I first purchased the Up Yours Real Tube metal pedal and found it to be amazing. So naturally I also ordered the Shifty’s 8 Ball Real Tube Blues pedal. They also sent me a pack of bootleggers strings that come with two high E strings! These petals are amazing. The construction is robust and second to none in quality. I can get anything from Rock and Roll to metal and everything in between. The blues pedal reminds me of the early days of blues. Mode 1 is cleanish and mode 2 is dirty. There is so much versatility with these pedals I’m still dialing then in but they’re plug-and-play and simple to work. Bootleggers is a great company and I’m interested in many more of their products.
