    FB4A1BEF-4659-423D-B386-AC9DA3B44669.png Hey guys! I have the chance to buy a Gainster pedal for about $180 CAD (about $140 USD), but don’t know if it’s worth it? Good price? Good pedal? Thoughts?

    Will do! I heard about this pedal years ago but it fell of my radar and I forgot about it when I started searching for another overdrive

    That sounds like a pretty good price this is one of the original old-school Boutique overdrives, right?

    If I recall correctly this was supposed to kind of give you the gain of a Fender tweed ( Deluxe-ish?) cranked.

    I've never used it but I know that our amp Tech buddy has one
    Hope you like it if you get it let us know

    Mine is number 8, the 8th one that Michael made, yes that is an excellent price, it's at LEAST as good as any klon, I love it!!

    Those are great tweed pedals. I have the Barber version and a clone. Both are great for tweed tones. Enjoy.

    Well here it is guys! I’m so pumped. This pedal is pretty much mint!! As you can see from the pics it’s from 2005! :eek:

    I can’t get over how clean it is. With the exception of the pedalboard tape on the back, this thing is sweet!
