Hello TBers. Wondering if any of you have direct experience with both the Hudson Electronics Broadcast dual footswitch version and the JHS Colour Box V2? Although these boxes seem to be marketed as preamp pedals, I am actually interested in potentially using one as a mild(ish) drive pedal. I am a fan of that vintage, saturated bass tone and I generally play passive Fender basses through either an Ampeg SVT-VR or an Ampeg V-4B. I am interested in learning about the characteristics of each pedal and how they compare to one another. I am also interested in learning about the perceived pros and cons of each pedal, their tonal characteristics, how they might, if at all, color the tone as well as the sound quality of the OD. What draws me to the Broadcast is the low gain/high gain option, the germanium transistor and its simplicity. What concerns me about it is whether or not it is a noisy pedal as well as its lack of EQ capability (if that is even at all a valid concern). With respect to the Colour Box, I like that it has a ton of control and EQ capability, the step control for the gain stage and the XLR out. Conversely, a potential concern that I have is given that it might be difficult to get it dialed in due to all of the control options. I'm also wondering if when being overdriven that the tone might not be as desirable compared to the Broadcast. I do recognize that these are very subjective considerations but I would very much welcome and appreciate the experience and opinions of those of you have played with these boxes, particularly those who have direct experience with both. Both pedals aren't what I would consider to be inexpensive so I am merely attempting to consider all possibilities to assist me in making an informed choice. Thanks in advance for your help.
