    Klon KTR - out of production?

    I got the Klon KTR email from Humbucker this morning. I figured ‘what the hey, why not give it a whirl?’. I get to see what the fuss (or non-fuss) is about at a not-exhorbitant price.

    Barber pedals

    Well, for the record, I'm using the full size Direct Drive Low Gain, Direct Drive Super Sport, and the new DD/DC. AND your full size Launch Pad and Tone Press. David, what I would really really really really really like to see is a Dual Launch Pad. Having two Sensitivity settings that are...

    So that Lehle Mono Volume Pedal...

    I just got my Lehle volume pedal. So far I like it very much. In my rig, it does not seem to add high end. If anything, it seems to add a bit of girth in the lows or low mids. Just a tad. My pedal board has a buffer in front, dirt and other stuff (chorus, delay), then the Lehle volume. The...

    Barber B Custom Super Sport

    I have (and use) several Barber dirt pedals - Direct Drive w/mod board, Direct Drive Super Sport, LTD, Dirty Bomb, Direct Drive Low Gain, and the new Direct Drive Dual Channel. My favorites are the DDSS, DDLG, and now the DD/DC. None of the above Barber pedals are noisy in my experience. With...

    It looks like its shipping, gfisys website says "in stock".

    Barber DD/DC - Direct Drive Dual Channel - amazing

    I found one at Humbucker Music. Fantastic pedal, sounds just as good my DDSS and DDLG....which is what the DD/DC is in one housing. YAY! Way overdue, IMHO. I do like it (and the DDSS) better than the Compact DD. I agree that it's very amp-like in feel and response, just super cool. David...

    Euro/Dollar Rate Makes Weehbo JCM Anniv. Cheap(er) Right Now

    I just ordered one, Eike said he could ship it by the end of the week. I'm quite anxious to give the JCM drive Ltd a work out. I also have a JVM drive on the way, very cool sounding pedals.

    Basic Audio "Zippy" Fuzz

    Wow! That is just stupid cool! I really like it. I'm just beginning my real journey into fuzzdom. This clip puts the Zippy on the checkout list, as well as the Altered Destiny. Very cool.

    Mic Stands: Round base vs. Tripod w/boom

    The tripod fits around a pedal board much better. The round, heavy base is much better in a bar fight. Not that I've ever had to use my mic stand in that manner.

    The Vertex Axis = BBE Ben Wah - Bermuda Triangle Axis Wah Continued

    There may be some mods, but I'd have to find a stock Dunlop to do some comparisons and really see if there's any difference. It sounds pretty good, but not $270-worth-of-mods good. Keeley practically rebuilds a Dunlop for less. Why didn't I go that route, or go with a Teese? :jo I'll get in...

    The Vertex Axis = BBE Ben Wah - Bermuda Triangle Axis Wah Continued

    Yea, but the PCB board is covered in goop. A few component values are still visible, but not many. I'll compare it to some Crybaby board pics online.

    The Vertex Axis = BBE Ben Wah - Bermuda Triangle Axis Wah Continued

    Well, count me in with the taken. I ordered an Axis wah back in May from a dealer. I kept getting the "sorry, it's backordered" story, then the "Vertex increased their minimum dealer order" story. I should have gotten a refund (which was offered at one point), but I bought into the...

    NVPD! New V-Picks Day!!

    I'm sold on V-Picks. A local store started selling them, they have a nice variety, so I could try several out to see which felt the best. I went with the Euro II, very similar in size and thickness to what I've been using. Really nice picks, wish I would have tried these a long time ago!

    Barber DD or Super Signa Drive

    The B-Custom Super Sport (bit of a souped-up Direct Drive) is definitely worth checking out. I think it has more going for it than the regular Direct Drive. Like a few others in this thread, I highly recommend it.

    Which OD replaced your Barber Half Gainer?

    I've had a Barber Direct Drive LG for a while (which bumped an LTD), tried the 1/2 gainer, went back to the DDLG.

    barber burn unit EQ - STILL ROCKING

    I had a BUEQ for a long time, ended up selling it. I have other Barber pedals, need to get the BUEQ again. Very cool pedal.

    Strobostomp 2-removing 1M resistor

    Why was a cap removed? Related to removing the 1meg resistor?

    trying to snag a Zen drive for a reasonable but wondering about the Jetter Gain Stage

    Alf Hermida is shipping Zendrives pretty quickly these days, if I'm not mistaken. I wouldn't pay inflated prices for Hermida pedals. Check out his website.

    If you only can use 2 pedals, what are they?

    Single channel amp (Valvetech 50), then it's a Hermida Dual Boost and a Kar Krash (or Zendrive). It it's my channel switcher, then the Dual Boost and an analog delay.

    Zendrive...Freak'n A!

    Whoa, really? That sounds like something I"m after. I love the Zendrive, but sometimes need something with a bit more bad attitude. But not too bad.

    Will a Zendrive blow away my modded SD-1 into a 2204?

    Will one blow away the other? Only if one of the pedals uses C4 or nitro. However....as mentioned in other posts, they really are different animals. It's been a long time since I've played an SD-1. But I do have a Zendrive, and through a Marshall-flavored amp, it will take on some of the...

    RMC Wahs?

    I have an RMC3, and a Wizard Wah. I'm using the Wizard more right now, with both humbucker and single coils, sounds great. It seems to fit in with what I want to hear. The RMC3 is killer as well, I could probably tune it to sound like the Wizard. I also tried the Wilson Rippah Q, very nice...

    Lollar Pickups. Blonde vs. Blackface

    Mmm, I might be tempted to say that the Blondes are more Knopfler, perhaps. Blackface makes me think of Gilmore. Anyway, I tried both, a went with a set of Blackfaces. I like the extra bit of beef in them.

    Retro Sonic Chorus - any fans?

    I like it quite a bit. I removed a cap to brighten up the chorus a touch. The vibrato is cool, but not a univibe. I haven't had issues with running chorus along with overdrive, though I'd have to say I'm in the medium gain overdrive camp.

    Does anyone like the ZEN with Single Coils?

    I think it's great with single coils. I tend to set the Voice somewhere between 3 and 5 o'clock. Gain maybe 11 o'clock.
