Fantastic low gain pedal and boost

Barber LTDPublished on 03/31/11 at 03:43
The layout is straightforward but there is something under the hood as well. Volume and gain don't need an explanation, the tone control however is not like your everyday tone. From 12:00 and up, it adds highs and subtracts lows, below 12:00 it's the other way around. On the inside, there are 2 controls to set bass and presence. With this simple layout, it's possible to fine-tune the LTD to perfection.

UTILIZATION

The LTD does not have a lot of gain, running the gain wide open and using humbuckers you can get a nice classic rock sound. However, the LTD excels at low gain tones and as a boost. Setting up is easy although some people might find the internal controls annoying. I...…

UTILIZATION

The LTD does not have a lot of gain, running the gain wide open and using humbuckers you can get a nice classic rock sound. However, the LTD excels at low gain tones and as a boost. Setting up is easy although some people might find the internal controls annoying. I was using it with different amps but never felt the need to change the internal settings after I had them tweaked when I just had the pedal.

SOUND QUALITY

I used the LTD for a long time and ran it with several different amps. It was the 1st pedal that I was able to dial in so it got me a great low gain/bluesy od with a clean channel and a nice boost on a crunch channel. It also worked equally great to boost other pedals.

At this point, I HAVE to use the T-word: transparent. That's what the LTD is. You can set it up to sound exactly like your amp. With the tone controls, I was able to setup the LTD and use it as a boost and have the same tone and feel, just more of everything. I know "transparent" is used to much but the LTD really can be as transparent as you like.

OVERALL OPINION

The LTD has been around for some time and is still regarded as one of the best low gain pedals available. I owned it for a long time and sold it to try out a bunch of other pedals but I will be buying one again later this year. It works great with pretty much any guitar and amp.

Analog overdrive.
3 settings via external potentiometers
- Volume
- Tone
- Drive
2 internal trim pots
- Bass
- Presence

IN 1 jack, 1 OUT jack

UTILIZATION

It's very simple, in all cases, branch and it sounds. Then you can adjust the internal settings, the default position 12 being a very good setting.

SOUND QUALITY

Overdrive excellent quality.That is quality overdrive sold at prices well above. For me it is the Fulltone, Mojo, and other widely Xotic.
It ranges from mild to drive a drive but more sustained way. The sound is very transparent, all the nuances of the instrument is preserved and it was a really beautiful sound lamps. There is no discoloration as a TS...…

It ranges from mild to drive a drive but more sustained way. The sound is very transparent, all the nuances of the instrument is preserved and it was a really beautiful sound lamps. There is no discoloration as a TS or a BB preamp. She responds very well to the potentiometer of the instrument. She cascade great without adding compression or crushing of his (big flaw in Xotic example). The definition is still there. This is in line to my sense of another top that is the OD of Fairfield Circuitry Barbershop.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year in my pedalboard in place of my OCD V4 (which I've still kept). Aramat I also have a Green Machine (super OD TS) I positioned after LTD. I use the LTD on the crunch and solo little saturated and snaps the Green Machine when I want more drive. The LTD also works very hard on the overdrive channel of my amp (Rivera Chubster 40), she expands the sound and even adds to the definition.
Another very interesting use too have an old vintage fuzz Top Gear England I cascade in LTD resolved in this case with very little gain, a treat.
In short a great pedal with an unbeatable value for money
