    Okay folks I've been gifted a bit of cash from my wife, who said go and buy yourself a pedal :) Gotta luv her.

    I've always wanted to own either a Chandler Limited Little Devil Boost or a BK Butler with the bias knob.

    This is purely an indulgence... so which pedal should I go for. I'm a Strat / plug and play guy who plays Blues/Rock and nothing much else.

    So which pedal should I go for? I'm in the UK so cannot play a BK before buying, but I have played a Color Boost and loved just about everything it could do.

    Thanks!

    I have only tried the Chandler and I love it.

    Here it is, with rotary switch set to 2nd position, volume at 2 o'clock, toggles set to mids and bright. Guitar is an old Ibanez Roadstar with a slightly hot Bartolini in the bridge into a home made amp that is more or less like a Marshall 1987, but with a master. The amp would be slightly dirty without the pedal, but nowhere near metal crunch or anything:

    Yes, no other pedals on, 2x12 cab mic'ed up, can't remember the mic. There is a Boss pedal in the chain(but not activated), so there is one buffer, I guess. There are WGS speakers in the cab, can't remember the model. The song is from the second Alice Cooper record.
