can anybody shed some light on this pedal?

Looking at purchasing a Artec DBT-1 Dual Booster pedal, and on face value the pedal looks like a cheap straight up clone of a Zvex Super duper, however i cant seem to find any more information to support this. cant find any reviews of it on the internet. found a guts shot of it on another forum, but its taken from the back of the circuit board so its not much use.

Spec sheet says its a 3.3 mohm input buffer, and it uses a BS170 mosfet transistor, which i believe is the same as the SD 2in1 but im not sure?

in short, has anybody had one and compared it to an SD 2in1, cause theres no way in hell i can afford the original.

def looks like a clone. the SHO uses the BS170 for sure.

no i haven't tried the DBT-1, but i bought a clone for under a 100 usd. some no name maker. some pedal builders on this forum could prob build you one too.

i can't find a video of the DBT-1 and the clip they have on their site is really different from how i use mine. but when you drive it full out (like i guess they do on their demo) it does get a similar 'pinched' tone as the tone.
