Members Uma Floresta Posted June 14, 2006 Members Share Posted June 14, 2006 Well, I've had the Fab OD for a couple of weeks now, and I finally got the Fab Distortion, and I must say, I like the Fab Distortion much better. Everything the OD does, the Distortion does better. Basically the OD, even at it's highest tone setting, chops the head off your highs. It will go from totally clean to fairly dirty, and it has a lot of clean volume as well, but it chops off most everything above 1K or so. Whereas the Fab Distortion is also totally clean at it's lowest gain setting, and also has quite a bit of clean volume, but it has a more normal tonal range -- if you set the tone at about 50%, it doesn't seem to mess with your tone. Crank the tone and it gets crispy, cut the tone and it gets bassy, just like it should. And, the Fab Distortion has much more gain available -- it will go from totally clean to a medium-high saturated distortion. If I were to do it all over again and I wanted one mild OD/boost and one heavier distortion, I would have just bought two Fab Distortions, because it does overdrive better than the Fab OD, and it also works great as just a nice, saturated distortion pedal. Quite a nice pedal, I think this one probably deserves the hype that it gets, especially for a paltry $15. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
