Soul Food; I always wanted to give proper time with this pedal as its so popular. You guys might know its the most affordable clone of the most expensive OD pedal smile.gif

The flat setting is drive all down and tone around 1 o'clock. With a typical OD the drive gets apparent around 10-11 o'clock but with the soulfood its almost 3! so you understand quickly that its not ment to drive crazy. Its more of a guitar tone enhancer, tone knob on the right and as you turn the drive it brings the cutting mid.s apparent and tone to the left give heft (can't say body to the tone as its still around the mid area to my ears).

What I preferred was to keep it always on (first in chain) with low drive and volume settings, simply just to tune the guitars tone as its really transparent. Its something for guys who like a simple amp-guitar setup, particularly playing clean or slightly driven tones which is why its so popular among jazz and blues guys.

PS; its nothing like a tubescreamer, ts adds a lot of color and even slight compression compared to it when the drive is all the way down. The soulfood is the lowest gain pedal I've tried till now.

Hot tubes; This is really interesting, a clone of a 70's EHX pedal. Definitly a dirty amp driver as although I like some OD's on the clean channel (like a ts9) this didn't work for me that way.

It blends sparcling saturation to the clean signal. I liked it most when an amp is on dirt channel but set cleanish and use the pedal with aggresive settings to get that rock'n roll crushed Fender amp solo sound. Didn't get fuzzy but was close to it on extreme settings, I found it to be very experimental like it can also work well as a second OD pedal to get the first OD pedals tone over the top.
