Does anyone have any experience of using the Tokai 'Pride & Joy' overdrive pedal? My son is wanting to buy an Ibanez Tube screamer and I am told that the Pride & Joy would be well worth considering.

consider the Maxon OD-808 as well. No experience with the Tokai pedal.

The maxon is great. I modded mine with a .1 uf cap in the tone stack (instead of .047) an easy mod that gives a touch more low end and a slightly different character... less overly midrangey but not "scooped" sounding either by any means. More of a flat response IMO.

I used it stock for about 2 years though before I modded it and it was also quite nice that way.

It's a clone of a TS-808 with a JRC 4558D chip.

TS-9s are harsh and not worth considering IMO.

Thanks for the advice Brad. We'll certainly check that pedal out.

Amazing Sound Sample by Lee Slater, He used to be Iron Maiden's lead singers guitarist..I think The original singer that is.

Reviews are very exciting, he seems to have cracked the SRV Code!:0
