CJOD Em Rock Clip (T-bird amp)

This is a backing from a Cyberjam started in Sweden, not really my style but fun never the less. This was a great opportunity to try he CJOD in a different context. Volume on the Custom By Cougar Thunderbird amp is low, around 9 o'clock which gives "blues" OD or mild rock Crunch with my SG. So I switched on the CJOD to take it a few steps further. To my it sounds rather good. You can still hear the amps tone and it sounds a lot like the amp turned up to 3 o'clock but i bit smoother and easier on the ears (not as loud). The amps turned up is bit "ruder" for lack of better words.
The thing i like about the CJ here is that it gives me a lot of turned up amps feel but colors the sound just a bit to give me a slightly different flavor :dude

Track can be found HERE .
You can compare with the T-bird clips on Soundclick. It's a g12-65 speaker with a Sm57 close to the middle of the cone. No EQ or compression in the mix just echo.

Feel free to comment :)

Great tone! Smooth but aggressive and very natural sounding. I really dig the CJOD (it's the only OD pedal left on my board). Nice playing too!

BTW: the rhythm tone and playing reminds me of early Pat Travers. Very cool all around!

Thanks :) , rhythm is part of the backing so I'm innocent of that. Great pedal indeed :dude it has the most natural attack i have ever heard from a pedal. Very amp like in that respect, it does color the tone a bit after the intial attack which I have grown into liking, i did not like that at first but it give me a slightly different color than my amps.

I have commented various times in the past that the Em Pro was my favorite Two Rock to date and this tone is another good example of why I still feel that way. Smooth, woody and just raw enough to be in your face. Very nice tone!
