    Thanks. I did some Googling and it seems like the SF running on a battery out of the box has been an issue in the past. No info as to the solution but I'm going to reach out to EHX about it and see what they say.

    Too bad about the battery issue esp from EHX. If I didnt have the Tumnus, I would be taking a hard look at the SF. I think the SF was on my short list of pedals when I tried the Tumnus.

    I use a one spot now, but my first one was on a battery and had no problems.

    Tumnus? Hahaha. I almost want one now because of the name. How awesome.

    You can get the standard Tumnus with Treble, Volume and Gain or Tumnus Deluxe which adds Bass and Mid controls.

    Very cool. After contacting EHX, I'm going to send the SF to them to look at. It's $25 to cover the cost of repair and shipping. They may just send me a new one if it can't be repaired to work on battery as it should.

    Oh hell then do that, youd spend more than that in parts and time. It may end up being out of pocket for a while but seems EHX takes care of the customers

    If it's a simple as a capacitor or diode, that's pretty cheap. I can deal with that as I probably have the value on hand but if it's something that's on the SMT board, I don't have the small tools to work with SMT components, or the magnifying glass....LOL. But yeah, I'll let them sort it. I'm perfectly happy with the OD-3. I got this as a "hey, let's check it out and see what all the hubbub is about" thing.

    I ended up sending my Soul Food in to New Sensor for them to work on it. I got it back on Friday. It was worth it. Nice pedal. I like how dynamic it is and how it responds. Only messed with it on my practice rig at home. I'll take it to rehearsal this week and give it a go there.

    You could say that. Last night we had rehearsal and I ran it left on pretty much the whole time. I got my clean tones by rolling off the guitar volume. Talk about touch sensitive. Gain was set to about 1 o'clock, level about 10-11 o'clock and the tone anywhere from 10 - 1, usually around noon. My amp gain is off; it's the plexi/jmp-ish model in the Vox AD30. There's still some breakup but it's very clean and clear. The Soul Food at those settings put it right at the sweet spot without overly changing the tone of the amp. I've heard people describe it as an extension of the amp tone and it does it well. Very nice pedal.

    Pretty much....

    I eat Soul Food, I like it. I've never had a Klon, or even a Klone, but I like what this pedal does for me.

    That’s because with the gain down your signal is not gong through the clipping diodes. The Klon’s gain control mixes between a clean boost and an overdrive.

    Another thing about transparent Klone boosts -I think you have to be careful about how you use Klones style pedals in a full band.

    Example (and I have many) . I don't use my Jrockett Archer Klone on songs with an acoustic guitar -unless it's a distinct lead part -because a transparent boost will really articulate the attack on your picking which will sit all over a mix with an Acoustic or Hollow body electrics with a top end (Like a Gretsch)

    Also don't generally use it for rhythm arpeggio type parts -due to how much it punches out the notes in the mix.

    Soul Food is easily the best approximation of Klon for the price -its a super value and a great OD on it's own and sort of it's own thing because of the differences as you point out. I think the J Rockett stuff is my favorite overall (and I've tried them all), and the Tumnus is suprisingly great too for being relatively inexpensive.

    I've seen bands where both guitarists are driving klone pedals hard and it doesn't work well because of the "pop" and "snap" of the mids and top end fighting (they are double humpin' ) -it's sort of like back in the day when two guitarists on stage squashed their signals with BBE Sonic Maximizers and both guitarists suddenly had swirling harmonic content fighting each other -dude somebody sit back!
