What are some distortion pedals that are transparent in terms of EQ? There are plenty of transparent overdrive pedals, and transparent overdrive threads. Many people regard the Barbershop, to take one of many examples, as "your tone plus breakup." That's what I'm looking for, but a heavier, more aggressive, hard-clipping distortion sound. Think OCDs and Rats in terms of breakup character. But, no baked in EQ curves: OCDs and Rats are not transparent in this sense, they are typically shaping midrange content, and/or cutting low end. Darkglass - not transparent: a blend doesn't make it so (or at least, that's not what I'm looking for). This is tricky, I know, because adding harmonics is changing frequency response. But what I'm looking for here are pedals that sound like "your tone" but highly distorted in a hard-clipping kind of way... e.g. different than just cranking (or stacking) fill-in-the-blank transparent OD(s).
