You can't see it in the photo but there is a string of pretty blue LED's under the top panel.


cheap pedals for the win..
not so much the FAB, but the livingstone OD is actually pretty decent..

The Livingstone is surprisingly good. I bought it at Aldi for peanuts ($20 iirc) expecting to have to fit a new board into it and I was pleasantly surprised. Sounds very much like a Boss SD-1.
The FAB chorus is actually pretty good and I scored it for some stupid low price off ebay.

It's a Kanji 9 I'm not sure why mine came in red though, I always thought Kanji 9s came in black and white but it appears not to be true. I think mine may be a bit of an anomaly because it's a red Kanji 9 that came with the manual for the Kanji eternity

I worked in a music store, I hated the fabs, they sounded tacky to me.. I figured I'd try the livingstone OD, cos I mean, it's cheap, and it's actually pretty good, but the pins in the jack need to be bent in, mine crackle. I don't use the pedal any more, I got better (BBE Green Screamer)

The FAB chorus sounds pretty good for harp and that is that board's primary function. Like I said, my guitar pedalboard is a rack.

I like racks.

wait, wrong sort of rack.

my harp pedalboard consists of a mic. I don't bother with effects, ill save them for the guitar.
I do have a harmonica mic I use at home, but not gigs.. (it's an old telephone, it sounds great ahha)

It's a work in progress. I plan on adding a RV-5, Mirco Pog, and Goodrich Volume pedal with my next paycheck. Probably gonna take off the CE-5 too.

First you must try out Catalonbread's pedals. Try a few and see if you like the sound. Catalinbread pedals IMO both have a very distinctive sound. It's really hard to describe, but it's present in all their pedals. You either like it or don't care for it.

With that said, I find that on the overall the Silverkiss is generally a transparent OD with a prominent top end chime. The volume boost is fairly moderate, but it's got lots of gain on tap.

Compared to the Pure Drive, I found the gain characteristic toggle a little subtle. You'd be able to hear a difference between the 3 modes but it isn't in-your-face prominent.

The EQ has got quite a dynamic range and is somewhat interactive. It isn't as interactive as a Recto's tone stack, but for a pedal its controls are definitely. Ore interactive than the norm.

Now for what it sounds like. Like I mentioned it is transparent overdrive with a bright top end. I generally cut the treble on this OD and I generally like a slightly brighter tone myself. I would use it on a darker amp that has limited tone shaping capabilities. I find that the dynamic EQ range makes it hard to pair with amps that have lots of tonal control like the MkV (though I like it on the MkV channel 2 with my graphic EQ bypassed).

I've read that some forumites on TGP describe it as a Timmy with mid controls and a prominent top end, but I disagree as the Timmy is very much less transparent and has a nasally mid range which is absent from the Silverkiss.

Depends what I use it for. It's got a huge sweep and is pretty versatile, gets awesome low end and can get pretty sharp depending on the setting. I use it mainly for recording and jamming because there is an unpleasant pop whenever you turn the pedal on so it's not really suitable for a live setting.

If they ever manage to get rid of that pop I would never need another wah.

What sort of switch is it using? You may be able to fix the pop yourself with the addition of a single resistor.

Thanks heaps for that. It gives me a much better idea reading it from someone who owns one. I love Cbread's pedals, I have serious GAS for a DLS, Silver Kiss and the Teaser Stallion. Just need the money to pick some of them up
