Has anyone compared the Barber Direct Drive to the Zvex Box of Rock or Distortron?
Interested in this as well
Not at the same time but I have previously owned the Distortron and Compact Direct Direct.
From memory the main difference is more bass and less midrange sharpness/boxey-ness in the Distortron. The CDD might be described as more articulate while the Distortron is looser and raw.
Been a while since I tried the Box of Rock, but I didn't care for its over driven tone. Loose low end and I think it was a little splatty on the treble, Barber CDD is more my type of pedal its much tighter not harsh in the highs and has plenty of gain for hard rock tones!
