    anyone got any suggestions? so far only the Keeley and Analogman TS808's sound awesome. the LDO's nice too. but, the ocd doesnt cut it. anyone else with experience with this amp head?

    I used to play a newer Gretsch Jet through an Orange AD30 combo -and this setup was great with a Hotcake. Possibly the best live tone I've ever had (sadly i sold the Orange - it was too loud and heavy). Grab a Hotcake it won't dissapoint.
    Alternative - PEARL OD-O5 - criminally underrated pedal IMO.:banana

    Any decent Rangemaster Treblebooster clone will make it shine too.

    That's cheating. The Hotcake rocks ANY amp!

    Alot of guys would argue that point. Most don't think its that great at all on 6L6 or 6V6 amps.

    Wow, really? I love it into my Fender Hot Rod Deville. That's great news. When I finally get my Metro Plexi it'll really rock!

    Cusack screamer was always my personal favorite with it.
