    Visiting Ohio from Michigan I stopped into Sam Ash and bought a used mint spark boost 4 knob for 60 bucks! Will test it Sunday. They had a ton of used nice pedals not many Marshalls at all but nice guitars.

    I go there occasionally. It use to be a really nice store back in the 90's. Now, the GC down the road is better. I still remember the best sounding Marshall I have ever heard was in that store. It was a JMP. Some guy brought it in to show his friend who worked there. All of us guitar players in the store just stood there and drooled over it :)

    I usually check out the GC when I'm there.

    Oh man, I just got that pedal a week or so ago, I think you’re really gonna like it! I love it! This boost pedal has soooo many options,...a clean boost,...a Fat switch, which is like a overdrive,... 4 knobs, (level, gain, bass, treble,), and a midrange boost too!

    The best thing about this pedal, to me, is it’s transparency, it doesn’t change or color the tone of your amp. This pedal is always on in my pedal board. This is absolutely my favorite pedal! I’m interested in hearing what you think about it.

    So, I took my SV to my guitar group this week. I got told to turn it down, it sounded nice but I could not get it to growl.

    Next week I will try the attenuator and also a Gibson LP.


    The amp sounded good but so different in a hall to my music room. I will experiment over the coming weeks.

    Need to get some complementary pedals.

    We had no drummer this week. Once he is back I may be able to crank it.

    Guys do any of you put a screen in front of your amp's speakers to deaden the sound.

    I built a foldable Plexigass panel from 2 sheets that I bought at Lowes or Home Depot.

    Youre gonna do that because your pals told you to turn down?

    I was gonna suggest rearranging your band setup, I used to run into the volume wars with my old band at practice and the solution was line all the amps up in a row a couple feet apart and point them in the direction of the drummer. Now nobody's amp is pointing at anybody else and the drummer can now hear everybody equally.

    Well, Maxon developed the chip that makes the OD-9 and the Ibanez tubescreamer what they are today. At least that’s what I read. I’ve had my Maxon OD-9 for almost 30 years! Here’s a bit of history of the Maxon/Ibanez tubescreamer.

    Mine sounds really good through the SV212 cabinet. But it sounds much better, I dare say it sounds GREAT through my 1960b straight-front cab. Tonight I was getting spot on Physical Graffiti and Presence tones. Tomorrow I’m trying for Trower. So many classic tones. Really enjoying this amp.

    EDIT: I first posted in the SC20H thread! Mine is the SV20H. However, I DO want an SC20H next!

    Exact same pedal, only difference being, the OD9 is true bypass (or at least initial versions were, I haven't taken apart my 2nd, more recent OD9 to make sure).
