Went to Guitar Guitar today to try out some pedals with my Egnater Rebel. The rebel drive is nice, I was just looking for something different. I tried out the 2 Suhr drive pedals, an MI Audio Crunch Box, and a Fulltone OCD.
Suhr Riot - nice, but just a bit too much of everything. Too much gain, and the tone control got unusable after 12 o'clock.
Suhr Shiba Drive - opposite of the Riot - not enough of everything. Needed a bit more gain for me, and the overall sound of the pedal was a bit plastic. Not a bad pedal, but not what I was after.
MI Audio Crunch Box - SHIT! Next...
Fulltone OCD - Winner by a country mile. Incredibly good pedal. Nice open sound, enough gain for me (not ubergain, but plenty on tap) - tone control was usable across the whole range, and the HP/LP switch is cool too.
So, without further ado, I present my new toy -
Sound clips coming soon (maybe).
This won't make you a better player, you know. You'll still be sloppy and awful, with bad vibrato and shitty tone. And herpes.
