    So I use two Gain Changers - one set for high gain and one for low gain, then I saw today that they did a limited run black version of the GC. I pulled the trigger on one of those this morning.

    It should be obvious to most that I'm basically a Barber overdrive collector at this point. I think I have everything they've made. Excited to get this one!

    I still to this day regard the Gain Changer as one of the best - if not THE best - overdrive pedals ever made.

    One too many for sure. I'll give you my ship to address to ease your conscience.

    Use it as a clean boost.

    I agree, GC is extremely versatile and sounds great. But I also think there are SO many great drives...

    This what I want to know. Didn't see it on their website.

    Edit-ok, I see it on their Facebook page. Looks good.

    Yeah I was just browsing around Facebook and found it. A quick email to David to see if they had any left and off my money went soon after.

    I am so incredibly late at posting this to my site. But, it's true, we have black Gain Changers and black Tone Presses for the next couple of months, or until I make more. :)

    I like the GC but I prefer the Barber Compact Direct Drive for higher gain.

    Yeah I'll usually use the Compact Direct Drive as my "highest gain" - for those I have the compact, random build, big box and dual channel Direct Drives (I feel like there's one I'm forgetting right now). I usually always end up with the compact on my board.

    Gain Changer is a killer pedal.
