So my dad and I had our own little gear day. I showed up with my Trainwreck type kit amp, my Strat with Duncan Custom Shop EVH pickup, and some pedals. I thought he'd like the Bad Monkey...for the money it's a great pedal, but once I turned on the Crunch Box, the Bad Monkey just got KILLED! My Dad loved the Crunch Box because it was so live, sounded and felt like a good amp, but at livingroom levels through the little custom 5F1 I built for him. I'd like to surprise my Dad with a pedal...something in the same price catagory as the Crunch Box, but *not* the Crunch Box...simply because we hate duplicating a pedal that one of us already has. Since I don't do the pedal dance anymore, and the Crunch Box was a Christmas impulse buy...I really have no idea what's out there that's good! Suggestions?
