    I saw a youtube vid for an allegedly Marshall-sounding drive pedal... played thru a Marshall. I mean, really?

    I'm also looking at the Keeley Memphis Sun. There's a great demo featuring Tony Sims, he really brought out the best in the pedal.

    They're freakishly light and loud.

    I’ve been tortured by the keeley memphis sun since it came out. It’s such a great idea for a pedal.
    I tried one with a 5420 thru a peavey classic 30 at my local guitar shop, but I couldn’t get a sound that said “buy me now”.
    Someday maybe....

    Man you know how pedals are, they take some time. I can definitely make my Sun sound shitty if i try but there are some serious tones in it.

    LOL, After a (to date) stellar experience w/ the 30ms Double Tracker and the general acclaim around here, I actually got a used one of those Memphis Suns sent on the way to me from Chicago this AM :oops::D

    Of course. And i’ll admit, when I’m playing in a guitar shop I can clam up a bit. Especially on a day when I’m the only jerk making noise in there, like the day i tested that pedal!
    It’s definitley got sounds I can use, but I’m really happy with my beat up maxon ad9. I found the absolute sweet spot for perfect slap back. Makes great double tracking sound. Seriously thinkin’ about glueing the knobs in position!

    Yes, I have considered it. It is certainly loud enough to gig with. While the Quilter sounds great and is super light, I have some wonderful boutique and vintage amps that the Quilter simply can't run with. That's not a criticism of the Quilter, more like a reflection of the amazing sound coming from some really expensive gear.

    There are (and have been) some wonderful solid state amps. The Quilter 101 is almost magical - you get so much for so little. I am a fan and while it isn't one of my main stage amps, I respect its capabilities and terrific sound.

    I hear you! As much as I like my Quilter, it doesn't compete with my '56 Gibson GA40.

    Congrats on choosing a nice amp!
