Any sonic differences in the new version?
GAS instantly triggered. What a beauty!
Yea for the Pinto wagon!
I had friend in the late 80's who had an older brother with an orange Pinto. He was a security guard and the uniform was incongruous with the car but it had a sticker on the rear bumper that said ...
"This car explodes upon impact".
same exact circuit except that there are no flying leads in this version like the handwired one other than the stomp switch to the main board. On the scope we see no change between the two versions.
As long as the blend knob is dialed to the left, you have the normal channel, as it starts moving up towards 9 oclock, the mic channel and its variable impedance changes up the story.
What is the blend knob? Not the same as grits?
Tavo mentions the Grits knob in a new thread.
I intend to use the pedal for the classic 40s styles that it was designed for but does anybody have experience using the Jr Barnyard in relatively modern music genres? I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.
With my El Pescadoro which has the same preamp… to my ear it’s definitely magic in the Jazz, Blues, and even early Rock n’ Roll realm. The only newer stuff I play is more stoner rock. I deploy fuzz in that area. I’m sure someone else will chime in on their experience.
IYAM, this revised one was just begging to be named the "Jr. Barnyard, Jr."
For anyone with one on order or who’s on the fence. Looks stellar! I love both the knob graphic layout and red pedal light that harkens to the amp. It’s all in the details.
And of course this side by side shot. Which is more pedalboard friendly than this photo let’s on. It’s really going from a wide horizontal width to a slim vertical width pedal, if you catch my drift. Can’t wait to get mine.
Awesome awesome awesome. I love it even more than V1 !! I don't need the foot switchable boost, as to me this pedal is an AMP- I set it for the old-school tone and play. I use the blend knob for a dirt/EQ adjustment control....
Turns my Gretsch(or tele)>PRRI into an ES-125>ES-150!
Stellar work, Tavo!!
Dang, now I know what to ask for for my birthday!
Looks great but I already have a Jr B and an El Pesc.
I also have a Dyno Brain, a Mystery Brain, a Bass Brain, and a Detroit Casket.
Not getting rid of any of em. They each have their uses.
Looking forward to my purple Fuzz Ray.
Yours came in? I didn’t realize he shipped some out already.
I knew it was soon, this just showed up... I was like, "I didn't order anything(recently LOL)"... then I saw the return address. Pow!
I received my V2 a few days ago and have been playing around with the blend knob. The blend set to the normal channel (7:00) gives me the best Charlie Christian sounds but setting the blend to about 1:00 gets me some pretty great classic country vibes. Western Swing sounded the best with the blend around 10:00 to my subjective ears. Amazingly useful all-around.
Mine just arrived today. I love the this preamp. Nothing else really like it out there right now.
Toggles… I tend to switch mine depending on both the guitar in hand and sound I’m after. They’re really useful to me. Do you have a preference for Wooly/L7 and Bass/Guitar?
I only own single coil guitars at the moment and find that my Tele and 6120 both sound great with the toggles in the L7 and Guitar position. The wooly also sounded great but had a completely different vibe that reminded me a bit of of Wes Montgomery. I have yet to explore the bass toggle but will spend some time with each setting.
I agree that there is nothing really like it on the market. It works great for what it is marketed to accomplish, but it works for shaping the tone of other classic genres as well.
