    You know the full drive was my crush and I was pretty loyal to it for a while but I guess the honeymoon phase was over and I realized that it didn't really sound the way that I thought it did.

    The main problems you will strike with a TS-10 will be the cheap switch and the fact that the input and output are connected directly to the PCB. They sound great, reasonably close to the original TS-808 I had back in the early 80s, but reliability can become an issue.

    i reckon SRV would have swapped his tubescreamers for a fulldrive if they were around back then.

    Not at all, it is still very much an overdrive.

    it's always pushed my sound way too hard with gain.

    the lowest settings on the fulldrive are kind of lifeless.

    Higher settings gave me too much gain.

    There's some good sounds to be had, but I've never been fully satisfied. It just isn't doing that pushed amp SRV kind of sound.

    Sounds more like what I want, the full drive is like a distortion pedal!

    I've used the full drive for a while now but I saw some demos of the TS-10... yeah yeah, along with some SRV footage.

    Now I'm into the idea of getting one. What do you guys think? I'm willing to give up the "boost" function on my full drive, in my rig the overdrive pedal IS the boost.
Working...
