This OD is patterned off a Fender Black Face Super Reverb with the volume set to 6. Hence the name.
The gold stripe on this one is indicative of a limited edition of 100 pedals with the SRV mod.
I heard the standard green with black stripes one and
you can easily hear a definite difference.
LET ME DIGRESS FOR A BIT ...
I just got a custom handmade 64-65 Strat neck PU
Q is Tiho a guy in Croatia that winds and tweaks them until they nail the Hendrix sound. The 64-65 PU's were hand wound by Fender
and they varied. Some were a bit hot others not.
He has got the winding's down to match the sound dead on.
I am semi retiring my Fender Custom Strat from playing live as a lot of guys in my area have had them stolen. But the sound was critical on a few tunes.
So I am having the Hendrix PU built into the neck position of my ...Silvertone guitar.
(I even found a nice German made nickel plated open faced cover for the PU to keep the guitars look from being spoiled)
I still need a Strat sound for a couple of tunes.
So the PU and the pedal are ear candy to make up for not having my real Strat.
Hence this is a gotta have.
AND NOW BACK TO OUR PEDAL
Take a Strat and click on the neck PU and you
instantly have Stevie Ray Vaughan's clean sound.
I think most who buy this pedal if they wanted more dirt they would
stack this with another OD or use this pedal as a booster to push their amp into a crunch.
I felt the Wampler Tumnus added some nice mellow mids in the video. I have a Tone city Bad Horse Klon wanna be ...so I will give that a shot as a stand in as they really are the same kind of thing. It will all be going thru my Plexi which I have set to clean for all my pedals. I became a big SRV fan from when the Bowie Let's Dance record came out.
Impressive!!! I would bet an entry level Squier Strat with this pedal would sound great.
In a blindfold test someone would be saying "Whoa ...what kind of Strat have you got!!!"
Keep in mind if you love the sound that they are only making 100 of them for the whole world. They can sell half of them in Briton the second the word gets around. Then you have the whole of Europe and Australia too.
Yes I did! Mine is already ordered and I expect 10 days tops before I get it.
