Friedman motor city drive

John_PJohn_P Frets: 1677
in FX
Has anyone tried one?     

Im surprised not to see more reviews when the be od and ds have a loads of clips and write ups.     
Thr clips I’ve heard sound good -  it has more gain than I expected and the valve does seem to be part of the sound rather than just for marketing. 

On paper it looks like these should be competing with the tube driver and Kingsley pedals.

    Really nice pedal had one for a few months. Traded it against a victory v30 mkii though.

    Thanks for that.     I thought the demos by Pete Thorn etc sounded good,  maybe a looser style distortion than the be od and dirty Shirley but more like an amp than pedal style distortion if that makes sense - less modern sounding.  

    The more I look at them the more surprised I am that they don’t get the rep of Friedman’s other pedals or other valve pedals like the Kingsley and tube driver. 

    How did did you find it works with other pedals and amps?
