In a rare twist of fortune, Guitar Center happened to have the Sensation Fuzzdrive in stock (along with the Blessed Mother). I plugged into their demo room setup and was floored at the versatility and quality of the fuzz/distortion coming out of it. The EQ switches are powerful, and they provide a wide variety of sounds and character. The saturation selector further broadens the capability. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fantastic and versatile fuzz/distortion. And I'll say, despite the recommendation, it sounds amazing after my Boss TU-2.
A beast of a pedal, and by far the best OD/fuzz I’ve played. It’s full of sounds and all of them good—and simple to use. It makes me want to play new stuff, not the stuff I already know—and that’s what I really want most from a new pedal.
On the highest gain stage, mine has a pronounced hum, but at the same time, the chances of me needing to turn it up past 10 o’clock are slim so I can live with it.
I haven’t had a chance to play it with other pedals, but the hellish range of OD/fuzz is amazing and always sounds musical, so I think it will do well with others.
Saw this pedal on Youtube tOday and immediately went out to get it. Have not been able to stop using it. The fuzz drive does exactly what It says it does.
I find it simple to dial everything in, it’s one of those pedals that just has a really great sound and does not disappoint when it comes to getting crazy distortion. What I noticed though coming from a Vox tube amp with a fender strat and then trying it on my Les Paul fender blues tube amp I could not get any cleaner tones whatsoever. It was just way over the top even with everything pulled back on the pedal and I can’t understand it - same with just plugging it into my Apollo X8P audio interface. I guess it may just have something to do with the Pes Paul’s pickups?
