"Our products are primarily unique designs, no direct copies of older circuits. Clarity, note definition, and a wide range of tones, textures, flexibility, and functions are hallmarks of Barber pedals. We're committed to musician friendly pricing and do not engage in extreme boutique pricing." ~ David Barber
We've been huge fans of David Barber's pedals for years and are thrilled to welcome Barber Electronics to The Music Emporium's growing roster of pedal builders. As a testament to how good these pedals are, check out David's client list: Eric Johnson, Nils Lofgren, David Grissom, Richard Thompson, Christopher Cross, Rick Derringer, Lionel Loueke, Johnny Hiland, and Jerry Cantrell. Whew, that's a hell of a list!
Packing the most desirable sounds from Barber's Direct Drive, Direct Drive Low Gain, and Super Sport pedals, the new Direct Drive Compact brings a colossal catalog of vintage British tones to your pedalboard. Like the sound of early UK combos with KT66 tubes? It's in there. Live for the sound of a carefully modified master volume gem from the early 80s? It's in there too.
Couple this with "real, honest" solder lugs for jacks, a true-bypass footswitch, toggles and pots, and you've got a killer, reliable pedal that'll last you for years. This is one of the biggest reasons we love David's pedals - killer tones, pedalboard friendly sizes, and extremely well thought-out and executed builds. What's not to love?
