Ok so i replaced the stock Phred buffer with this. What a difference, i cant make this shit up. It really sounds that much better. Highly recommend this for any Phred users. I didnt even realize what i was missing until i plugged it in and strummed some Shakedown and wow.... Best upgrade for these Phred guitars for sure and at a great price and i get to work with SMS again and they have been so helpful and i love their SMS CTP (that will remain my main amp til i leave this earth).
I meant to do a before and after video but oops. Something that i notice with the SMS over the Phred, is i swear split tones sound different. Theres more of less cut happening on certain freq. I know ill have someone tell me it cant be doing that, but ive A'd, B'd, C'd and E'd this SMS to compare to the Phred units and its like night and day. The guitar breathes easier. More oomph which is strange, i didnt think this would make this big of a difference. I knew it may help with this or that, but this is a HUGE upgrade in tone.
If you own a Phred and upgrade, just remember Yellow is the Blue and white is the yellow. Youll know what i mean when ya look at the Phred and this SMS. So just a heads up so ya dont frustrate yourself. But i need 4 more of these now.
Thanks SMS so so much.
