    Yeah, the Green Rhino has a lot of volume on tap, which probably gives it more headroom when it's set at unison volume. It's a pedal where the gain and volume may be set a bit lower than you would on some other OD's.

    I didnt catch this thread til after the deed was done.. But I too love my GR.. Replaced my TS on my board. GJ hit it on the nose.. Its great in that aspect, not as great for a hot setup. BUT.. Gives enough control to dial in about any thing.. Its the goodness of a tubescreamer, but allows allows more control and goes above and beyond the TS..

    ^ I'm the boss, so I could get away with it...

    I got to spend a few minutes with the GR into the Super. It sounds great with my Strat and the new Tele. The bass and mid controls really let you fine tune the sound, on top of the rest of the extremely responsive controls. This thing has way more volume boost than I was expecting. I usually wait for the family to step out to crank up the amp, but I may have to drag it out into the garage.

    And it would be a shame if that sickness carried through tomorrow.

    So, here I am, Green Rhino in hand... At work, unable to try it out for another 6 hours or so.

    The rest of the day is going to DRAG.

    I think you'll dig that OD pedal. The original Way Huge pedals from the early 90's would be a thing of folklore and super expensive if Dunlop hadn't reissued them. That means you're essentially getting a $500+ pedal for $100.

    It doubles as a pedalboard light......the blue LED is like a car's headlight!

    Its not cheap but i prefer the xotic AC over the rhino.

    However, for cheap thrills and fat tones into a clean fender, the nobels odr-1 is an often overlooked tone monster.

    Re: Way Huge Green Rhino

    So many flavors of Screamer these days. Might I suggest either of these from Ibanez:

    The TS9DX with 4 modes, more bass, hotter, etc…

    Also from Ibanez - SD9M; the Sonic Distortion Modded. Way cooler than a screamer IMO….

    Re: Way Huge Green Rhino

    There's a couple reasons I like the Green Rhino with blackface/silverface Fenders.
    First, the Green Rhino has great control over every aspect of the sound, especially the fatness aka 100hZ knob, so your effected sound isn't skinnier than the straight signal.

    Also, the Green Rhino has just the right amount of compression, so it sounds more like your power tubes being turned up, and also gives you perfect sustain. A drier pedal may give your amp more crunch, but doesn't sustain quite as well.

    If someone were asking for a pedal for an already gainy amp, I'd suggest something different, just because the GR may be too bloated, compressed, and sustaining for that purpose.

    A small builder, Red House (RHE) makes a Mint Drive. This pedal runs $139 and is worth every penny. Super low noise floor and a great dynamic range.
