A couple of current threads have got me thinking out loud about this one. How many of you have had the opportunity to A/B two of the same pedal? Have you found them to be more or less the same, or very different sounding than one another? There's something kinda cool about the notion that every Lovepedal Eternity sounds different, and I'm not talking about the one-off hi-gain/lo-gain mods, or that batch of 'special' bursts that Sean's apparently working on in his spare time. I'm talking about the regular production E's, w/the standard op-amp. I've had one since last summer, and tho' I've not had a chance to compare mine to any others, I'm pretty sure it's unique, as I don't think I get the same tones that many players here describe - and when I swapped out the chip for a TLO72ACN, the result was very different from what I'd been led to expect from info I picked up here at TGP. On the other hand, I was so knocked out by a Timmy pedal I recieved around Christmas that I called Paul to ask if it could be an *extra-good-sounding* one - and he assured me that given component tolerances & the simplicity of design it was almost impossible that one would sound any better or worse than another. So I ordered another one and after extensively comparing the two using the same brand of fresh batteries, I have to admit I can hear no difference whatsoever. And I've gotta admit, I like the reliability of Paul C.'s stuff. But this is the only pedal I'm ever likely to have more than one of, and I know many of you have gone thru' several of the same pedal and a few of you have even kept multiple 'back-ups'. So, what's the general concensus, if any? Which brand/model's the most consistent from unit to unit? Which ones vary the most? And what's your preference - That elusive *mojo* that comes w/the 'luck-of-draw' factor, or the dependability that comes w/a builder's more *scientific* approach to construction? ..Thanks.
