Crazy Tube Circuits 'Crossfire'...Add Some SRV To Any Amp!

Here's a brand new pedal for you - the Crossfire from Crazy Tube Circuits over in Greece. This is Christos' take on one of the most revered pedal/amp combinations in history - loved by the likes of John Mayer and Stevie Ray Vaughn, amongst others.

On the left hand side, we have a Blackface Fender amp-in-a-box circuit giving any amp (yep, even my middley JTM45!) a healthy dose of Fender scoop & sparkle. There's a 3-band EQ, bright switch and a headroom switch...taking you from Twin-territory down to a Super; or SS-rectified down to tube. Cool, eh?

Then, on the right, there's an 808 Tubescreamer circuit - one of my favourite I've played, I should add - and that too has some toggle switches for some of the most popular mods done to that circuit during its lifetime...a high gain switch, and also one to take you from standard symmetrical clipping to more tube-like asymmetrical clipping (reminiscent of the old Boss OD-1).

But of course, the magic happens when you stack them together...the mid push of the TS fills out the mid scoop of the Fender amp circuit, and lovely things happen. PLUS, in the middle of the two sides, there's an effects loop...so you can boost into an effect with the TS, or have that effect run into the Fender modelling...or both!

What do you think? Tasty tasty tones? Or not for you? Comment below!
