    NPD - The holy grail of overdrives? We'll see!



    Most people probably know what this is by now. Basically two Marshall Bluesbreaker clones in one box, with some minor tweaks. I did get the higher gain red side, since A. that seems to be the most popular configuration, and B. it'll thus flip well, if I don't like it better than my MacGuffin (which itself is a Bluesbreaker+Klone).

    I'm geeked to give it a go. Probably end up trying it with the Fillmore.

    Sweet!

    Lately I've really been considering finding a good sounding, single channel amp and just using pedals to change things up. Anxious to hear your thoughts after you've played it a bit!

    Will do! I LOVE Bluesbreaker-esque pedals. They sound awesome, so I'm really looking forward to this. TGP tends to gush about this one, as does Daniel from That Pedal Show. So we'll see.

    Seriously the most overrated pedal, short of a Klon. I may be extremely biased, but my MacGuffin is more useful, and sounds better. OFF TO YE OLDE EBAY SHE GOES!

    Don't you own a mini Mark? Why the fuck are you wasting your time with OD pedals anyway?

    Because they're fun.

    Yeah. No good. I mean, subjectivity and all, yadda yadda. But I'm not at all impressed.

    Probably a BB Preamp, if I can hunt down the AT version. I love the regular one.
