    Another roughly "transparent" od to consider is the Fairfield Circuitry Barbershop.

    Yes and no. My new Dr. Z is a very dark midrangey amp so I'm on the hunt for transparent or even bright drives. However, for my Fenders, I think it'd be great. I definitely want to listen to a few demos. I've never been a big clean blend guy, it always sounds like a clean and dirty guitar playing at the same time. I'm almost allergic to blend controls I think. My compressor is now an old BOSS CS-2 without a blend. But if it's a cool sounding TS, I can always just leave the blend off.

    Yeah I had to do a double take.

    You love their ad for this on Instagram. They compare it to ED and impotency and there is a video of a guy playing guitar and his wife walks in. LMAO.

    Eh, I still want it. :p

    Totally with you on the blend thing, I had it in a Pork Loin. Waste of time and resources as far as I'm concerned!

    Btw in the Sweetwater ad (they still call them "reviews") it seemed a bit brighter than an 808 that they compared it to.

    Yeah they need to call them demos haha.

    Brighter would be better for sure. I will check that demo out!

    I like a blend control myself, particularly on a compressor, where it makes complete sense.

    I know what you mean with OD pedals though. I did like the Sparkle Drive but on some settings it sounded like the pedal was broken (usually when you have just a bit of OD dialled in)

    So you guys remember the JHS Muffuletta with the rotary knob with every classic muff circuit on it?

    Say hello to the JHS Bonsai. The same principle but with TS circuits.

    I'm as happy as a pig in crap. I can use it with my Bassman head and I looooove tubescreamers.

    Here are the demos available thus far:





    And here's Josh talking about the different options:

    You got to get a Wampler Black ‘65 and Catalinbread DLS.

    The Black ‘65 is a forever keeper pedal. The Black ‘65 is the only true keeper pedal that I own.
