Hey all, I have tried a boat-ton of dirt pedals and have a real good idea of what I'm after. Lately I've been thinking maybe a Gain Changer could be"it". My main dirt pedal is a Kingsley Jouster. That's not going to change. It covers the majority of what I want/do/crave. However it lacks a bit in tonal shaping, so I've tried a bit of stacking. I have a Barber Gainster that does a lovely job at what it does, but it's mostly an alternative which is not that versatile on its own. I've had a Timmy which was close but Gainster was better. A germanium Rangemater (Red Rooster clone) was also very good but limited. I even had a DDSS which didn't cut it even with all its tone-shaping (mainly because the trim pots are so hard to access). I do crave a Klonlike authority but not expecting the GC to do that. The GC has been on my radar for years, but I never took the plunge. I've watched the videos but not convinced until I can hear it in person with my own gear. So convince me. I want something that will offer an alternative to the Jouster but stack with it and offer multiple EQ options. That seems like what it was meant for, but hard to tell how effective it is. I'd love if the harmonic content could be affected So I can get a tight metal-esque riffage going as well as smooth bluesy stuff. That's what I've been after really: a (single) pedal that melds with my Jouster to take it up or down. I've been able to do it with 2 pedals, but it defeats the purpose if I need 3 pedals on my board! Two should be plenty. I want a single pedal that has enough range to give convincing metal and offer a light drive of its own. The Jouster is GREAT but doesnt entirely satisfy all the flavors I think up.
