Longtallronnie - How do you rate the Crowther hot cake ?
It's probably my favourite pedal. Sounds great as a lead boost, fattens up your tone nicely. Not as much gain as an OCD but way more than a Liquid Sunshine if that helps. I've used it for light OD, clean boost and for big creamy solos. It does the 3rd one best imo.
Bear in mind though that mine is the Bluesberry version, no idea how it differs to the standard one but I believe the newer ones have dip switches so you can set it as either.
Finished wiring this up the other day, and it's only a couple of cable ties away from perfection. Once I've moved some stuff on there'll be a Rothwell Switchblade joining the party, and will probably go in place of the looper for convenience, or the chorus. I didn't bother putting anything in loops, as I don't take my own amp to rehearse with, so it's easier if everything just goes in front (and still sounds great).
I wasn't convinced the pedaltrain 2 would be big enough, so I got another with a view to making two different boards, but I'm thinking I may just stick with this one now.
