As hard as it is to believe , Deadman is right .
Got myself a Daphon to just have a look at and am very impressed . Took a bag of pedals round to a friends house when his Proco Rat was stolen and the one pedal he borrowed from the choice was the Daphon.
This was from origional an Marshall Guvnor and an all singing and dancing programable Korg as well .

Hi to all!!!

After reading Deadman and Japanstrat's comments on the Daphon E20OD, i was quite curious as to how close it would get to the TS-9 sound..... Well, i searched high and low for one, but the stores were always out of stock, and no one selling 2nd hand.....

Well, about a week ago, a guy posted TWO pedals for sale, the E20OD and a Daphon Distortion unit..... Both for about Php 1,500 Philippine Pesos, or about US $31.25.... well, i got him to take Php 250.00 off the price, and I got both pedals for Php 1,250.00, or about US $26.04, or US $13.02 per pedal......

So i tested them, and wow....... Very very very close to my Nobels ODR-1, and my Iba?ez TS-5 Soundtank sounded rougher........ What a deal!!!!

Thanks a million for the tip, fellas....... This Daphon's a KEEPER!!!

It depends what you want and what your comparing it to.

I mean I love the original Ibanez TS808 but you cant compare the TS5, TS9 with a TS808.

The original Ts808 was in an entirely different ball park!

I mean the original TS808 you would literally kill your mother for!:0

Meh...comes down to preferences..
I prefer the TS9 to the TS808.
I've got a first run of the original TS9's and it's always been a reliable fallback.
I've gone digital recently and the models get pretty dammned close to that TS9 sound.

The DAPHON E200D is also being sold as Freedom E200D.
They are basically identical to a TS-9 apparently they use the same chip as the Ibanez.
I really can't tell the difference.
Using the E200D as a boost into a Marshall = Tone.

I'm quite satisfied with my Keeleyish modded DS-1, but I know there is something better out there. I guess my personal holy grail would be a bluesier DS-1 or a TS-9 with a bit meaner attitude. I've always thought that tube screamers are a bit lame, but now I feel like something mellower than the DS-1 could make it on my board. BTW my only other overdrive is a Zoom Ultra Fuzz, which I use mostly for gated synth-like tones.

Any recommendations, a bluesier DS-1 or a meaner TS-9. And did I already mention that I'm on a budget?

A Boss OD-3 would be my recomendation. No mods necessary

I just purchased a Boss SD-1 modded with the Rick Franklin Mod, a lot cheaper than Keeley and with true bypass: http://cgi.ebay.de/BOSS-SD-1-SUPER-OVERDRIVE-W-FRANKLIN-PRO-MOD-W-TBP_W0QQitemZ150125054743QQihZ005QQcategoryZ64417QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Haven't got it yet, but I'm very curious about the sound....

Does anybody know a good compressor???

There's a guy in Helsinki who also sells selfmodded SD-1's for 80 ? or so. Check the site:

http://www.uraltone.com/kauppa/index.php?language=en

Might give him a call.

I have a modded Japanese SD-1 which is great, but I still prefer the OD-3. More chunk.

Hi guys, a good friend of mine has just bought a dod overdrive ,as he plays hendrix (style) he has a range of gear uni-vibes fuzz faces wha pedal ect. He found that the fuzz faces he has (some modified curcit)
were all very harsh, detracting from the wha pedal (so it was more like a volume than a wha) He also has a ts9 this is great as a boost but not great when his amp (marshall 50 w head) was fully wound up.
so after trying mxr ,boss,voodoo lab & dod . He settled for the dod (may transplant into fuzz face casing) it was the cheapest ?49.00 but it was also
the best for the job as it didn't alter the signal in the effects being used
before overdrive.Their is a guy on fleabay selling fuzz face kits( no case)
so you may want to check him out ? But as i said my friend has 5 & not 2 of them sound the same.

Do you remember which model the Dod overdrive it was? I'm really more into affordable, surprising pedals than expensive boutique stuff.
