08-07-2009, 09:01 AM
Title says it. What have you found success with in front of your Goodsell and which model amp AND what type of guitar and style of music helps as a point of reference.
LIGHT-GAIN OD: Klon & KOT v4
MEDIUM-GAIN OD: KOT v4 & Eternity
HIGH-GAIN OD: Barber DD (and DDSS)
DISTORTION: nothing comes to mind but need to rattle my brain.

Timmy and my old Rat. Ive tried quite a few ODs and distortions and these will never leave my board or the herd.

My Goodsell LE 17/5 has never met a (quality) dirt pedal that it didn't like. This amp shines with pedals...KOT, Timmy, DRD, HBOD, Fulltender, Cactus Juice, Model H, M'OD, LGW, PB&J, Hot Cake, TS-808, E, Keeley DS-1, Direct Drive, Ernie, Sun Face...:aok

I'm running Custom 33s with a Tim, Keeley BD2, FD2 and Crunch Box. I've also had success with a Zvex BOR, MJM Blues Devil and a few others that come and go. The Tim just straight up kills with this amp for transparent, light OD, and won't be leaving my board anytime soon.

Creation Audio Labs' Mk4.23 for transparent clean boost and a ZenDrive for everything else in front of my MkIII; also a TS-808.

I have limited experience with Goodsell but the one I've heard is very good with any decent OD. Goodsell Super 17 is one of my absolute favorites. Just wonderful tone. I'd imagine a Zendrive would be fantastic with the Goodsell.

I have a Goodsell Super 7 that loves my Lizard Leg Flying Dragon. Sounds excellent with the R9 alone, but the boost give the tele a whole new dimension.

I have a super seventeen and use a Carb for fuzz (sounds freaking awesome!)
I also use a plain ole Boss BluesDriver for overdrive and it sounds killer with single coils...I used to have a Klon and it sounded great with it too.
I try to play fusion-y and blues-ish...

I've also yet to find a pedal, dirt or otherwise, that my Goodsell SS17 doesn't totally bond with!
My current favorite is the Rockett Boost. I also use a KOT and SunFace. Also, I set my RMC 3 wah for a bit of drive, and it sounds awesome too!

Zendrive, BB Preamp, Kar Krash, FD2 etc. They all sound great thru my S17.

Just settling in with my Super 17. Blown away by the tones I get straight up.
Using a custom 'tele bought off these pages: Seymour Duncan Antiquity at the
neck, '59 at the bridge.
It's Christmas over and over ...
