The Trifecta works great with pedal steel. Smooth, punchy, or gritty depending on how the strings are attacked. The pedal can be set to eliminate that "sizzly" high-end that fuzz pedals typically produce with steel. Tone and sludge controls are voiced well.
Setting for pedal steel:
My Barber Trifecta sounds good but the low strings sound a little "woofy". The sound is not "boomy" but rather the lows lack a little "crunch". Are there any adjustments that may take care of this?
As far as what appear to be "high gain" distortion pedals, what are the pros and cons of the Diamond Fireburst vs MI Crunchbox vs SubDecay Blackstar vs ToneFreak DragonFly?
General tone? Smooth? Crunchy?
Ability to "clean up" with guitar volume rolled back?
Ability to "tweak" tone...
