I was at GC the other day specifically to pick up a used pedal out of their used pedal case, and the sales guy suggested the newer renamed version of this pedal, the T01 Tube Overdrive. This pedal is set up on a board that has the following other drive pedals - Boss Blues Driver, Digitech Bad Monkey and the Boss SD1. Of all of these pedals, the T01 by far has the smoothest, warmest tube overdrive sound. This is being played through a Peavey 112 Valveking tube amp.It is built very well - think MXR but a bit larger - and it is easy to dial in. But keep in mind, it's an overdrive sound - not a true distortion. It breaks up, so if you are looking for a great overdriven blues sound, this is the way to go. It by far trumps both the Blues Driver and the Bad Monkey, and the BM is supposed to be a Tube Screamer clone.Nice pedal and well worth the $40 it cost.
Great tone from this pedal! I normally don't write reviews, but for this one, I had to. You're not going to get a huge crunch like a BOSS or similar, but if you want SMOOTH drive, this is the pedal! Better than the TS-9 - a must have for anyone with a tube amp!
Better than the TS9, great tone, very cheap, try it out.
I haven't heard a dist/OD pedal I've liked for 20 years. (not like I've heard a ton of them tho).The only thing I can stomach are the amp models of Roland and Line6.I ran onto this Tube Driver by accident and I LOVE it. It is smooth and has clean distortion (if you know what I mean). It reminds me of a Marshall amp in that aspect. This is the best distortion/OD pedal I've ever heard. Plus it is all metal casing and very inexpensive.
I'v seen pedals that cost hundreds, and still cant produce the quality tone this pedal does. If you own a tube amp, this pedal is a must have.
I was fixed on buying an Ibanez TS9 but saw the Deltalab TD1 and bought this instead. Tried both pedals back to back in the shop through a valve amp and found the TD1 had all the sounds I wanted - could hardly tell the difference on my favorite settings. Gigged with it using a Mesa 5-50 Express 2x12 combo and it sounded great - even had some compliments on my tone from other guitar dudes in the audience. Had the gain way down to get a thick warm crunch on the clean channel and used it to boost my burn channel during solos. The TD1 performed great - no noise and did not affect my straight tone when off, so the true bypass seems to be good. The control knobs are exposed, so if you give your pedals a rough time, this may be a problem for you. The on-off switch is old-school and clunky but functional and otherwise it seems a solid enough construction (time will tell but there is a warranty). I have seen some detrimental reviews about tone-sapping and crude electronics when you look inside. I didn't notice any tone-sapping (tone changing, yes) using my Strat and I don't care what is inside as long as it works reliably and sounds great. Overall, I'm really happy with the TD1.
