    Nice pedal, but not what's called for here I don't think. As I have one of these and the Xotic AC Booster, I know where my money would go for what's being described.

      Yeah it could be my setup. If I happen to go to Guitar Center in the next few weeks I will make sure to try it with the Tubemeister and if I find it sounds like what you're looking for I'll let you know.

        Most awesome sounding OD I've ever laid my hands on. Smooth & warm as ****. This guy makes the best-sounding pedals in the universe (to my ears...)

        ....& they don't break the bank either

        With a LP...

        With a Strat...

        ...& the "mod" version that's apparently voiced even warmer...

        That's really cool pedal, indeed!

          I'm kinda unsure about the Morning Glory. It sounds nice for the most part but there's something in the gain structure that I'm not liking. it's sounding a slight bit too harsh and hairy.

          but here's how i'm feeling about those three I shortlisted;

          Mad Professor Royal Blue: This gets me excited. It's just got a soul and characteristic that I find very sexy, smooth, and tasty.

          Barber Gain Changer: It's got lots of options to toy with, combined with the fact that its creator is widely renown as a monster pedal guru. It's intriguing. I feel like this could easily get the job done, but my feelings are more scientific about this, not as raw and emotional as the Royal Blue.

          Xotic AC booster: I am not particularly excited or intrigued by this one. But I know that it could more than likely get the job done. It's safe.

          So should I go with the raw emotions, the scientific curiosity or the safe option?

          or something else entirely?

            Yeah thanks man...I love's fantastic.

            I've got three of this guy's pedals now ...this one, plus his "Visa Distortion" & "Soft Delay"

            (that's all of them I think....except for the "mod" version of that Warm Drive) & they're all pretty outstanding.
