B-Custom Super Sport

Postby J.LaGrassa » Thu Apr 16, 2009 8:42 pm

I posted this a while ago in other forums so I thought I would post it here and get a thread started!
*******************************************************************************************************
Man this pedals sounds as good as it looks, the very first chord I hit I was Impressed! This feels very different from the Direct Drive I was using it sounds like it has more gain bigger bass ...just bigger everything but I'msure thats due to all the controls under the hood but what ever it is its great and such a classy looking pedal .....great job Dave and Ronni!

Check this one out if you can or better yet buy one I highly recommend this one!

I agree J. I love mine too ;)

Where do you have the Harmonics trim set on yours? I find myself putting mine almost all the way down... at about nine o' clock, I think.

It seems to clean up better with the Harmonics lower, the distortion sounds less compressed to me with it turned down as well. It makes me think I want a DDLG.

I have it set to around 1:00 I like the thick bite that at I get with it I find it still cleans up amazingly well and this is with my Les Paul!

I like it around 1:00 as well.. That's usually where I set them before they go out the door.
G&L Legacy Special, PRS SE soapbar II, beefed up PV Classic50 4X10, Barber pedals, Budda Wah , Line6 green/blue F/X.
Then a bunch of studio stuff.

Had some great tones last night at a gig the Super Sport was smokin' I also just got a new cab for my Blues Junior I think it mad a big difference as far as tone goes it s a Solid pine cab with Dovetail joints the speaker I used is a Celestion G12H30 with al JJ tubes, I have a couple of the popular Billm mods installed this is a sweet sounding amp and the Barber pedals just interact with the amp so nicely!

Here is a shot of the new cab!

Picture removed, sold the cab and amp!

I bought it from Carls Custom Guitars for $179 shipped I thought the price was great compared to a lot of other cabs I looked at and it's well made!

Wow, that is a nice looking cab J.!

Price seems better than most too. Did it come with the grill or did you do that yourself?

Are you gonna start making those interesting looking cabs again David? I think they were called Energy cabs, could be wrong.

Cabs and amps will come back when the economy says "uncle". :)

I love that stuff, but we are wild back ordered on pedals at the moment, so we build pedals and smile... :D .....cept for Ronni. :x

Oxblood Grill cloth comes with the cab!

Would love to see Dave come out with a 1x12 combo made specifically to handle pedals!
