Show Us Your Gear: Favorite OD/Distortion
Xotic BB Plus & Creation Audio Lab Holy Fire
Dallas Hodgson was another gearhead who couldn't just pick one. He says of his two favorites, "I’m often using either the A channel of the BB+ (for a touch of grit) or the Overdrive channel of the Holy Fire (for body & fullness) to precondition the guitar signal in front of my ENGL e-530 rack preamp. Even minus the ENGL, the BB+ is good enough to stand alone as a Marshall-in-a-box, while the Holy Fire is strictly for modest overdrive purposes – I don’t touch its Distortion knob at all."
