Tech 21 Double DrivePublished on 12/16/06 at 15:20

Analog gain overdrive with 2 buttons, 1 amp type distortion Class A (Vox) and 1 type of distortion-type class A / B (Marshall), both used at the same time to find a good choice of sounds

USE

Very simple configuration, a level (very effective) a tone and therefore two drives. I use a Trace Elliot amp supertramp twin (equip for vintage Celestions 30) with a fender jaguar japan (with original waxpots microphones at the moment but I'll put bientt us). I tried with 2 Epiphone (the dot and paul std) of friends and also the fact really.

SOUND QUALITY

This is frankly the pedal I was looking for very (too) long. I did not know until I met a guitarist who had one, I tried and I was more direct! The overdrive is really good quality and no shortage of bass like some boss or other brands.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I've had three months I would do this choice without hsiter and I'm not ready to get bored! I tried the boss pedals overdrive distortion ... I guard my boss sd1 (tampering) for crunch and this pedal for the main distortion. I was looking for this sound typ amp british lamp long time, I thought even that has not existed as good overdrive pedal and the price is really honest (130 new on some sites)! Apparently tech 21 out double x3 drive to replace it but the former is still findable on some website (tech stock to finish at 21 times I wonder even if they did not manufacture just for me)

I'll keep it simple, I sold it recently.
A gain is the gain in A / B, the tone looks liabilities (treble cut anything else) and the volume is too loud even in clean boost.
This structure creates a lot of noise you can imagine, especially if your grater in fact at the base.
Also, it is not obvious to manage the fat in the absence of equalizer.
Finally, the gain A / B is not linear, while in the lowest fifth of the race. Okay.

UTILIZATION

Very well said before me, looks simple but it's not the case!
A case I'm telling you, the controls are a bit progressive challenge. Fat as well, not really manageable for real.
I tested it before buying a F.blues junior, and with this amp...…

I tested it before buying a F.blues junior, and with this amp it sounds great on the clean channel jc a roland cube too.
Nor! Nothing to do, not enough this, too this, tufts of objectives that fly, not glop glop not!

SOUND QUALITY

Clean signal and too powerful, because bypass super transparent and substantially improving the sound of the guitar if you have a long cable between the pedal and amp (I have 3 feet of the guitar to the pedal, and with location 6 or 9 meters the pedal to the amp!).
Consumption close to nil, type 4 milliamps (one 9v energizer contains 570, or 140 hours of battery life!).
But hey, too much trouble and not flexible enough, moreover Zont out in the same 3-band programmable equalization. They at least are not deaf to criticism!

OVERALL OPINION

Perhaps the 3x, but more that one for sure.
Warning, this is not an amp simulator, overdrive is a (rare Tech21) so perfectly in place before a clear channel.
You will not with metal, rock not precise, and most of the blues is a little greasy but I think it depends on the amp I guess.
In short, try before you buy your stuff, it is not given though.
