I assume that's the BK Butler Tube Driver, the overdrive pedal with an actual 12ax7 tube?

You may have seen this, Buffalo FX makes a pedal called the TD-X, which attempts to be a solid state clone of the Tube Driver. Bjorn at Gilmourish gives it high praise (he has some demo videos on YouTube as well).

I've never played a Tube Driver or TD-X, but I found and built the PedalPCB Cattle Driver. I can't make any useful comparison to the TD or TD-X, but it's a great sounding overdrive in its own right.

Yes it is. A 911 model from 2017.

Well, actually I did own a TD-X. I sold it yesterday brcause I bought the Tube Driver. The TD-X is like 85% spot on. Especially the low gain sounds are pretty convincing. I have ordered a 12au7 tube to fit in the Tube Driver. I am curious how that sounds.

If you happen to find a TD-X nearby, go for it. It is a fantastic pedal. Convenient too, as opposed to the Tube Driver which has the power chord.

More for the "killin it" file. Sounds great!

How many takes do you usually have to do before you get one that's up to your obviously-high standards?

Thanks for the kind words!

Regarding the amount of takes, it really depends. I believe these were between 2-3 takes.

Usually I just do a few short samples (around 2 to 4 bars) and carefully listen how they work out in the mix.
If I then need to do a lot of work to try and get it to sit well in the mix, I usually change some settings on the amp or pedals.
E.g. For the first solo I had to back of the volume on my guitar to 8 and the tone control on my guitar to 7. I also increased the blended signal on the OC-1 compressor and reduced some highs on the Power Booster. It then sounded a lot rounder and fuller without the harsh transient attacks of which I thought they were too apparent initially and did not fit wel with the rest of the track.

After that I just do one full take and listen carefully to the whole track. Sometimes I am off on many occasions and I just do it all over and sometimes I only do a few parts again which I don't like. E.g. sometimes I miss a string or make a little error but the rest of the track is okay. I will then only rerecord that little part with the error and fit it in with the rest.

These solos didn't take too many takes. I believe between 2 to 5 some small parts in between.

Did another one.
This time with a little less gain.

Signal chain:
SSL-2 into OC-1 > BKB Tube Driver into Triwatt
