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.
