Pam got me, for our anniversary, a guitar pedal I had been looking at. An MXR Classic Overdrive. I have to tell you...I love this thing! It's another Tube Screamer clone, but with even less gain. This is not an over the top distortion pedal by any means, but rather a pretty subtle tube driver.

I was impressed by its ability to push tubes, and also by the way it adds some warmth, and some significant "middle" to my Line 6 Spider's "clean" setting.

I'm using it "stacked" with a vintage Arion "Tubulator"...and..well...oh, my!
