Sparkle By Name Sparkle By Nature
Lets get the obvious out of the way, this is based on a vintage 808 tubescreamer. What is different about the Sparkle drive is how it attempts to save you a few thousand (insert your currency here). You see clean blends were normally reserved for bass players and have appeared on bass pedals for AGES but if a guitarist wanted this type of effect … well we’d need to buy a splitter and a separate second amp which we’d have dedicated to that wet/dry set-up.
The Sparkle drive attempts this by allowing you to dial in that clean amp tone to your own taste. You even have the option of having the clean dialled all the way in and simply using the Sparkle Drive as a clean boost.
So where did the “MOD” come into things, well the original was so popular that all of those tones are still onboard and in addition we have 3 extra modes called … wait for it … 1, 2 and 3.
1. Is described as the Lead Circuit, 2. Is Rhythm and 3. is for high gain so go check it all out and see if you agree with those descriptions.
