Sobbat DB-2 Drive Breaker II
I will rely on the advice I gave on the Drive breaker 1 of the brand is a variation on this theme.

So ... overdrive / distortion of the Japanese Sobbat, handmade.
Even controls that DB-1, to have Drive and Level, EQ and two bands. I do not ask more.


Same as the DB-1 ... Very easy to find a sound.
The EQ is very effective, good range of sounds thanks to her. The Level and Drive are progressive and usable at any level. Really nothing to say in two shots ladle was what we want.

I've used several different guitars (start type, ibanez, half body etc) and although the results are excellent throughout, I prefer it with humbuckers: it has a characteristic sound, the microphones were simple I think tend to exacerbate them. With humbuckers, more balance and opportunity ... I prefer this, but after each his own!

Same comment as for the DB-1: it is necessary to unscrew the back plate to put on or remove a battery, the twenty-first century I think we could find a system a bit more practice, but hey! I use a power supply, so I say to the form, what ...


The party, again! The sound recalls that of course the Drive Breaker 1. The two differences are the grain of saturation, more raw and less flowing than the DB-1, which gives a very clear distortion, and level of distortion, maximum power is lower here.

In the end, the side TubeScreamer / Stevie Ray Vaughan, which is already felt with DB-1 that was one of (the?) Big guys of Sobbat inspirations for this series, shows 100%. By adjusting light as boost / overdrive or saturation in large (fully it continues to send large, anyway) is that spirit which is always present ... Electric blues phrases quite naturally come to the SRV and the fast lines to Richie Kotzen which also uses a sound in this style ...

She combines this with the typical sound qualities of the DB-1, namely in two words: very good dynamic and responsive to the nuances of the game like side knobs guitar, good range of selections including equalization balanced and efficient Sustain finally, what a beautiful sustain!


In summary, excellent variation on the theme of the Drive Breaker!
I'm really happy to play in this sense is also a real guitar pedal, which is based on his "historic" that made triping still a bunch of us, modernizes and expands greatly its opportunities while maintaining quality throughout the run of knobs.
Casually I say I have summarized the philosophy of the guys at Sobbat, ha ha!

Anyway ... I really like.
