    I'm thinking about selling my Sparkle Drive and buying a new OD to replace it, mainly because I find that the pedal isn't touch responsive and because sometimes I need a more high-gain sound.
    I was surfing the web, checking out the Blackout Musket fuzz (yeah, I'm also gasing for a Muff clone...I'm starting to think that I'm getting addicted to buying stompboxes :help:) and I found this http://blackouteffectors.com/site/?page_id=1543. It looks great and strangely similar to this http://www.tonefactor.com/proddetail.php?prod=SFT.
    Do you think it's a clone of some sort? Are there any other stompboxes that fit my needs?

    Caramba. There are many threads about the SFT, and one thread about the Mantra that's currently on the front page here in the fx forum.

    When you say "high gain", do you mean more of a smooth distortion, more of a rattly growl, more of an SVT emulator, or what?

    Well...I'm looking for an OD that can cope some tones similar to these:
    (jmj told me that he used a VT bass, but I bought one when they just came out and it really wasn't what I was looking for...maybe I should give it another chance?)
