I have tried many overdrives and this one is currently my favourite. I love the hot tubes side to push my tube amp to breakup, the crayon side is creat for classic rock tones and when you put them both together you get magic. It works well with humbuckers and single coils.

If your overdrive doesn't give you quite enough dirt, but your distortion gives you too much, this is the perfect pedal. Being able to combine two ODs into one machine is awesome, and the tonal varieties you get from it are killer!

Solid dual-drive for the price. I've previously tried both the Hot Tubes and Crayon pedals, so this is the perfect pairing. I've got the Hot Tubes side set as a clean-with-a-bit-of-hair boost, while the Crayon side is the main drive tone. Pretty cool and it never leaves my board.

When this pedal is played with a humbucker guitar and both sides are engaged, the pedal will loose all of it's volume and tone. EHX is aware of the issue and doesn't seem to care. The pedal sounds great, but it needs two be sent away for three plus weeks to New York, to be repaired, just so it can work properly.
