I had a sparkle drive many years ago. Got rid of it looking for the next best OD, as one does, but damn I missed having a great clean blend od. I've tried a few different but never thought they stacked up to the sparkle drive. I decided I needed to have one again and searched Reverb for a used one, I ended up finding a a JHS modded sparkle drive and godddddamn it's awesome. More transparent, more gain, and more OOOOMPH than the stock version. This a perfect base overdrive and it plays really well with my Z-Lux. I like it more than my TIM, Timmy, and Archer. It's become my always on OD pedal.
The other pedal I just got was a JHS Ruby Red, which is a JHS Superbolt with a boost. The boost can be placed before or after the Superbolt circuit. If it's placed before it then it SLAMS the Superbolt circuit and gives you a sweet gated fuzz.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
