Mini Boss Blues Driver Clone
Demo of the Mooer Blues Mood placed in front of an already overdriven amp.
Guitar – Squier Crazy Vibe Strat (formerly CV 60s) with Duncan Designed SC101 bridge+neck pickups (taken from my Vintage Modified 70s Strat) and the stock CV alnico 5 in the middle.
Pedal – Mooer Blues Mood (Keeley-modded Boss Blues Driver clone).
Amp – Quilter Tone Block 200 into Kustom Defender 1×12 cab.
Most overdrive pedals sound better to me when they are used more as boost into an overdriven amp.
Probably why I actually prefer boost pedals to exploit the amps own overdrive character for my drive sounds.
I’ve had this pedal for about a year and it’s been on and off my pedal board regularly. It’s a great sounding pedal, but I find that whilst it sounds lovely for low-gain rhythm work, it tends to only work for me live when used as a full-out boost for leads.
Seeing as I have a boost pedal that I prefer for lead work, this often doesn’t make the lineup for the board.
However I am sure it’ll make a return to the nano board sometime because it’s a pedal that I feel I’m better off keeping, even if it gets little use. It certainly has mojo!
A friend of mine has a stock Boss Blues Driver, so to compare tonally, this pedal is basically the same.
