I’m really excited to share this.. Jay Dee Maness had already told me about it then John Macy stopped by Lubbock a couple of days ago and let me try out his new Baby Bloomer pedal by Goodrich Sound.. This thing is really almost indescribable. The best way I know to describe what it does is that it gives you a tube vibe without changing your tone like some of others I’ve tried.. It seemed to enhance the growl that my Zum Hybrid already had.. Anyway, I just now ordered one and should get it next week.. Can’t wait to get it here..

The best description for me is “Yes, please...”...

Hmm... Limited edition and sold out according to the Goodrich website.

Any idea whether more will become available?

Is it the tube sound everyone wants? Buy a tube amp. I’m nearly 69 years old and carry a tube amp. You want a tube amp sound just buy a tube amp. It’s kind of like steel builders say “It has that PP sound.” Nothing has that PP sound except another PP. Just like tubes. Just saying in my experience.

I didn’t get it because I wanted a tube amp sound, but wanted a good sound. It does that and it’s worth the investment, in my opinion. It gives a rich, clear sound and it seems to me it would enhance ANY amp's performance.

It does more to me than just simulate a tube amp. I love it with my Telonics amp and adds some sweetness, as I would suspect it would with most SS amps, but it also enhances my all tube recording chain (a Black Box with a Sarno VCool also.

I got a demo from JayDee today about the Bloomer.
"Bloomer" is the right word... the sound just blooms when you kick it in.
That's the best way I can describe it. Enough tech-talk... it sounds really cool.
Hat's off to Kevin...
