What's your take on the Rockett Blue Note vs the Mad Professor Sweet Honey and Barber Direct Drive? I have the last two but wondering if the Blue Note will give me anything those don't. Thanks!
I tried a certain cab sim recommended by a very reliable source, and funny enough, while it fixed my problem pedals, it made the good ones sound worse. No problems with Jetter, Barber, Fulltone, T-Rex, Mad Professor [+Emma] into DI then to system.I have had the LGW too. It is also a good pedal, but still I prefer the Blue Note. I also Ab'ed the Blue Note, Rockett Animal and BB MB. The BB was in the same ballpark but the voicing of both Rocketts just sounded better to me. Bigger and more "real". Same thing when I Ab'ed the in a live setting. The Blue Note killed the BB MB....
Most pedals will sound bad when going direct.. thats not what they are meant for.
But the Blue Note also sounds great into my Tech 21 Blonde set clean and then into my AER acoustic amp!
I have an Afterburner, bought used in the emporium for $250 I think. It is just incredibly versatile and amp like. It even cops some amazing high gain tones. However, it's less expensive little brother is the Flexdrive not the Blue Note so I don't think they really compare. Of course after reading this thread I wanna try one.Anybody try their Afterburner OD from the Master Built Series?
I really just can't imagine how it could be any better than the Blue Note. It's $500 too.
