They are only $100 so worst case, I don’t like it and sell it on reverb.

Again thanks everyone for the advice!
Have a great weekend

Edit*
I notice it says built to order on the SMS online store. Does anyone have any idea how long the wait is once you purchase an Earth Drive, new from them?
About seven days

Considering he builds you your own custom hand wired pedal used by the likes of Jimmy Herring, etc I’d say it’s definitely worth the wait 👍

Some things came up, so I haven’t ordered the Earth Drive yet, but I will be soon.

Those Bugera PS1 are hard to find. They must be popular, every place I have looked is out of stock.

Anyhow,
I will update when I get the Earth Drive, with my thoughts on it.

So I got the email the other day from Sweetwater, that they finally got some of the Bugera units in. I decided to jump, since I couldn’t find them anywhere else.

It’s going to be delivered today, and I’m excited to try it out. Especially to see how it sounds with my current MXR Dist. +. I will still most likely get an Earth Drive, so I’ll keep updating for when I do.

Hope I am not too late to add my 2 cents. A Couple of years ago
I was in search of a new overdrive and someone on this board
recommended the Ehx Soulfood. Supposedly a klon like pedal
and said to be similar to an Earth Drive. I went for it and am happy with it. I just use it for alittle grit. The price is right too. Good luck

There are many to choose from, no doubt about it.

I’m holding off on the Earth Drive until I see what kind of tone I can get using the Bugera. If I can get some natural overdrive, the MXR might work just fine to put the finishing touches on.

If not, I will most likely go with the Earth Drive.

Thanks everyone, for the continued feedback

The JHS Moonshine V2 is incredible. I highly recommend it. It has a clean blend control, allowing you to add your clean signal along with the overdriven tone. This is so helpful in dialing in the many different types of overdrive, and it’s characteristics we all long for.
