    Hi there - a query if I may :

    I have, among other things, a Catalinbread Hyper Pak Dirty Channel (Ser #19 ) which is a one-knob version. I really like the basic sound it makes in to the front end of my Marshall JMP combo, but (there's always a but isn't there . . . ) I'd like to get the kind of 'hard' distortion sound that it gets without the huge volume hike and significant background noise (to be fair the JMP accentuates background noise in any remotely noisy pedal but it seems to do so a lot with this pedal).

    I was wondering about maybe just tracking down a 2-knob version, so I could have gain at a lower level than possible with the 1-knob, but thought I'd check for any other suggestions. Does anything spring to mind ?

    Perhaps an OCD?

    Just a thought, the solidgoldfx OTP does a good high gain distortion or a lovepedal purpleplexi?

    The HyperPak isn't a high gain box - medium distortion at best.

    The 2 knobs are the ticket.

    I have a Hyperpak and it sounds identical to my Boss OD3 with gain and tone at 1-o'clock.
