  4. I generally don't use them together other than when I'm just messing around at home--rather, I keep them on there as two different flavors of overdrive. The Barbershop adds a low-gain dark, warm grittiness to my tone while the mini I use for more of a medium gain slightly lo-fi more treble-heavy edge. I love the mini with a pick through my SVT.

    Together, the barbershop takes some of the trebly bite out of the mini and adds a little of the lower gain grit. The tone is pretty thick and gain-y with both on, but that's only using my practice amp. I'll have to try the two stacked with the big rig next week and report back.

    Speaking of no funds, I really want to get a Dr. Scientist Bitquest, Frazle Dazle, and spectrum analyzer. That thing looks sweet. I really want to put that on my board.

    Yeah that thing looks sick. I can't get that spectrum analyzer out of my mind. That would be so cool on the front of my board. "Hey look at me:hyper:". Haha

    Oh man, I'm jealous. If the weather is anything like we are having in VA, it is closer to a spring night than summer. Once the rain went out at 1 it's been like 73 and beautiful.

    I'm not sure if I have anything you don't to try, but you're still welcome.

    Dude. I have to go to Rockport Texas for 2 weeks from Aug 9 to 24. Working inside a fabric domed shrimp hatchery. Going to be 100 degrees and 100% humidity. I might die. For real. Not looking forward to it

    Not to mention smelling 100% like dead shrimp. I bet that can't be fun.

    after building a modded Fuzz-rite, an FY-2, a Dizzy Tone and the Sam Ash Fuzz-stainer (which i love),I've really been getting into simple, low parts count fuzzes lately. I just finished a Lovepedal Karl Fuzz (Escobedo Tripple fuzz variant) and I really dig it too. for this one, I mounted it in a 1590G which is quite a bit smaller than a 1590B.

    Wow John. That looks great!!!!! It's a far cry from the component list of the Openhaus but I bet it sounds great
