    I am looking to replace my Sparkle drive and see Barber is making some cool pedals. The discription of the two seem simular in many ways. Can anyone give me an overview of the tone of these pedals in comparison to each other?

    ps: I am using Les Pauls in to Rivera/Marshall/Fender amps. Tone and playing style is sort of a combination of Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes and Dickey Betts.

    Thanks.

    Someone else with more direct knowledge will chime in, I'm sure, but the biggest difference is LTD=fenderish light OD and DD=more gain, marshall in a box-style. I am looking at both myself and will probably end up trying both just to see what they're like.

    Thanks. As you can see with my choice of amps, that is the two camps I am in. So maybe one of each would be perfect.
