I got mine yesterday too and played it briefly. It definitely has a woody sound, but I would not describe it as a warm. The glass knob has a lot of treble on tap. It has more gain then I expected. My amp isn't very dark (Fender) so that might have something to do with it.
I'm digging it so far.
Got mine yesterday and it kicked 2 pedals off the board. Very smooth and silky with lots of useable drive on tap. Like it way better than the Little Green Wonder that I was trying out (which by comparison felt stiff, somewhat fuzz like and more ragged) - so I sent that back to PGS. The instructions say to start with the Glass knob off - and add treble (glass) as needed. With it off - my amp tone sounds untouched and perfect. With a bit of the treble boost in there - it adds some snap but still has that smooth silky feel. Gets a bit much with the Glass knob turned up. FWIW - I had a stock black eternity pedal a few years ago and was playing a different amp and it sounded really harsh so I sold it. So I am guessing that these pedals are pretty amp dependent for what kind of feel you get.
I was throwing the idea around of getting one of those LGW cb' versions myself. I already have the SHOD and DBD which are not going anywhere...I bought the E burst on a whim. What was the difference between the two besides the fuzz like raggedness?
Well, practically everything is different. For fear of starting a hate crime war - - let me just say that the LGW is not a bad sounding pedal. It just is not at all in the TS style overdrive category - and I have lots of experience there being a TS nerd. It has more of a square wave distortion going on - which is perfectly suited for some players. It borders on fuzz. And there is a stiffness to it that you feel in your fingers and pick attack especially when you try to do a legato run and that smoothness and fluid ease of motion is just not there. But the LGW does sound great cranking out the chords and keeping articulation. It does have a cranked class A tube amp sound that is definitely musical and I can see why lots of people love it.
Straight from the Mad Professor himself:
As designer Bjorn Juhl put it:
"Whereas Little Green Wonder is a TS-style pedal, but one for those who don't generally like TS-style pedals.
Big difference between these two pedals would be headroom, distortion style and distortion depth and treble response, output level, function of tone knob, color, symbol.... they do share a common layout of mechanical components."
There is WAY more headroom on the LGW - which I could care less about...
The distortion is harder than any TS style pedal I have played - moving into Fuzz
There is a lot of SAG in this pedal as you turn up the drive and get into the fuzz
The eternity is smooth and creamy with more violin tone.
Both are great.
