I'm very late to the Barber party. Recently switched up my drive section and 2 of the new pedals I added were the newest versions of the Gain Changer SR & Direct Drive. To say I'm impressed would be an understatement. As someone who has, probably like many of you, had all of the "it" drive pedals over the years, these two are at the top for me. I'm using a retro-sonic distortion & EH op amp muff for heavier sounds, but the combination of the gain changer and direct drive will do damn near anything I want. Super versatile pedals! Anyone else using these as your main drives?
