I have a Tube Driver that BK built for me also has the bias mod and I believe these are still available direct from him.

Bonamassa FET Driver http: Elsewhere, the pedal is true bypass and runs bonakassa a nine-volt battery or power supply. I guess I just don’t understand.
It might be worth it though. Pages 1 2 3 … 7 Next.

Control-wise, the level and drive knobs act as you’d expect, while the hi and low knobs cut or boost treble and bass frequencies, and the hi cut switch rounds off high frequencies. Cons There are better value drive pedals out there. Joe Bonamassa Administrator Offline Registered: And if your living room drive doesn’t quite translate to the stage, press the handy hi cut switch and you’ll tone down the top end to prevent shrill treble at gig volumes.
G Silver Member Offline From: Hardly see how an overdrive pedal is worth that kind of dough, especially when you see on another thread that Joe suggests using a volume knob with a cranked amp over an overdrive.
And why the decision for a FET over tube? If the usual drives aren’t doing it for you, a visit to the FET might well be in order. Pages 1 2 3 … 7 Next You must login or register to post a reply.
Blends brilliantly with amp overdrive. All I know is they are killer sounding overdrives and I fully endorse them because I believe they are great. That’s another story, though In fact, crank up the gain and it’s so smooth that it begins to verge on fuzz territory, in contrast to the crunchy low-gain sounds.

The pedal’s natural-sounding dirt also blends beautifully with amp overdrive for meaty lead tones – just the way Bonamassa likes it. The FET Driver pedal is designed to thicken up lead playing, and bonxmassa tones range from soft clipping to bonamaxsa distortion. Would love to try one but not at those prices. I understood that they were going to release a straight up ‘FET Driver’ and the one seen on Joe’s board months ago was simply a prototype that he did some early testing on for them?
Anybody tried one yet or know of any demos online?
Hope to hear some demos soon. Our Verdict A pricey but worthwhile overdrive that suits both clean and dirty amps, especially for bluesy leads. Steelcustomguitars New member Offline Registered: It’s not the cheapest overdrive on the shelf, but Bonamassa and MXR get this one right, with a great range of sounds and a natural-sounding overdrive that suits both clean and dirty amps.
I can’t speak about the new FET Driver, but I think comparisons between a TS and a Tube Driver aren’t really going to hold up–completely different tone and EQ Tube Drivers are not at all midrangey, where Tube Screamers have that iconic midrange emphasis and low end countour. These pedals are killer Both great pedals as I’m sure the new FET Driver isbut quite different for those considering either.
I thought there wasn’t going to be a JB ‘signature’ edition of this pedal per se? You must login or register to post a reply.
