Review: DP Music Cristorsore


Hello and welcome to this week's article!
Today we're going to review an interesting piece of hardware, with a name that can be very well considered a blasphemy from a Catholic point of view: il Cristorsore (a joke with words between Christ and Distorsore, distortion in italian), made by an italian artisan producer called DP Music.

This unit is a boutique variation of the classic Tube Screamer scheme; we had the chance to try it thoroughly and compare it with other classic tube screamers, like the Ibanez Ts-808, the Mxr Zakk Wylde and others, and we must say it has a very harmonically rich sound, and more gain than the original version.

Besides the different names, the three controls are the classic OD knobs: gain, tone and level, but this unit features also a switch which changes the style of this OD (actually the switch is not in every unit since the producer customizes it with the requests of the customer, and it should adapt the stompbox to a bass or a guitar input) adding additional gain, making it sound more like a distortion. In general this stompbox sounds hotter than a Tube Screamer, and ranges from a tone boost to a very hot saturation; the only bad note we can say is the fact that it has a bit more noise than its competitors, using similar settings.

A honorable mention to the graphics, which represent the former pope with 2 red leds for eyes. Brilliant!

Check out also the other stompboxes of Dp Music, most of which have some religion-related pun on their name, and you will discover that this producer features a pretty wide range of products for being a handcrafter!
