Got an amp serviced recently, and the tech/co-owner of the amp building and servicing business demonstrated his fantastic repair work by playing thru one of their newly developed overdrive pedals. I've been looking for a decent overdrive, but hadn't decided on anything. After listening to Tim play rhythm and lead with no chordal tones muddiness and still a total clarity of solo notes, I got me a George Evans Scorcher Overdrive
. Not cheap, but there's no flipping this beauty.
Sorry for the light review, but all I know is that I can't wait till they give birth to their 22W amp later this year! Take that as 4/5 for the Scorcher. Woulda got 5 bar the price tag: $325. Still worth it though!
