I bought two new overdrives this past week, and was able to play at my gig with them over the weekend. My purchases were a used Greer Relic Drive, and a new Lovepedal Blackface Deluxe. The Relic Drive is a TS variant, with mid push emphasis moved from high mids to low mids. This pedal sounds really good through the Cure. You can get a good medium plus to full on overdrive out of this pedal. It sounds very amp like. The Lovepedal Blackface was a huge surprise. This pedal compliments the Cure so well due to it's F style voicing. Through my strat plugged in, you can get a very convincing Blackface cranked to 6 tone. Sounds so much like a Super Reverb through this pedal. Very much an SRV flavor tone. This pedal has a lot of gain, and canngo to full on overdrive pretty quick. The pedal is voiced bright though, I run mine with the treble turned all the way off. I use the Greer Relic Drive for the most drive, and the Lovepedal for edge of breakup. I could easily reverse their roles though if I wanted. For those looking for a good drive with the F style sound, the Lovepedal does it for me, and YMMV.
GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
