OVERALL OPINION

I possde pedals that I bought to try to get a sound of light saturates without using a tube amp (live or on a console like jazzchorus transistor). I wanted my sound dirty, crunch, without changing the tonal sound when my j'enclenche the pedal. The pedal is very good for such use.
It's a fairly straight, well balanced without too much load the medium as a TS9.
Settings, plus the boost can get sounds really Varis, and always quality. The sound is still quite bright and well Dfine. it's going to the crunch, and we can push to hard rock with the boost and stuff too violent for me.
It is a high-end pedal that feels ca.
There is also a speaker simulation above, you can switch console to play live in the studio (with a very good result frankly) or live.
The only negative is the footswitch to turn on the pedals or switch to boost mode, which are very small and too close together, it's a bit pnible.

TC Electronic VDP1 Vintage Pre-Drive
Excellent pedal in order to inflate his or her to the crunch, or to the highly saturated.
Used on a VoxAC30 CC2 and a stratum.
Very good sound quality and excellent workmanship.

UTILIZATION

Very simple: two channels. And a distortion boost.
Setting clear and relatively efficient. Some buttons, including the tone is a bit small anyway.

SOUND QUALITY

Commme lot of distortion or overdrive pedal, the sound quality depends very much on the basis of the amp and guitar used. I tried many different pedals before buying this one (BigMuff, BritVox, ratt ......). This one fits what I wanted. I get a lot of fun even his "stoner" with lots of sustain, beautiful Feedback unfortunately my amp is limited in low, I do not taste all round brings this pedal when it is pushed far with the volume and boost.
The boost works very well, but I regret that it is not its own EQ, if not a switch with three modes (flat, mid, top), which does not suit me tjrs.
It is "transparent" and does not blast or parasite "off".
The sound is anything but "cheap" and artificial.

OVERALL OPINION

This remains a very good pedal, very good quality (manufacturing or Danish Dutch I think for mine). It subtly enhance the natural saturation of a tube amp. That's what I wanted. I paid quite expensive 2 years ago (about 300 euros). But I do not regret because I use it on almost all my pieces.
Quite rock-oriented sound (more than metal), I do not know if it is very versatile, but I think it fits a lot of configs.
A must try!
