Members Arjae Posted June 2, 2006 Members Share Posted June 2, 2006 5/31/06 I'm either going to call it Super-Lead or GT350...but regardless, I've finished the prototype for a new Hi-Gain Distortion with 3 Band EQ that's really good sounding! The EQ, particularly the Midrange control, is very flexible. Sonny Landreth is beta-testing a version, more news when available. It cleans up extremely well with the volume control, has a ton of gain/sustain, and has a great picking feel, the most Tube-like I've played, including the many pedals with tubes I've tried. Because people will ask, here's an overview comparison: Fulldrive2= a Fendery type smoother, less dynamic sound that tames a harsh amp, sounds good with most anything. OCD= more of a Vox type OD/Distortion, with lots of lows, highs, and not alot of Midrange. Great with many amps, but not a good match with folks who set their amps trebly. Super-Lead= excels at everything from Overdrive to very Hi-Gain lead tones...WITH the addition of a good Bass control, a good Treble control, and a stellar Midrange control that allows this pedal to be voiced anywhere in the mix...MANY great lead voicings are easily dialed in! Smooth flat EQ'd sustain to (dare I say) D***** like sounds, to fixed-wah penetrating Midrange. Or (for the first time from me) some good scooped METAL sounds by upping the Highs and Lows and ducking the Mids. I'm going to keep production small and personal on this one, it's nice to have 17 employees and pay the bills, but I miss the old days and with this project I get to break out the hand-drill, the P-Touch labelmaker (maybe I'll paint it nice?) build and and play each one.No release date is set nor will it be announced, we're moving to a nice new building I just bought, so you'll start seeing these late summer I hope. ************************************************* Sounds interesting but also sounds a lot like all the claims he has made before with the Distortion Pro. If production is going to be small and unannounced, I can just imagine what the price will be and what they will go for on the second hand market.
