    It apparently stands for Big British. It's somewhat of a blend between a TS and a Marshall Amp In A Box (note - even though the Bluesbreaker was initially a Marshall pedal and named after a Marshall amp, it's not a Marshall Amp in a box pedal; it's its own animal). The BB is probably a little closer to an OCD with a bit more mids.

    I personally love Bluesbreaker-style pedals, but different strokes for different folks! I personally don't really like Tubescreamers (shock, horror).

    I like Tubescreamers, but only as a boost into another overdrive or into a cooking amp. I don't like them as a standalone OD.

    I didn't love the MG in my rig, but I think it sounds great in one of our player's rigs.

    I think we are going to be doing 6-8 songs each night for 4 nights.

    I'm not too worried about learning the songs I don't know. The biggest challenge is keeping them all straight, remembering the intro's to the less familiar ones, haha. I once learned 47 80's rock songs in two weeks, but that was brutal and something I never want to do again.

    I appreciate the concept of a tube screamer as a boost into something else but there’s something about the compression that makes everything feel soft to me. That being said, other TS style pedals work better for me.


    And I’m with you on the MG. Other people make it sound great. It was wicked thin and trebly in my hands.

    I believe a steak cook off is still in order.

    We need to make a me in Nashville or you in Lexington meet up happen.

    I’d even invite @dickjonesify if he’d just build me a carved top already

    I'm so in! I think things will slow down a bit in August. I'll come to you first. Let's make it happen!

    This one currently gets the nod as number one. Tuning stability is rock solid even with significant use of the trem.

    This is one fast moving thread and tough to keep up with haha,

    Going to try to be content with my current build for a while, But I would really like to add a switcher like the new Smaller RJM Mastermind. Would just either need a bigger board or slim down a bit.

    Go to guitar right now, Cadillac Green Gretsch Electromatic 5422(patiently waiting for Lambertone to release his filtertrons to swap in)
    Number two is kind of a split between a PRS 594 Singlecut semi hollow with their version of a PAF
    And a Epiphone LP Custom that I gutted with new electronics, PRS Pots, Switchcraft jack etc Seymour Duncan Seth Lovers.(really really like this pups over the 490 and 498 that came stock)
    I've gotten some strat envy seriously considering a Silver Sky.

    Must be different rigs and fingers.

    I've tried almost all those at store with identical amp of mine or one that's really close to it. At the time I was also with guitars at Fender/Gibson camp so it was really easy to find SG standard or thinline tele to try those out at the store. Maybe my base tone is not just suited for those pedals!

    Now that when I think it the same has also happened with Wampler overdrives.

    One on the middle is go to and Fano comes close second. I should probably sell the double cut.

    All sharks are freaking scary. I'm glad that we don't have those in Finland. One of my wives not so close relative (little cousin or something) Got probably eaten by great white shark when surfing in Australia.
