The Double Barrel is for the player who needs a versatile transparent overdrive at medium and light gain levels. You won’t find face melting distortion here but you will find overdrive with the character and stacking abilities to cover most any tonal need.
The left side is our TS808 replica with improvements like a more usable tone control, more focused lows, better presence and warmer clipping. The right side is our own“Morning Glory”. Transparent, discreet and open are what lurk inside this circuit.
When these two circuits are stacked, something magic happens. Tones that are original and fresh come with ease as well as added flexibility due to the “order switching” toggle that lets you decide what pedal comes first.
We are convinced that this is one of the greatest 2 in 1 pedals ever made... Seriously.
If your having problems getting the tones you wan’t, just snatch the Double Barrel and see what happens!

The Morning Glory side of this pedal is totally transparent and organic sounding. You can back the dirt off completely even with humbuckers. Up all the way is pretty mild. It honestly sounds amazing. I have never been a fan of the TS 808 but everybody raves about how great it sounds in front of another distortion box. I figured I'd take a chance and try it out. It is totally amazing in front of every distortion pedal that I own. Cranking the TS side and putting it in front of the Morning Glory sounds incredible. Take some time to experiment with the sounds. I find that every setting of the TS side (Crunch, Boost, Classic) all do a perfect job when placed in front. Another plus to this pedal is that it is pretty small. I was surprised when I opened it up because it looks bigger online than it is in real life. I'm glad I took a chance and forked out the cash for the Double Barrel.

I really like this pedal. Small footprint for a dual od pedal. The MG side is pretty bright and the TS 808 side has more bass then usual. So there is endless sounds with this thing. Get one. You won't be disappointed...

This is the nicest overdrive pedal I have ever used! I have used a huge range of boutique and mainstream, analog and digital overdrives and for my personal tastes I wouldn't play any of them next to this bad boy.
I have always hated hype words like organic and sparkly, so I will just say that the tone shaping abilities of the Morning Glory side of this pedal are unreal. The drive knob accentuates the tones you have selected through both pickups and tone control on the pedal. This side won't drown you in muddy overdrive, but it will add harmonics to the nth degree.
If you are a fan of the classic tubescreamer but haven't play the 808, then you are missing out. There is no character in the original that this version does not master. Even vintage purists would agree that the added gain stages and tone shaping sound (might I say) better than the original.
This pedal will do it all... don't fear pulling the trigger!

This pedal delivers the most transparent and rich low gain overdrives that I've ever heard. The morning glory is a great overdrive for all styles and fits well in settings with other chordal instruments. The 808 is a great vintage tone but much more transparent than any other tubescreamer circuit I have owned. You can't go wrong with any of the combinations within this pedal!

Great pedal, I play mainly praise music for my church and that spans a large spectrum of tone. This overdrive is very transparent, and stackable. I have the morning glory set to go over the 808 and it runs so hot! This pedal gives you a good bite with the gain and tone up as well as a nice clean boost with a little grit with the low gain settings.

To be honest this is my first overdrive I have ever purchased after looking for many months...and I am very very with it!
The description of it being 'transparent' is very accurate. I also love of the gain/clipping options this pedal gives you to dial in tones you can use for your particular style.
If you are looking for a low to medium gain overdrive this is a great place to start.
It has modern tone and is not just trying to replicate last century. There are plenty of other pedals doing that!
My only issue is that with both sides of the pedal activated I find it a little noisy in its operation.

this is a 808 clone followed by the JHS morning glory. The morning glory is my personal favourite overdrive, and when stacked on the 808 circuit it really adds vintage flair. this is an overdrive that can fit almost any player and you want to have this in your arsenal.
