    Just curious if anybody knows of a good pedal to add some BF vibe to the clean side of a tube amp.I guess fender "chime" would be what i'm looking for.

    I dunno if it will work, but boss makes a fender based pedal. One on the tweed bassman and one on the bf deluxe reverb. I would give those a try. Might not be possible, depending on your amp though. Good luck.

    +1 Great pedal.

    Those Boss/Fender pedals suck, stay away.

    The Ethos is said to have great bf style cleans on its clean channel.

    +1 for the Lovepedal Super 6.

    I sold mine because my amp is a "65 Super Reverb and the pedal sounded just like my amp!

    +3 on the Barb EQ... You'll get a BF vibe with it's tone stack plus a tweed and Plexi thing with a flick of the switch - you can't go wrong...

    Yeah, I forgot to mention to you that a buddy of mine has a mesa mark 2 that has a really harsh and peaky clean tone and with a boss eq pedal set to the classic V he was able to make it sound very close to a fender. The boss pedal works much better than the built-in eq of the mesa set to the same pattern...

    as an aside, as I a/b the allen and the axefx, the axefx has better cleans.

    Oh yea, the BarbEq is the one to look for. I was using it on with Carvin X amps to cop a Fender sound AND a Marshall voicing. Can't go wrong with it.
