these probably won't generate too much excitement on the tgp, but man are these dunlop pedals are fantastic. the 78 distortion is much different than i expected it to be. i'm using it as a clean boost and sometimes to add just the slightest bit of breakup. it can also get a ton of gain. as a boost it adds a really nice clarity to your tone if you want it to. it doesn't really add brightness, just clearness...clarity!

the overdrive is just as awesome. works great as a boost, but i use it as a really nice overdrive box for rhythm or to add overdrive on amp overdrive. really emphasizes the right freqs.

i'm really blown away by these two pedals. on top of the tone, the price and build quality it outstanding. even when running the pedals on a noisy daisy chain, there's no click at all when switching the pedal on and off. i've had lots of handmade stuff that can't do that.

anway, what i'm saying is that at any price point, these pedals are worth the money due to the way the function and sound. great stuff. well done, dunlop!

anyone else digging these?

ps--ignore the settings on the pedals. they got all twisted when i took them off my board.

I've always wanted to try the '78, but like you said, there's not too much excitement generated on TGP for it.

Most stuff on the market will sound good through a cranked toobamp.

Is the pedal noisy when it's on, but guitar volume off?

i didn't notice any extra noise as i run them, but if you cranked the volume and gain then the noise floor is raised a bit....but that will happen w/ any overdrive pedal. in every way, these are top notch pedals. if you can, give the pedal a try. and you're right about the interest here. some 30 views and only one reply.

Damn, I thought you got a Klon KTR and a AF2 before anyone else did!!! What a letdown...:waiting


j/k Some people around here are corksniffers. Real players can get good tone out of anything. Have fun and experiment with settings. The original MXRs really were BADASS and those couldn't be that far off the mark...:aok

I've always wanted to buy those two pedals. I've heard nothing but good things about the '78 and one of these days I'm going to get them both.

Congrats!
