Tonebone vs. Nady TD-1

Scott L

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


A distortion box question:


I've seen in several places (here, Harmony Central, etc.) that the Nady TD-1 is pretty much the same as the more expensive Tonebone Classic Distortion. One thing I noticed is that the Tonebone manual specifies more specific frequency boosts and cuts in the EQ section than the Nady manual.


For instance, the Tonebone says its mid-boost is "+12dB @ 620Hz or+6dB @ 390Hz," while the Nady says "This switch boosts the midrange frequencies (270Hz-700Hz)of the signal for a fatter sound. HIGH +12dB, MED +6dB." Possibly this is the same thing just stated more vaguely, but possibly not.


So my question is: has anyone been able to do a side-by-side test and found that they really do (or don't) sound the same?

Does anyone have an opinion as to how well the Nady works for hard rock and heavy metal. Think Iron Maiden-esque tone; I already have fine pedals for Metallica or something else.


Bear in mind, I do also appreciate and heavily use a good medium-gain pedal, so if anyone has experience with either of these (including the Tonebone vairants), let me know.

Shut up and play.
