The switch on my beloved BB Preamp crapped out and Xotic has changed the size of the switch so it's going to be a hassle to replace (for me at least). So...I went to Atlanta Discount Music and Jimmy and the boys lined up a few replacement candidates for me to try. I went with the Barber Direct Drive. I used it on a gig last night and I absolutely LOVE it! What a great pedal. It's voiced similar to the BB but has a lot more useable gain on tap. I'm pushing the drive side of my Mesa Lonestar with it and it sings. I also used it last night as a stand alone on the clean channel and it sounds fantastic. I used an EP Booster when it was time for a lead and holy crap, it's HUGE sounding! Anyway, I just wanted to shout out to Barber for a killer pedal and Atlanta Discount for being so damn good at what they do. Both are highly recommended!
