    I have a bonamassa jdf3. Sounds great with les paul but lacking a little with my strats. Kind of dark and wooly. Even a little low gain. Sure I can boost it with a tube screamer or the like.
    the Hendrix jhf1 sounds like it would be a better match for Strat work, but some of the YouTube vids make it sound pretty much the same as the jbf3.
    Is the Hendrix jhf1 a little more suited to lower impedance, single coil type stuff? More gain?
    Anyone have experience with both that can describe tonal difference.

    The jhf1 has fantastic reviews, just don’t want to drop 150ish on something identical to what I already have.
    Thanks in advance
