    For fusionish stuff, hi mid-gain, Guthrie Govanish sound through some pedalplatform clean amp to v30 speakers,

    With humbucker super strat. (Suhr)

    Had a Riot, now have a Burnley.
    For fusion you want the Burnley, the Riot is just a hot-rodded TS to my ears.

    I'm not the biggest Riot fan. The Burnley sounds great, though I'm not sure that it does that they're directly comparable. The Bogner Red or Plexidrive are better alternatives to the Riot.

    I've had the Riot for about 6 months, played the Burnley for about an hour, and really REALLY liked it.

    If I was to buy another pedal right now it would be the Burnley and it would be the Riot that I'd be flipping it for, although I'd obviously do some more in depth comparison.

    Burnley sounded really great to me.

    I can't speak about the Burnley but gigged with the Riot for a few years.

    At the time of its release, the Riot was in a league of its own. It set the pace. Now, there are definitely better pedals out there.

    For example: whilst it's in a bigger enclosure, the Bogner Red kills the Riot.

    I read a lot of comments saying that Burnley is very dark.

    All agree with that?

    The burnley is a more modern sounding with a thunderous bottom from chunk heaven. It's a plug n play while the red needs a sound engineer to dial in.

    It's actually very hi-fi, the thunderous bottom I was talking about fools people into thinking it's dark.

    From the reviews, especially the YouTube by Pete Thorn, they mention it works well into bright amps

    I'm not sure the Burnley is trying to be anything other than a good distortion, not chasing a particular amp tone.

    If I had to compare the two, I'd say the Red. I love that pedal. Even though (as you can see from the amps I own) I had no use for such a pedal. I feel bad for having sold it, simply because it sounded SO GOOD.
