    Hello!
    Newbie here with a question that prolly has been answered but i cant find it!
    Can anybody please explain what the difference between these two pedals is? Im a very recent Barber convert and currently own the SF and the LTD Silver. Love both of them dearly and want to get another LTD. I think my guitar/setup needs some help in the mids so probably the SR isnt the best choice.
    So gentlemen, please enlighten me! :)
    Cheers!

    I have the silver LTD, also. Love that pedal. If I were to get another one, I'd get the 1/2 Gainer-basically, two LTD's in one pedal. The two channels are independent of each other (you can't stack them.) However, it looks like the midrange knob makes it the most versatile LTD to date.

    Thanks for answering guys!

    However, my question was this though:
    What is the difference between The black LTD v.1 and v.2?

    Does anybody know?

    I don't know exactly what the difference is, but I do know this.
    Dave himself has said the V2 will make your strings sound like they're a gauge thicker.
    It has slightly more ooomph in the midrange, particularly on single notes.
    I have the SR and want to try the V2. The SR is just too flat for my liking - I have a Timmy to cover that stuff anyway.
    Basically they took the original and improved it to make V2.
    If you like the Silver, then you really can't go wrong with V2.
