"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!
The BUSS brings back the classic sounds of the Barber Burn Unit and Super Sport pedals (hence the BUSS name). The Burn Unit's sounds are big and fat, and were tuned to match a $50K Dumble ODS amp that was sitting in Barber's shop for nearly a year while David listened and tuned the Burn Unit to perfection.
The first toggle switches between the Burn Unit and the Super Sport, while the second toggle selects different levels of harmonics and dynamics which can be applied to both the BU and SS sounds.
The BUSS uses exceptional components from the past and present, included Elna silk particulate caps and unobtanium germanium overdriven elements. Tremendous sound, build quality, and a stellar value!
