Similar, but not as big in the bass, and it's got the speaker modeling if you want that. I think there was something wrong with your pedal, all the Earthquakers I've played have been very powerful...

Earthquaker Monarch, Tech 21 Oxford. Both good, both work well with AC type amps. I like the Earthquaker better, more of that wooly Orange bottom end.

One person having a preference doesn't make a thing overrated. It means you like something else better. And probably that your friends are dumb, or 15, or both.

If they're the same gauge, yes (almost always, anyway). Changing gauge might throw the intonation off, more likely as you get farther from the original gauge.
