Members XXTwighlight Posted April 22, 2006 Members Share Posted April 22, 2006 IMO... I've been playing 25 years and I'm a bit of a gear freak.I've been through tons of overdrives from the boutique stores in NYC to mailorder such as Musictoyz, etc.I've bought and sold on Ebay left and right trying to find the best overdrive.I came to the realization that there is always a very fine line between pedals. None were *drastically* different from the others tonally, but how they were set up was always a personal factor for me.My all time fav, and the pedal I always revert back to and never sold was my Fulldrive. The thing that the Fulldrive lacked was a volume for the high gain second channel.Well to cut right to the chase...the new Seymour duncan "Twin Tube classic" is truly a killer pedal!I was totally shocked and impressed.It has a nice layout starting with the body shape.It runs on two USA made phillips-sylvania Mil spec tubes.It has vol/gain for BOTH channels...this is very important to me!I can set up a nice rythym and kick in channel two for a solo and have either high gain or even gain response to my rythym channel. Both channels are voiced similar too. It also has bass and treble which is shared by both channels.The fact that it is shared can be thought of as an issue, but it really is voiced nicely and doesnt really matter.Both bass and treble have a nice taper and work well.It can do a smooth Eric Johnson to a brighter cutting edge nicely.Channel one is more overdrive with less gain, but still more gain than a tubescreamer...channel two is higher gain into distortion territory, but with the gain backed off it can do light overdrive just as well. Channel two cranked has some hiss...but dont they all.Otherwise when backed off a bit the hiss lessens dramatically.All in all...this pedal is a keeper IMO.I'm impressed! $200+ at GC. Negative Issue #1 ....WALWART! -Robert Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
