"I'm still putting the 4-Speed through its paces. I may swap it out with a Sparkle Drive and put this on my flight board. Tim, who builds them, tells me it's really built for fly dates, as it has four modes, each sort of designed for a different type of amp. Sounds like a good plan." - Osenga about Sparkle Drive pedal.more
Today I use a simple pedalboard that Dave Wilkerson from Techstar built for me. It is loaded with an Ernie Ball volume pedal, a Cry Baby 5350 wah, Boss DD-3 Digital Delay, MXR DynaComp, Boss GE-7 Equalizer, Boss Chromatic Tuner, Voodoo Lab Tremolo and **Sparkle Drive**, and last but not least, the good, old T.C. Electronic Stereo Chorus.more
I borrowed one from a friend, and he was about ready to break into my place to get it back. I know why; its as if the pedal splits your output, making channel A overdriven and channel B clean and compressed. Its like you're jamming with yourself; one clean and one distorted. And you can play with the blend, as well, making the attack more distorted than the decay, or vice-versa. Amazing pedal.
