I was able to run one of these through the paces last night and was rather pleasantly surprised. I'm not a huge fan of JHS cause they seem to be hipster popular right now which makes them overpriced IMO. But this I got used for a great deal that made sense to give it a shot. That Morning Glory circuit definitely has something special happening. I've been rolling through the blues breaker's over the last few months and this one, for my rig, and my playing, has got the magic. It brings a snap and life to the notes that other pedals lack. It's subtle, but beautiful. Single coil bliss. The ts808 side isn't as enlightening an experience, but it certainly is a strong enough player to replace my stock ts808. The tweaks to the bass and fullness elevates it above my ts808. I used the Ibanez primarily as a solo boost. This one is serviceable as both a boost and a dirty rhythm sound. I always found the Ibanez a bit thin for rhythm. I don't stack OD's often, and I'm still experimenting with this pedal as such. Just the concept of being able to switch the order of the circuits is cool (though I don't think it really makes THAT big of a difference overall). I tend to set it and leave it. Less is more. This pedal has allowed me to replace probably three separate pedals for different gain stages on my board. For now...I like that (until I get sick of it and want more options haha). Dangit that MG tone is inspiring. Play on.
