So I've always been in love with the thick guitar sound of the Wipers, and I know that Greg Sage used an MXR Distortion + into an Ampeg amp. While I'm not looking to exactly cop his tone, I love the thickness and warmth his guitar has. I often use a Rat of some variety as my prime distortion pedal now, and sometimes with a Smallsound/Bigsound F*** OD for some extra juice. I'd like to dip my toe into some Germanium goodness, but I'm not sure where to go. I know a lot of people don't like current reissue MXR Dist + and claim it sounds thin. So I could track down a used MXR. But the new EQD Gray Channel seems to have a germanium option (as well as a host of other options, one of which is like the DOD 250, which I also love) for not a ton more money than a vintage MXR. Can anyone comment on the Gray Channel's sound?
