    Hi,

    I had a black SCH1 that has been stolen, and I have found a Grey one.

    It has more headroom than my SCHZ (like my previous SCH1) but maybe too much. The black one was warmer in my souvenirs. I think that I like the grey less than the black. Maybe even less than the Z.

    Am I crazy? does any one of you have the two models (black and grey) ?
    Is there a real difference between them? I mean : is the circuit different?

    Grey is older than the black. I have been told they are the same. I own two blacks and they don't sound exactly the same, I'm sure this may be true to an extent with all SCH-1's . (and all pedals for that matter)

    Has anybody ever compared the two pedals (tone and cuircuit-wise)?

    I just want to be sure that I'm not crazy...

    I don't think the grey and black SCH-1's have different circuitry. I own both, but my grey one was rehoused into a true bypass box. The grey one is more collectable for some reason from what I understand. The SCH-Z is a different animal however.

    did you ever compare the grey and black version side to side? do they sound the same?

    I'm about to sell the grey box to find a black one, but maybe it's pointless if both pedals are the same. But the felling I have when I play the Grey is not the same as when I used to play my black SCH1.
