I've been searching around the net and on TB and can't find much on anyone AB'ing the vintage vs reissue clone theory. There's only this brief thread thats now quite dated plus a youtube video on guitar http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f36/vintage-clone-theorys-ebay-287214/ I've read a few comments that people think the reissue isn't as "wild" but it's hard to tell whether thats just word of mouth or experience from someone who has tried both. So how do they compare in terms of tone? Plus noise levels? Also, It's well known that these pedals are noisey. But has anyone had experinece trying to reduce the noise of these pedals either via: 1. Boosting gain pre pedal (to increase signal to noise ratio). Does this make much difference? 2. Using a noise gate 3. Any other method Need to decide which one to get: reissue or vintage?
