    Hi all, I'm in need of a second stage od, and was hoping to get some opinions on the greer burning goat and bogner wessex. My first stage is a greer lightspeed which I love and I've previously thought about the southland but the clips just don't grab me, it seems a bit raspy.

    I play a Suhr tele through mainly a Carr rambler


    Thanks

    Anyone? I have a deal about to go through on a wessex so I may end up with both, wife permitting.

    I know nothing of the Wessex. The burning goat is my favorite overdrive though. That's probably not much help since I can't compare the two. It's hard to go wrong with the goat though.

    Thanks guys, although it's 1 all at the moment so more opinions are very welcome.

    The Burning Goat is a great OD and it pairs nicely with rhe Lightspeed. I don't know the Wessex.

    [not sure what you're going for]

    I just got the Wessex about a week ago and while I'm still in the honeymoon phase, the pedal absolutely kills. Fattens everything up without overdoing or losing anything, dead silent, and most of all a ton of fun to play. Right now I've been using my 335 with it and am blown away - it's the real deal.

    I think the Wessex is good, but Rockbox Boiling Point is more articulate and present, and the Caroline Haymaker is a little more ... butch. All three are very similar. Sadly, I can't speak to the Greer. -E

    The Wessex isn't half bad. I got to try one out the other day. It is loud, as in: tons of headroom. Definitely beefs up single coils, but without getting too aggressive. The gain gets hot, but not unruly. I'd consider it low-medium. But...I didn't like it $230 worth. It sounded sorta...stiff, to me.

    The BG sounds a little edgier to me in demos at Ieast.
