I love the anticipation of getting new gear delivered; when I check the shipper’s site and the delivery status says, “Out for Delivery.” Puts a smile on my face every single time. 🙂
Today I will be receiving a much-anticipated pedal: The EHX Soul Food. After seeing videos and hearing sound clips of the pedal, this is a pedal that I knew I had to try; even if I ultimately didn’t like it. But at the price I paid ($66 +shipping), I wouldn’t be cryin’ a river if it didn’t work out. But something tells me that it will, especially as mostly a booster, which is something I’ve been wanting to add to my chain to stack with my Timmy.
Yes, I have a booster pedal: The incredible Creation Audio Labs Mk.4.23. But I use that AFTER my pre-amp to boost my power tubes. It doesn’t provide a big boost of volume, but it certainly gets them saturated. It’s a VERY cool effect that I learned from Mean Gene Baker.
In any case, I’ve been searching for a soft- to medium-overdrive with lots of volume, and after listening to the Soul Food clips and videos, I’m sincerely hoping it’ll do the job. Only time will tell. 🙂
But for now, I’m waiting with bated breath!
