    I have an original LTD that has replaced my TS808 as a clean boost.
    I use it mostly to tighten everything up with an old Twin.
    What will I gain(no pun intended) by using the Silver version?
    thanks,
    mark

    More bass & treble, less mids, tho' the mid response is not completely flat.

    IMO the Silver is voiced a bit brighter than the black LTD.

    The Silver LTD sounds very natural and blends right in with your amp! Having the Internal Bass and presence pots are perfect for matching your guitar to the amp!

    Is the LTD a TS-variant or is the mid-hump less pronounced? Nothing wrong with a mid-hump, but I've got that covered.

    Never tried the black LTD but IMO the Silver LTD is not a TS type pedal tone wise, it has a more open and rawer tone to it.

    From the clips on barber's site, the black one seemed to have the TS sound more so than the silver.

    OD's are a pain in my keester!

    Gotta agree here and the black version is just perfect for me, with it´s slight mid-hump it works perfect for leads. Not as humpy as a TS which can be to much for some amps/players.

    I also like the BLack LTD's slight mid hump. It works nicely with the gain down to "edge of breakup." Really feels like a slightly more pushed amp.
