I do like his sounds. I saw him in Santa Barbara a year or two ago. It's not what would work for me, usually, as he used a TON of reverb, but it sounds good. He probably keeps that bass control down.Ryan Adams uses an EP Booster with an SP Compressor with his Princetons. Works for him?!?!?
This is a really good point. I'm changing my answer to EQD Speaker Cranker. More of an overdrive than a boost, but it really nails the sound of your amp pushed (without actually pushing the preamp too hard)At that volume, I'm not sure a pure boost is going to add any hair on its own, really.
I use a RC Booster as well. Such an amazing pedal, works so good with BF Fender amps!I use an RC Booster with my PR. The gain switch begins to fatten up the tone from about 8 o'clock to 2 and then adds a kind of edge of breakup tone - not really gain like an OD pedal. Another thing you can do is turn your amp up louder to get a fuller tone, and then lower the volume control on the pedal to keep your volume down. It's a very versatile, transparent pedal.
