    Just got one of these (Junior Barnyard) yesterday... wanted one for years. I've only had a few minutes with it, so no time to explore it at all, but just plugging it in, it sounds pretty authentic to me. I need some time with it, especially since NOTHING is labeled LOL... I've been digging, and I guess one toggle is a bass cut, and the other is a high cut. I'll figure it out.

    Now we need to somehow setup a comparison between the JB and the JJ-150! (the "other octal preamp pedal")

    Here's an image that explains the controls on the Jr. Barnyard pedal: Google Image Result for http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1080/6428/products/Jr_Barnyard_MANUAL_2020_grande.png?v=1604892009

    Yeah, I found that pic, it was helpful. I basically leave both switches UP, which on my pedal means the left toggle (bright switch) is OFF, and the right toggle is UP, which means bass is CUT when I engage the boost side. Right now I'm running the preamp vol on about 10:30 and the boost vol at 0 (still adds gain), which allows me to toggle between 2 different gain settings***, with too much increase in volume.

    ***similar to the other "octal" pedal(thread here), the LL-150 demo video: they call one side "Oscar Moore" and the gainier side "Junior Banard" LOL

    I'd still like to check out the LL-150... for the sole fact that is has a master volume, or output control, if you will. Tavo never puts that on his pedals for some reason, and I find them quite handy... but no complaints about the tones of the JB: Tavo nailed it, imo. And if you have seen the videos of Johnathan Stout using one (in threads here), look them up! It really is like an EH-185 in a box. EHIAB lol

    The boost switch and knob on the v1 model has been been replaced with a blend control... you blend in the "mic channel" side as much as you want. All the same tones are still there, the boost just isn't foot switchable anymore. I like the new design. V1 will still be available for those who want the foot switchable boost.

    Awesome awesome awesome. I love it even more than V1 !! I don't need the foot switchable boost, as to me this pedal is an AMP- I set it for the old-school tone and play. I use the blend knob for a dirt/EQ adjustment control....


    Turns my Gretsch(or tele)>PRRI into an ES-125>ES-150! Well, you know... kinda'... with an actual jazzbox, I would expect great results.


    Stellar work, Tavo!!Nocturne The Jr. Barnyard Preamp-img_1866-jpg
