Hi. For Blues, Blues Rock and Classic Rock . . . . .
if you've played any or all of the below "Blues Boost Drivers"
or "Blues Overdrive" pedals, which ones did/do you like or dislike?

Mostly, forget price and share if you like any or all or none of the four
regarding their sounds/tones ~ would buy again? recommend to others?
. . . . or why didn't you like one of the below stomp boxes? Thanks.


* BOSS BD-2 Blues Driver
* ISP Technologies Totally Blues
* Digitech Screamin’ Blues
* DOD FX Mystic Blues Overdrive

Nah, some people can't take comments that don't fit in their world view.

I prefer Jimmy. Much more complex character, and his standup is pretty funny.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

far as i'm aware, the screamin blues is a bd2 with a bass control. It may well be based on the older DOD mystic blues, too (though i'd need to check that- i think the bad monkey is based on one of the older dod pedals, the juice box maybe).

dunno about the isp

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I like JohnnyW JimB and JackD, myself
After a bit of their friendship, the pedals start blurring together.


So far, I'm liking the:
* BOSS BD-2 Blues Driver
* ISP Technologies Totally Blues

Both have good DNA and a great following.

Hey guys, if you don't like a thread, report it and move on. Bumping it with pointless insults isn't accomplishing anything.

Thanks, Dave and other comments:
I've read good reviews all over the place towards all four "blues" pedals.
They're all under $100 and have the "blues" designed circuitry by their
manufacturers to differ themselves from other "overdrive" and "boost" pedals.

The ISP Totally Blues is hard to locate for a review/test, so I ordered one today.
I checked out the Boss BD-2 Blues Driver = awesome and bought it on-sight.


I'll still check out both the
* Digitech Screamin’ Blues
* DOD FX Mystic Blues Overdrive
in the near future.
At least I'll have the ISP and Boss pedals for comparisons

Yeah, because a blues driver isn't just an overdrive with the name blues written on it in crayon.

Toppscore. Those pedals are okay but mediocre. Like your threads.

The Timmy or Fulltone OCD are much nicer. Get one of them, don't make a thread about it though.

Go ahead and spend your money, I don't care. It won't make you sound better.

Sure upgrading your gear will make you sound better.

I think that spending 200$ on an Arc Effects Klone v2 which is a near perfect Klon clone is the best way to go when buying an overdrive. The OCD is great too though.

+1

they're still overdrive pedals, the circuitry is the same (or similar, anyway, the blues driver is a little different). Just their voicing tends to be more transparent and brighter.

The marshall bluesbreaker (mooer does a clone, the blues crab) also has that type of "blues overdrive" tone, and it's a bog standard op-amp-with-clippers-in-the-feedback-loop overdrive, just like a tubescreamer or similar.

the timmy does that transparent type of tone, too (and again, is a pretty standard overdrive design). or a klon, i suppose.

Reported. You asked for suggestions and then went ahead and purchased them without taking any of our considerations which null in voids this thread. I believe that this has happened on every one of your threads.
