I’ve been working on my Gilmour board and was looking back into Tube Drivers. I had the 3 knob version and just couldn’t bond. I found a deal on a Tube Works Real Tube Overdrive model 901. I’m not too familiar with this model but was in absolutely pristine condition and was made in 2002.

Picked it up for $115. Good deal? Bad deal? Based on the prices of just the 3 knobbies, not even looking at the 4 knobbies, I couldn’t resist.

Wow looks amazing for 18 years old, how's it sound?

What else do you have in your DG kit?

It sounds absolutely fantastic. Not even thinking about changing out the tube. Too much Mojo as it is.

Right now I have a Vick Audio Overdriver (Colorsound Power Boost/Overdriver), a Ge and Si Analog.man Sun Face. One mid-gain RCA and one Telefunken BC-109B. The Tube Driver, which has a home off the Gilmour board as well. It’s coming along and what’s awesome is everything on this board can serve so many other purposes.

The Overdriver is still in the mail. I’ll throw up a photo as soon as it arrives.

Try a 12AU7 in place of the 12AX7. You’ll have better control over the amount of distortion you get from the pedal. I’ve had one of the original Tube Works pedals for over 30 years.

Unfortunately, I had to liquidate some stuff and this one was sold. It did sound fantastic with the stock 12AX7. I’m sure I would have loved an AU7.
