Does the Gainster sound like the Red Snapper?

I have heard that these two pedals are similar.

I am considering buying an old big box Gainster, but own the Red Snapper (4 knob) and dont want to duplicate.

Opinions?

They sound totally different.
RS is open, clear, transparent, a touch bright.
Gainster is more tweedy and rude.

I've had the 3 knob RS, big box Gainster and small box Gainster. They sound nothing like the 2 od-1's I've had. I have a Thunder Tomate booteek od-1 clone and that sounds nothing like either the RS or Gainster.

The ONLY thing they have in common tone wise is they are all low to medium od's.
