Bought a Sunset a few weeks ago. I say yes.
Mostly I avoid dual drives, because I find having two or three separate drive/boost pedals is more flexible. I can place them in whichever order suits me best for any given application.Anybody wanna talk dual overdrive pedals?
I have been drawn to them for years, for some reason. I currently have an analogman king of tone, a kingsley juggler v2, a t rex mudhoney ii, and a mosky amp turbo (which I think is a clone of the lovepedal amp 11, one side of which I think is supposed to be a clone of a Timmy). I had an amp 11 and loved it, but I traded it away at some point. The mosky sounds like an amp 11, to me anyway.
I usually love the Xotic stuff, but I tried the AC+ and I didn’t love it. Made everything sound too smooth and fusion-y to my ear. Also tried a jhs double barrel but didn’t bond with it either. I’m currently curious about the duellist, the protein, the broadcast, and several of the wampler dual overdrive offerings. I have to admit that I do question whether dual overdrives are even the way to go, despite the appeal they hold for me.
Anybody have thoughts on this subject? Why do you use one, or why don’t you? Which ones do you like or dislike? Is it better to just find two single overdrives you like and stack them?
To be clear, these days I like using a greer lightspeed along with my king of tone. So I’m stacking and using a dual od. But I’m curious about other people’s approaches, philosophies, and so forth.
