I currently own a Crayon and really enjoy it, but I am also looking for something with a bit more bite to it for some modern rock and some punk. I have watched a few videos on the OD Glove and it has definitely sparked my interest.
I’m just wondering if having both would be redundant, or if they’ll sound different enough to make it worth it.
Anyone here own both, or at least tried both in person who could provide some insight? I really want to stick with EHX as my entire pedal line up is currently EHX
I don’t have both…yet. I have the OD Glove. I also have the Cock Fight, the Soul Food, the Hot Tubes, the Nano Big Muff, the Germanium4 Big Muff Pi, and the Metal Muff. The Crayon is next on my list.
So, I can’t help you directly, but I can give you some info. The OD Glove is EHX’ take on the Fulltone OCD. Both are MOSFET. Both have a tone shift. EHX has switchable internal voltage - 9/18. The OD Glove switches depending on the power supply.
The Crayon is EHX’ take on the Xotic BB Preamp…sort of. The EHX uses a similar circuit, but slightly different components. BB stands for Marshall Blues Breaker. The Crayon is capable of a treble boost that can cut through, but it’s claim to fame is actually a “full”, “warm” tone that can fatten up single coils and stack with other ODs to give you control over the tone.
So, having both will definitely NOT be redundant. They are different circuits and they can have a very different sound. Additionally, both are very good stacking pedals so they should work well together, but you’ll want to experiment a lot with placement and settings.
