Red Snapper vs. Silver Kiss

How does the Red Snapper compare to the Silver Kiss. Are they similar? Which do you think might be a better match for a Menatone TBIAC?

I don't think either would need to be stacked with the TBIAC.
Maybe run both after so you can boost them with the Boost on the TBIAC.
The Silver Kiss will have a lot more tonal options, due to the three EQ knobs.
I'd say the SK can do what the RS can do, but not vice versa. :)

I mostly agree with everything that Last Nerve said, with one exception: While the SK is more versatile than the RS, you can't make it sound like the RS.

The SK has a different flavor to the OD than the RS---and, to me, it kind of sounded like the OD was riding on top or alongside the clean sound, as opposed to being integrated as it is in the RS.

Both very, very good pedals.

I'm reviving this thread. I just bought a Silver Kiss MKII and really like it but you know us tone-questers, by golly. We're never happy just what with us have got, you bet'cha. ;)

I've never played a Red Snapper, but from the vids I've seen and comparisons I've read I don't think they are really very similar. I think the Mk.2 is more aggressive in its OD character, but like I said I haven't tried an RS myself.

I have a red snapper and really like it. Really cuts through for lead work and stays bright in tone.

i`ve got one of the mkI caberetlinda SK`s for my setup. have not tried the snapper. i play an old V into a supro which is a darker full tone; the SK adds top end sparkle and excellent boost and clarity for both riffs and chords.

This pedal is a pain in my neck. No I mean it, the pain goes down to my upper back.
OT: I built my first pedal (a Rat clone) this weekend, and decided to look inside my SK to see how the off-board wiring was done. I know Nick does good work, but... wow. I could not believe how immaculate everything was. It really is a work of art. I was completely baffled. Like, how the hell did you install the LED? How does it connect to the bundle of cable with the heat-shrink? How on earth are the pots connected?! My brain exploded. It gave me a whole new respect for pedal builders, and Nick in particular. My Rat clone still looks like, ironically, a rat's nest. But my next build will be better!

Great work, man. Oh yeah, and it sounds like angels singing. I'm certain if Nick stops making the Silverkiss, it'll take on a mythical status.

The new Silver Kiss Trinity is awesome and I cannot recommend it enough. Twice the gain of the regular MKII and toggle switches for compression modes and mis frequencies. Great pedal with a very transparent sound and endless tweaking options that are all useable. I have yet to find an unuseable sound in this thing.

Thanks a lot, pal. I just got the SK MKII and now you are making me want the Trinity. I've already spent too much on pedals in a weak economy - I can't take it anymore!!! :jo :crazy :crazy :eek: :messedup :jo :jo :bkw
