Probably the best in its price range
frankenchrist 06.04.2020
Of course it may not be as punchy or as dynamic sounding as the original Butler Tube Driver, but still it's a sound that is very, very special and hard to achieve in a bedroom musician's studio (I am one of those guys, yeah). I don't have an amp, all my guitars go through Harley Benton American Sound and then into my cheap Pre-Eq-Comp-Audio Interface. This pedal was crucial in achieving a Dinosaur Jr - type sound (e.g. lazy tubey strum for verses, before the Big Muff comes to blow you away) with such limited means. Awesome! Could've used an EQ for fine tuning, though.

this pedal has a unique character
togstn 21.01.2021
I bought it to use as a clean boost, instead of a tubescreamer. It does the job but with less tight low end.

pros:
-The distortion has a unique character, kinda on the fuzzy side though.
-good quality construction and looks.
-cheap, can be modded easily

Cons
- not much versatility, either you like the sound or not. not much can be done to alter it.
- not recommended for boosting an amp, i would go for a TS
-it can sound thin and harsh depending on the configuration

Definitely a keeper
Dirtnap 22.04.2020
I've been using it for guitar, bass and keys. Sounds like what it is - an overdriven tube preamp. It lacks some bass. Like a TS does too. So if I keep using it for bass, I might try splitting the signal, mixing clean with overdrive.
Big downer for me is how the bypass engages when you release the button instead of pressing, unlike every other stompbox in the world. That will take some getting used to, or I'll have to send it through a loop switcher.
OMG the price! The p r i c e ! !

Great booster for digital multieffects
Martin W. 790 07.01.2021
I swapped internal tube for EH12AX7 as soon as I received it. I am impressed with Tube Pilot how it reacts on tube swap.
I use it with Maxon OD808 to boost MOOER GE300 LITE's drive presets.
My digital toy turns into analog sounding monster.
TC Electronic Tube Pilot before MaxonOD808 with Mooer GE300 Lite give great heavy tone which you can not get from Mooer itself.
I had an idea, did not risk much because this thing cost just 40 pounds and finally I received amazing tone capabilities.
