Sound Quality
the grey is darius pohl's take on the dod 250 preamp, but to my mind it's a totally different overdrive pedal. it has some of that special coarseness of the 250 overdrive, but has way more midrange to offer - just like your favorite bulimic model shows some curves finally (sorry, girls!). it's very dynamic, a bit muffy with the gain all down and, but just like the dod or the mxr distion+, gets VERY trebley with the gain all up. the sound in front of a clean amp always reminds me of the sounds keef richards and ron wood had in the 70s with their huge ampeg stacks - uncombed, sleazy, yet warm tones with some serious gain at hand if necessary. i really love playing rhythm guitar with this greasy fella here. it does good in front of a not so overdriven amp, high-gain tones may get too boomy if you don't watch out. but it's all a question of when and what with this more low-gain overdrive pedal.
built like a tank, looks very reliable.
General Comments
i play rock, blues and pop styles. this pedal may not suit all players' needs for an overdrive, but i think that a huge group might find the qualities of the grey tempting although they didn't look for this particular tone.
