Shockingly good tone, get a V1 Drive while you can! featured

Ease Of Use I recently bought this pedal, in addition to the Dano Transparent Overdrive I also have. I've heard good things so I wanted to grab a V1 Drive before the less than stellar V2 models replace them. I was looking for a warmer boost with a bit of tone coloring for varity. This pedal does exactly what I expected and is a great compliment to my Dano TOD.


Sound I use this pedal to boost my 5 watt Blackstar HT-5 gain channel. This pedal adds some nice warmth and loads of liquid sustain to my gain channel and also just the right amount of hair.
The pedal by itself on the clean channel with the gain dial set high produces a very convincing pushed Marshall type of tone that actually shocked me. Normally I find gain boxes to sound artificial and thin sounding, but this pedal does the exact opposite.
The pedal is moderately noisey when on, but nothing out of the ordinary. My ISP Decimator takes care of that anyways.


Reliability These new Dano's are built very well, with metal casing and jacks. I don't think I'll have any issues with this pedal breaking. The switch is solid too.


Customer Support Never dealt with Dano personally.


Liked about it 1. I like the warmth this pedal offers to my tone.
2. Quality versus price point is great. I like it better than my Boss overdrives that I have.
3. The design is unique and build quality is great. Dials are top mounted so your foot never touches them.


Didn't like Not much I don't like, although stacked tone controls like the Dano TOD has would have been a plus.

Cool Cat drive purrs

Ease Of Use Ease of use? Simple. If you can't figure this out then forget about changing strings...ever. Just tun knobs until you like what you hear. Sort of like a radio.


Sound I have many distortion pedals and in a very short time this inexpensive little bugger has become my favorite. It's very versatile in the drive amount and the tone actually is useful in shaping the sound. There is also plenty of output so that it sounds robust with any amp.


Reliability No issues as far as reliability goes for me. I haven't taken it out of the house yet though. This one is strictly for recording and in home rehearsal.


Liked about it The number one thing that I like is that it's so dadgum cheap! It also sounds 10 times better than a DS1. It's just a great sounding little dirt box.


Didn't like The 3 things I don't like too much are the 3 knobs that are hidden in the front of the pedal instead of on top where they are more accessible.
