    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)
