    Re: Favorite Dual OD/Distortion Pedal?

    i tend to use my deluxe reverb 90% of the time and swapping guitars doesnt seem to necessitate setting changes much. almost all my guitars have more vintage style pups which may help but even strat to lp, the same settings sound good

    VS-XO for blues jams... KOT when I wanna be finicky about tone.

    The Blackstone sounded fantastic, but hard to re-dial in after swapping guitars, amps.

    yes. mini dual triodes, not 12ax7s. the different pedals use different tubes, cant recall what off the top of my head

    The tubes in the Seymour Duncan pedals are some kind of military-grade sub-miniature tubes, right? Not your typical 12AX7s?

    i dont think they are designed to run at other voltages. there are actual tubes inside the duncan pedals running at real plate voltages

    It's been said already, but for a side-by-side overdrive/distortion, the good ol' Jekyll & Hyde covers a lot of ground.

    The TT pedals do have tubes in them. And they don't run "starved plate".

    Not sure about the twin tube but the Blackstar HT Dual does have a preamp tube.

    I think the only dual pedal I have is the Ibanez Jemini

    I like it how the truetone has in/out for both sides

    Here are two pedals that don't come up very often.
    Both from Turetone, the XO VSO overdrive and the Jekyll and Hyde distortion.

    Bought a Jekyll and Hyde and realized that I was using it more as a boost and OD so I traded it in for the XO VSO.

    The XO-VSO's left side is a transparent OD which also makes a good boost.
    Its right side has more compression and gain. Also, both channels allow you to cut the bass.
    Both sides stack nicely.
    Also, the pedal has external in / out jacks for each channel and they can be used separately.

    Really like the pedal, yet I'm more comfortable with my older FD2 regularly use it.

    I think it depends when it was made and that Blackstar switched all their tube pedals to 22V at some point. My HT Dual is older and has the 16v AC adapter. My HT Dist is newer and has a 22v adapteróit also has a soft foot switch, though i bought it used used so that may not be stock. The HT Metal was a later pedal, so those may all be 22V.
