    has too much gas
    anything out there?

    had a cream pie (and want one again)
    but im using a fatboost 2 at the moment and i'm clipping it (i think) way to early. other than the fact that i have been using high output passive G&Ls. but what options do i have for an OD with a good 'head room'

    Fulltone BassDrive has tons of headroom, and sounds good enough to me that I got rid of my prized EBS Valve Drive in favor of it. (size factor)

  7. DHA VT-1. The fact that you can control both the input and output gain is huge for controlling the character of the grit it gives you, and for giving you all the headroom you want. I've run line level signals through it with no clipping whatsoever.
  8. I'm a Barber LTD SR fanboy. My recommendation is consistent with this bias.
