    I have used a mid-2000 HW white Lovepedal Eternity for almost a decade. It is an outstanding pedal and I've never been unhappy with it. I pair it with an early HW Loveepedal COT50. Just great stuff.

    Here is the current problem. My version of the Eternity is a higher gain model. Basically, it adds gain even with the Drive knob all the way down. This has been fine with early projects, but I need a lower gain option.

    So, any suggestions? I love my tone, I just need less gain. Is there a lower gain Eternity? A different pedal I'm missing? I haven't bought an OD in a long time, so I'm kinda out of it.

    Thanks!

    Klone of some sort? Maybe a Wampler Tumnus with the gain knob all the way down.

    Timmy or Barber Gain Changer would work.

    Lovepedal Super Six- get the SRV mod if you can! The Grey Ghost version is a little more.. forceful (and has a flatter EQ), but it's also a great option.

    Low gain OD is my real passion. I've owned and/or played almost every pedal that fits in that camp. None has impressed me quite like the Thorpy Peacekeeper. Best low-gainer I've ever played.

    Thorpe, eh? I'v never heard of them. The Peacekeeper might be too low OD. Is there a medium gain version. These look interesting...

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I know... The Timmy pedal. I've had one 3 or 4 times over the years. It has never worked for me. Not sure why. I'm sure it's my failing, not the pedals.

    I liked the Timmy with my Vox-style amps, but I prefer the OD11 or SRV Super Six with Fender amps.

    Consider the Lovepedal Amp 11? Gold version sounds good everywhere and the COT50 is already there.

    Maybe a Bearfoot HBOD?

    Or, since an Eternity is a tweaked Tubescreamer, maybe a regular TS or a variant, like a Boiling Point or something.

    How about a regular, non-high-gain eternity?

    Why not simply reduce the amount of input into the existing pedal?

    Simply turn down your volume knob, or put some other pedal before that you can reduce the amount of signal that goes in. Then you can use the volume on the Eternity to make up for output level if necessary.

    Oh, wait, this is TGP. You need to buy another pedal.
