    As a huge advocate of Tronographic's incredible Rusty Box, I'm wondering if anyone here has taken the time to sit down and compare the settings between the pedal & the Traynor TS-50B to see if they're at all comparable in actual use.

    I've scoured Instagram for photos of the amplifier that clearly show how the knobs are set and my plan is to see how that translates into running the Rusty as a preamp bypassing the pre of my rather rare Sunn SB200 combo amplifier.

    Just curious to see if anyone else has already done this, and if users of the actual amp can tell me if the results would be precisely the same as playing through the head itself or at all different.

    Aren't they the exact same circuit?

    I remember reading through the Rusty Box thread on the Electrical Audio forums (it's a HUGE thread) and there were a few posts where the creator of the pedal talked about having prototypes out in the wild with people that owned the amp. The purpose was to get the knobs on the RB acting exactly like the amp.
