I've had all the LTD's, sliver, V1, V2, Flat EQ, Gain Changer & 1/2 Gainer.. The green LED V1 LTD is my favorite overdrive pedal. I still have my red LED V1 & 1/2 Gainer. I love my Tubescreamers, but they can't do what an LTD does. The V1 LTD green LED has the best midrange of any pedal I've come across. It will cut thru any mix and still retain your natural tone somehow.. I know it has slightly different components than the red LED V1. The green is the best OD. I still have my Maxon 808 & Aramat modded TS9 and I will always have them. If you want a great sounding pedal to put in front of a clean amp my LTD V1 is king! I won't list all the OD pedals I've owned, but it's well over 100 the past 20 years. Thank god for TGP, Ebay & Reverb to be able to buy and sell without losing my ass.. This is just one dude's opinion and can only speak for myself..
