    Comments about Dr. J Pedals D-53 Sparrow Driver & DI Bass Guitar Effects Pedal with True Bypass:

    Good one: an inexpensive toner brightener for bass circuits.
    The harmonic and drive circuits work as advertised, giving a good tube-like brightener for my already good tube pre-amp output. For highlighted bass refrains or solos, I roll off the bass and treble to 1/3, and set Volume, Harmonics and Drive controls to 3/4. (4/4 introduces noticeable hiss, though subdued at stage settings.) It's output may not be quite quiet enough for for hi-fi recording sessions.
    Unlike other some other drive pedals, the engage/bypass switch is electronically quiet (though mechanically noticeable). It matters, as my amp's efx loop opens a bypass between pre-amp out and power-amp in on the back panel. Note, too, that this pedal's efx output can directly drive line-in on a mixer or power amp, as can the XLR output; thus useful as a DI on it own, as required.
