. I found none of the pedals produced tone I couldn't get overdriving the Silvertone. Pushing the Drive channel on the Laney, and cranking the CTO2, I get tones that sound (to me) like the last Metallica concert I attended. For me, the utility is as a real nice "click and go" boost for soloing, that sounds just like pushing the drive channel-without needing to stop playing to twist knobs. This pedal sounded every bit as good as as the Maxon and Fulldrive--to my ears--for about 1/3 the price. A great little stompbox at a great price. Petty darn sturdy construction, too.
