Effects guys: anything out there similar to an old Banzai Fireball II?

Used to have one, wasn't using much, sold it thinking I didn't need it, & now I wish I had it back. But they're hard to find, & the new iteration (III) is different from the one I had (II), so I'm wondering if A) anybody remembers these pedals, and B) there's anything currently available that's in the same ballpark. Would be using for boosting a dirty amp, rather than as a stand-alone dist.

 

Maybe a Fulldrive? :idk: What else wouldja look at?

 

Thanks!

Fulltone Fulldrive II with the comp switch is the closest
actually, the Banzai Fireball II came before the Fulltone
I'm still using the Fireball II, it has a bit more boost and a bit more compression as compered to a Fulldrive

no sir, I'm keeping my 3 Banzai pedals, Fireball, Cold Fusion and New Rising Sun together

still running a Fender Twin and the Banzais are a perfect match

was talking to Olaf Nobis last week at the Messe, he's not releasing anything new and he's not really producing a lot of these any longer

he's more focused on selling parts, casings, components ...

he also said that there will be no new Banzai pedal in the future (there was a rumour he was working on a delay pedal)

anyway, you sometimes see the Fireball on evilbay, but it's easier to find a used Fulldrive2 on the cheapz
