Barber Direct Drive

I like the Direct Drive. It hasn't made it on my main board yet but I can't bring myself to part with it. It doesn't work as well with my amp du jour but I figure another amp will eventually come along that it will kill with. It actually sounds surprisingly good through my backup amp, a Crate Power Block. Nice and tight, no mushiness. Use a compressor with it and it gets Larry Carltonish.

I've got one on my board, but it's just hanging by a thread. I expected it to be a little smoother when I bought it. But it's a tad gritty for my taste, I guess it's that Marshall kind of thing. It's very transparent, definitely doesn't fog up my signal like a TS-9. But my M.I. Audio Blue Boy is more what I'm into. I've been using the Direct Drive with the gain set really low, it does a really nice slight break-up.
