    Im ready to pull the trigger on a LOvepedal...I was considering the Eternity. I play through a Fender Twin, so I don't want a mid scooped overdrive. I gig on ZZ Top, Judas Priest, Zeppelin, Bad Company...etc.

    Which Lovepedal for me?

    Thanks

    Eternity will do it. I honestly don't use it on my blues gigs, because it feels and sounds so instant "Rock n Roll" when I click it.

    With a Twin, mos def find a Roadhouse or handwired Burst version. The others I've tried have tended to be a wee bit thin and bright, IMO.

    You'll need a boost of some kind for Priest and heavier sounds, though.

    either an eternity or, maybe, a 200lbs of Tone...It's a fuzz, but it can get into the classic rock OD range

    What about the COT50 Gold? Or an FT OCD (as long as your not playing through a Fender Twin w/ a JBL)?
    Maybe a BB Preamp.

    I don't use a Twin (but I do use a DR, among other amps), and the BoR fits the bill nicely for 70s era crunch :phones

    Unless his amp is already overdriving at a good click on its own, then the COT50 Gold won't be enough. I know-- I play the same sort of stuff, and just sold the COT50 Gold because it wasn't near enough gain or "rock" enough for my needs.

    I would think that the Eternity would not have enough gain for the early '80's hard rock/metal stuff (isn't that an 808 clone? Maybe the Purple Plexi.

    (The weirdest thing just happened. As I was typing in "Purple Plexi", I accidentally held one of the keys down too long, and the link for it appeared on the screen.)

    I really think the Woodrow fits the bill. Especially with single coils. Great pedal, and not thin or bright.
