The Holy Grail of Overdrives
By: Michael from Portland OR
Your general opinion of this product.
I've been using a TS9 tube screamer for years but wanted to try the Hardwire CM-2 overdrive based on how much I have liked my Hardwire RV-7 Stereo reverb pedal. The CM-2 turned out be better than I had hoped. It has much more gain and volume than the TS9 and having separate Low and High controls allows for unlimited tone variation while still keeping the true tone of the variety of guitars that I use. The Classic/Modified switch allows you to go from classic overdrive to higher gain settings that make a Strat and Tele really sing. Another really cool feature is to turn the gain all the way down which gives you a totally clean boost which I cannot get from the TS9.
