Barber Super Sport Pedal
Barber had many requests over the years to "Bring back the Direct Drive SS", players really loved the thick bold and sweet sound of the original Custom shop version of our Direct Drive. Ronni and David have painstakingly revived and revved up the B-Custom version of the Direct Drive with 5 highly adjustable internal trim pots so that players can dial in exacting amounts of; note shape, harmonics, bass, midrange, and presence. The internal trim adjustments are provided by the legendary CTS control company, known for their durability and smooth operation. Ronni and Bronson Wagner conceived and executed the new muscle car inspired custom paint theme, using multiple rich layers of ultra durable powder coating, with baked on enamel silk screened graphics, so there is no worries of the so called "boutique" back yard finish that looks good for a week and then flakes off after some light gigging.
The super Sport lives up to its sonic heritage and adds adjustable midrange so you can dial the sound from "flat eq" to "thick mids", the new note shape control, allows you to adjust how much bass goes through the overdrive circuit, now you can get a tight focused sound, or a big round vintage "cough" when you lay into the next power chord or wildly shaking 12th fret g string stab! The Super Sport is everything players have been asking Barber for in a medium high gain, british flavored B-Custom overdrive pedal...Drive yours home today!
