Does exactly what i need it to do

By PhoenixAsh

I got this pedal for a little extra boost and saturation on my leads, and it works with a good tone too. The one real down side to this pedal is its huge amount of feedback, but with the way i have it set up in my rig, it doesn't really affect me.So for what i use this pedal for, it works out great, however i wouldn't use it to get any distortion for a rhythm tone, though i like to get my main tone from my amp.

This thing is NOT the gimmick it looks like on the surface. I needed another overdrive pedal for my bass and I heard good things about the Blood Drive so I figured I'd give it a shot, and honestly it is one of the best purchases I've made here.It can range in tone from dark to aggressive, and from clean to dirty, and from one end to the other it sounds superb when I run my Squier P/J bass through it, and it won't rob your instrument of any of its character. For as good as this pedal sounds, I'm currently at a loss to figure out what other FX I could possibly use on its chain.One of the most incredible aspects of this pedal is its long, clean sustain. It adds some amazing harmonics to my higher strings that I'm not even sure I can replicate with my studio software. This thing's got even more potential than I'd even imagined.Concerning structural quality, it's not the MOST solid pedal I've laid my hands on, but it IS pretty sturdy - no rattles or weak spots, and even the battery (no, not included) is locked in place. Don't let the facade fool you - this is not a toy! Simply awesome all around.


Really Good


from New York, NY

I got this for a metal band I'm in. But when I plugged this in, the distortion was perfect for classic rock or blues. Better than any other stompboxes (TS-808, Boss Pedals). Unfortunately, it's not that great for medal, although its good, but for classic rock...WOW. THIS REALLY GOOD FOR A BEGINNER OR ANYONE ELSE. FIVE STARS our of five!!!


Great Bass Distortion Pedal Actually!

By Ethereal Bassist

from Wisconsin

My guitarist actually had this sitting around and I decided to plug it in to my amp with my bass. I turned it on and was shocked at how awesome it sounded. Hes selling it, so I actually might buy it. I have it running through a Fender Bassman 25 with a Fender Precision and it sounds amazing. If you're a bassist looking for a good distortion pedal this is probably a good deal then actually getting an expensive bass distortion pedal.

so I've owned this pedal for about a weekand it ownsI've been a faithful ts 808 user for yearsbut this just blows it awayI'm using a rocktron gainiac preamp and a mesa 2:90 power, to play metal of course, and I like my gain full and saturated, where the tube screamer could lack, this picked up the slackjust a tad more gain to really overdrive my preamp and make is screamI'd highly recommend it, but only to overdrive your amp, I'm not a fan of the straight distortion tones, seeing as the clean channel on the rocktron can really mud things upI play a ibanez prestige 7 string, and like most 7 string guitarists, like my bass strong this takes care of that without really mudding upgreat pedal


Very versatile distortion.

By OFAxeMan

Let me say this straight away: I HATE digital distortion pedals. I've suffered through a DOD Grunge pedal, a Boss GT-8 (great for multieffects but the distortions sound awful), and a Ross Distortion (which was analog and sounded decent, but it was very old and worn out). I wanted something with the warm creamy sound of analog, but was also capable of a lot of gain. Cue this little beauty. I was offset by how death metal-y it looks, but I tried it out and couldn't believe my ears. This thing will go from a nice, bluesy hint of overdrive to a huge crunch (but still rich and warm) depending on how you play with it. It'll work in different situations, on my full stack (my Traynor head is a single-channel) I use it as my primary distortion, but on my Fender combo (2-channel) I use it as an overdrive, which gives a nice little hint of gain on the clean channel and on the dirty channel gives just the right boost to cut a solo through the mix. This is a very useful pedal, it'll really work for any style except maybe death metal (one of the few styles where digital distortion is probably better). It's built like a tank, it's true bypass, the glow in the dark knobs are a nice touch. I gave it a 9 on Features just because I would've liked to have seen this thing have an actual EQ on it instead of just a top-end boost knob. Otherwise, it's perfect.

Hi, I purchased this one a week ago from here at a really nice price, I tried it with my American strat and also with a gibson studio, this pedal is amazingly good sounding, I couldn't believe it when I heard it... you can play metal, any sort of rock and blues too, I feel like this pedal is different nothing I have ever heard before definitely something amazing I have never tried a pedal like this before and I have a lot of pedals !!! 100% analog , true bypass and amazing quality what else can you ask for !!!


Zombie Goodness

I was looking to pick up a pedal. i tried about 5 and saw that they had the blood drive on sale so i tried it. wow! I got the exact distortion I've been looking for, a really dead tone. not like it doesnt have one, but like when I play, it reminds me of zombies lol! very sturdy and excellent quality, only thing it needs is maybe one more tone adjustment. definetly recommended for those who whant sounds like John 5 (who uses one) and just sick rock!!


Good pedal, some tweaking required.

By LittleMan

from Maryland

the pedal has a nice sound. there is a level of tweaking required to find the best settings. each knob i found changes the sound more than anticipated. once i sat with it for a while and got the knobs exacly where i needed them it sounded fine. just make sure you have them set precisely where needed, little shifts make a big tone difference.


Blood Drive FTW!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Looking at this pedal, and reading some of the reviews, you would expect it to be a medium- high gain distortion, but its not. Be fully aware of what this is and what it will do to your tone before purchasing. If your looking for a gorgeous, warm, VERY low gain overdrive, then this is the way to go, people looking for higher gain should consider other pedals, or this and another pedal to stack it with. Overall, if low gain is what you want, then this is perfect. Warm, Mellow, ALL ANALOG!!! Just gorgeous, buttery OD that pairs amazingly well with a tube amp.
