    Can you operate the pedal from a 9v battery?
    Jay H on Nov 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: While this pedal doesn't take a battery (most mini-format pedals don't), you can easily power it with a One-Spot device (check Google) or Monoprice sells one if you only need to power one or two low power consumption pedals (<200mA) https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=611691. They also sell a 500mA version: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=611690

    I love Monoprice products but the One Spot supports up to 1700mA with the daisy chain power cord and is enough to run several pedals if not running to large a board. (power supply should always exceed the mA requirement for your powered devices to prevent premature wear/ sound issues. If this is the only pedal you need to power, you might also find a 9V battery adapter that will allow you to "hang" the battery from the power port on the pedal itself, since the pedal doesn't allow space or accommodation for a battery connection on it's own. Hope this helps.
    Curious how this sounds on a clean solid state amp. Has anyone tried it? Even better if you've tried it with a tele or tele style guitar.
    A shopper on Aug 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have not used it with a tele. But with my strat it sounds good through a solid state amp. It seems to provide more distortion than true overdrive. On higher gain settings it even enters fuzz pedal territory. I have tried it with humbuckers as well and it can get a bit muddy if you use much gain. So really depends on what you want. But for the price it is quite decent.
    Put it before or after overdrive?
    A shopper on Aug 18, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I'm still experimenting with pedal order. It sounds good in various locations in the pedal chain. Right now, I have it after a Caline CP-12 and before a Joyo JF-36. The CP-12 provides the tone shaping at the beginning of the chain and the Tube Overdrive can be used to drive the %$&* out of the otherwise fairly mellow JF-36. The Tube Overdrive has a clean bleed (some of the clean signal bypasses the distortion and tone stages) so even at high gain settings it remains dynamic. It has true bypass and a very low output impedance (150 Ohms) at all settings. Some pedals, like FuzzFace will sound very different if driven by this pedal. Have fun experimenting!
    How does this do for a bass? Does it have full freq response?
    A shopper on Jul 15, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: It should be fine to overdrive a bass guitar, a lot of bass players use standard guitar effects to improve their bass sound.
    All your pedals do not come with the 9v power supply, correct?
    Abram G on Jan 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Yes that is correct, the power supply (Product # 611690) will need to be purchased separately which can be found here: https://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=115&cp_id=11501&cs_id=1150108&p_id=611690&seq=1&format=2

    Sounds as good as a TS-808
    I used to own a reissue of the original TS-808 and this thing sounds as good as that pedal did. It actually sounds better with my strat than my King of Tone pedal from Analogman.... I literally replaced my King of Tone overdrive with this thing yesterday for a gig next week. I powered this pedal with my onespot and it was completely silent. I don't play noiseless single coils either so I think it's safe to say this pedal is quiet, no humming or buzzing at all in my experience. Play this baby with a decent tube amp and a strat and it sounds very SRV like, set the Gain at about 9 O'clock and turn the level up past 12 o'clock to your liking.

    PROS: Price
    Sounds good
    Bright LED
    Low/High knobs
    Sounds great

    CONS: Not completely metal, but at this price I'm not sure you can really complain about that.

    May I say, as good as Ibanez Tube Screamer
    I have an Ibanez Tube Screamer ( the original Overdirve pedal), and this pedal sounds as good or maybe even better than the original real thing. The tone adjustment is helpful when switching between Humbucker and single coil pick-ups, since single coils can sound a bit thin without adjusting the tone, and having tone adjustments on the actual pedal, saves you from re-adjusting your amplifier (finding that sweet spot for the tone controls on your amplifier can be a tedious, time consuming exercise if you are as particular as I am). This thing works great in a tube based amplifier. I have not tried it in a transistor based amp. I love the tiny size, since real estate on my pedal board is always at a premium. All I can say is, if you are looking for a "REAL" Tube Overdirve Pedal, that gives honest "Overdrive" tone, then this will fulfill that search. At Monoprice's price, just buy it. Don't forget the power supply (not included with the pedal) .

    PROS: Warm, creamy overdirve with lots of articulation. Tone adjustments are a great touch, and level adjustment allows for use as a rhythm effect, or turn up the level for a solo boost pedal.

    CONS: That Monoprice didn't make this thing available earlier.

    Most fun you can have for $30 without getting arrested
    Not a lot of pedals inspire me to pick up my guitar. This one does. Playing my SG (with mini humbuckers) through this and into my cheap Fender Champ 100?

    Sounds amazing. Nice distortion when you want it, and the guitar screams when you want it to. I have to be careful when I mess around with it, because I invariably end up spending way too much time playing.

    Haven't noticed the noise that others have talked about, it's fairly quiet to me.

    Do other pedals sound better? Maybe. But the ones that sound slightly better probably aren't $30. Skip a hamburger out and a couple of beers with it, and buy this pedal. It's a no-brainer.

    I've been using the overdrive pedal daily for just over two weeks. The pedal was smaller than what I would have expected but that isn't a bad thing. I was able to add it to an already full pedal board with ease. Remember too that this pedal doesn't take a battery so you will need a power supply of some sort. I'm using a filtered Joyo power supply and do not get any unwanted hum out of the pedal when in use. However, when I just used the monoprice 9v power supply I did get quiet a bit of hum and hiss (old home wiring), so its best to use a filtered power supply. Tones are great and exceeded my expectations at the price point, you'll need to spend at least double to get anything similar from a different brand. For the price this pedal is well worth a go, enjoy!

    PROS: Metal casing, over driven tones that make me happy, relatively low price point, small form factor

    Sounds great

    PROS: small footprint, BIG SOUND! Well made. Inexpensive. Delivers a great sound, I can not tell any difference from Brand name versions of Tube Screamers.

    CONS: None

    Definitely a contender in this price range
    This pedal has a very good sound, particuarly at this price point. It's got very little noise while 'on' but not playing the guitar. The only nit is the 'plastic sidewalls' of the thing. Otherwise, this is a strong contender in the 'budget 808 overdrive pedal sweepstakes'.

    PROS: Has a fairly buttery sound.

    CONS: Plastic side construction.

    This pedal does the job, it is a little noisy when compared to the TS, but for the price you get some nice overdrive and boost.

    Sounds good
    It's hotter than you would expect. It can really scream. But keep the dials low and it's a nice pick up.

    Noisy in more ways than one.
    Wanted to like this small footprint, inexpensive overdrive. Pretty noisy pedal, which in general is not that unexpected in an overdrive pedal, but it's a bit much for my taste. The low rating however is mostly due to some weird shielding issue whereby any tapping on the case (even just moving the cable attached) can be clearly heard on the amp. Too bad, as it is otherwise built solidly.

    PROS: Inexpensive, small footprint, solid.

    CONS: Noisy in more ways than one.

    If you are looking for a ts-808 style tune screamer this one sounds great, has a little more drive than the original and takes up very little real estate on a pedal board. True bypass. Quiet. Can’t go wrong at this price.
