Barber Burn Unit

Barber Burn UnitPublished on 06/25/01 at 15:00
Purchased used at Makin Music in Chicago.
The unit lists at around $190, I worked out a trade for a vintage effects pedal.
I was looking for a subtle distortion to replace an old tube screamer that would retain the tone of my guitar and amplifier, plus the reviews I have read suggest that it will come very close to replicating a Dumble amplifier.


The Burn Unit has four knobs - volume, tone, dynamics, and burn. The dynamics and burn controls are interactive, providing a wide range of tonal possibilities. It also has an internal trim pot to adjust the bass. The simple manual has suggested settings for tweed, blackface, Marshall plexi, Dumble, etc. I found the tone to be very smooth...…

It also has an internal trim pot to adjust the bass. The simple manual has suggested settings for tweed, blackface, Marshall plexi, Dumble, etc. I found the tone to be very smooth and compressed, rich in harmonics, a very unique tone.


The unit does not give me the transparent tone I was looking for - The difference between the clean sound of the amplifier and the sound with the effect on is very obvious, but in a good way.


The box is very solid, well built with an external power jack and extremely smooth on-off button. The boutique effects are expensive, but this one is worth the cost for me.


The Burn Unit provides a number distinct sounds that are very useful. It may not be for everyone but I like what it does. Mine came without it's manual, I contacted the builder Dave Barber by email and he replied immediately with an online instruction sheet - very prompt and friendly service.
