I'm havin a helluva time trying to decide which overdrive is gonna be what I'm lookin for. No place around me stock's boutique pedals for me to try out so I'm lookin for some insight. I have narrowed my search to the Barber LTD, Xotic BB Preamp, Menatone Red Snapper, Menatone Blue Collar, and maybe NOC3 firefly. I am looking for a low-medium gain overdrive with a real smooth singing blues tone. No harshness or bitey highs wanted here, just a round singing blues overdrive. My first question is what's the tonal difference gonna be between the LTD and the LTD SR? I know the SR has a flatter response but what does this sound like compared to the LTD? I am afraid the BB might have too much gain for what I am lookin for while it does seem to be very smooth. I just stumbled across the menatone pedals and they seem very interesting. What's the difference between the 2? Any1 with experience with any of these care to describe the +'s and -'s?
