    BTW the Blues Devil was designed specifically for that SRV live at the El Maccambo sound in mind. :D

    IMO, I thought SRV's tone with the TS-10 was less than stellar.

    Just for fun, here's a clip of my vintage '64 Vibroverb, an '82 TS-9 kicks in for a few seconds half way through. Maybe the playing's not SRV, but the gear is close. On my JCM800 clean channel, I can turn the bass all the way down, the treble all the way up, and switch on the bright switch on my hotplate to come fairly close to the Vibroverb tone. Perhaps amp setup will have a lot to do with your quest.

    Blues Devil is great for that sound and for the prices they go for used it's a great deal to boot. It's not for the SRV sound but the BD goosing the Zendrive is great for Robben type sounds.

    I'm with Gulliver on this one. An early 80's ts-9 is just the pedal in my book. Although, I do find it useless for just about everything else. They just aren't my kind of pedal.

    Make sure you have the write singles!! I finally have them (v60lp in my case) and it makes a HUGE difference, probably more of a difference than the amps/effects that you use.

    I can get fairly close with a Reverend Drivetrain II into a Voodoo-1 set as more of a boost. That and a middle single coil PU.

    My Aramat Green Machine is the best SRV tone that I've gotten. I never had an original 808 though just the reissues.

    TS-10 is what SRV was using as his main OD when he passed...a lot cheaper than most od's and easy to find. An 808 is nice too, but at $400 vs. $50, I'd check out a TS-10.

    Reverend DT2 is nice, too. W/ bass & treble controls.
