Looking for a lower gain overdrive to replace my Route 66. The compressor on it is alright, but I'm tired of the overdrive. My Fulldrive 2 MOSFET does tubescreamer sounds better than the Route 66 when I want those sort of tones, plus it has the option for mosfet clipping and you can take the midhump out when desired. Since I prefer a more crunchy and singing tone dialed in on the Fulldrive 2, I tried using the Route 66 with the drive all the way off for light breakup tones. It's a no go. There is the annoying artifact in the tone that makes it overly thick and ruins the shimmer on the notes and the midhump makes it honky. I'm looking for a low gain overdrive with a more flat voicing that can sound thick enough but still have a nice shimmer on the notes.

I'm narrowing it down to a few

Cmatmods Butah
Barber LTD SR
Timmy (long wait, but perhaps worth it...?)
Visual Sound Open Road (sounds nice with drive rolled off a lot)
JHS Morning Glory

Problem is that I can only hear demos of them, so it's hard to really narrow it down. The JHS is the absolute top of my budget and I don't care if it's new or used. My gear is in my sig.

DeArmond M series
Vox Night Train 15 head w/Weber loaded 1x12
Dunlop DVP3 Volume (X)
Klone circuit/Russian Big Muff 2in 1

TC Electronic Nova Delay
TC Electronic Nova Repeater
Line 6 M5

I keep hearing talk of it being relatively harsh in comparison to the real thing though.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

A good clean boost works wonders in conjunction as a mid heavy overdrive... as does a treble booster. Kicking in a compressor for leads is also very effective. You have more options than just another drive pedal.

That's a lot of booze. Frankly, I'm impressed. You're of a stronger timber than the average man, jimbob! Hail you.

Cheaper components could account for that. If it really is a clone of the Timmy circuit it wouldn't be too hard to upgrade the components to better stuff - unless they are using SMT in it. Sounds like it would be worth a look.
