The new Gain Changer SR model improves warmth, clarity and note separation.

Measuring only 2.3” wide, the NEW Barber Gain-Changer SR harnesses a vast spectrum of EQ and gain. Flick the toggle one way and you have sweet very low-gain overdrive, flick it the other way and you get wildly charged harmonic content of our much praised unLimited distortion. Pop over to the other toggle-switch and you can volley between the flat sweet-EQ of the LTD sr , the vintage snarling-fat-EQ of our classic LTD X2or a new voice that combines flat EQ with a little added fatness. Combine all these different options together and you have a super-versatile harmonic beast. Our goal was to shrink the size of our pedals and retain all the ultra-high quality electronics and build quality that we are world famous for. In the end, it’s almost impossible to miss the target if you are shopping for a new overdrive for your rig, “it’s like shooting fish in a barrel Jethro.”

The Gain-Changer SR has real honest solder lugs for jacks, True-bypass footswitch, toggles and pots. There are no worries about PCB mounted thru-panel parts that can’t be serviced on the road, or that lead to high cost repairs. Nothing but the best tried and true hand-built methods adorn the interior of the Barber Electronics Gain-Changer SR. The Gain-Changer SR has a generous 2 1/2” of clearance between the front edge of the footswitch and the back edge of the knobs, no more worries about changing your settings with each click of your footswitch. Buy a hand-built Barber Gain-Changer SR, and enter a world of immense overdrive possibilities.

  1. What a great pedal! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2015

    I just got the gain changer to replace an LTD SR, and man do I love it. It's way more versatile than the SR, and I think it sounds better on the SR settings, just more alive. The higher gain setting is great, a kick butt sound that retains the sound of my Strat, while keeping some reasonable definition. I'm amazed I haven't seen or heard more about this pedal. I also like the smaller size as I am downsizing my board and this fits better than the SR. If you are considering this as a low gain pedal - don't hesitate - get one. You'll also get a medium gain pedal thrown in for free with the gain switch. I never write reviews, but this pedal absolutely justifies it. One note - some of the online videos seemed to make it sound kind of raspy. I'm not hearing that. On the lower gain setting, it sounds just like the clean signal, with just a little hair on it, which is exactly what I was looking for.
