I mostly play chords and do some picking. No leads. I'll be using p90s into a 15 watt class A amp. I'm not a huge tubescreamer fan...maybe because the only one I used (maxon OD9) seems to lose definition. I've got an opportunity to pick up a Gristle King but that might not be much different than the tubescreams. I've used a Barber Silver LTD and it worked pretty well but I would need a clean boost to go along with it. (I've actually asked this question in a couple differnet ways, but the more I hear, the more clarity I get on what info I need to give you guys.) Hope this helps...(me)! I'm going to make the move on Monday.
