    Hey, I was wondering if there are any other gain pedals out there like the sparkle drive, where you can blend in the clean signal with the gain side? I really like that feature, but would like it with a different flavor of drive. Thanks...

    Nick Greer Easy C and Green Giant-both transistor based OD's, I'm sure a very different flavor from the Sparkle Drive.

    Can anyone describe the distortions of the Easy C and the Green Giant vs the Sparkle Drive? How about sound clips - there aren't any on their site.

    Check with Frostbite Slim, he posted about the Green Giant recently. I haven't heard these pedals in person, but Nick's stuff is transistor based and leans toward the fuzz side of the equation...

    I posted an identical thread a little while back, and got pretty the same answers- other options are the Danelectro Wasabi pedals- the overdrive and distortion have blends.
