    So I'm building a mini-board. On my main board, I use a Barber 1/2 Gainer and absolutely love the voicing. It's more of my guitar/amp without any mid-hump or coloration.

    I know Barber has the smaller footprint Gain changer that would give me the same voicing, but I'm wanting something in an even smaller footprint. Something built in a 1590A enclosure.

    Obviously Barber doesn't have anything with that small of a footprint. But my question is what would get me close? I'm not opposed to going with Mooer or the like - but I'm not sure which of those pedals would get me in the ballpark of the LTD SR voicing I love ... maybe the Blues Crab?

    What suggestions are out there in TGP land? A flat-mid, low gain, 1590A enclosure overdrive pedal - that's what I'm after.

    Wrote a lengthy reply and then hit the wrong button :(
    In short: yes, get the Blues Crab. It has the same kind of smooth drive as the LTD.

    Thanks for the suggestions! Anyone else have suggestions? I'm leaning toward the blues crab I think.
