I guess technically I use a clean amp... I have an always on Malekko Sloika drive set high volume and low gain and saturate at minimum to add zing and body to my cleans and it makes my main Pharaoh fuzz more badass too. My clean signal was always super thin and spanky even with humbuckers so I found this the best way to get nicer cleans and not affect the Big fuzz sound too much.
What would you suggest for a Fender Blues Deville (6l6)? I own a gibson es339 and play Shoegaze, my main distortion has aways been a '78 opamp Big Muff, I just bought the Deville but I haven't played it with the band still
Fulltone OCD is the main/higher gain drive, frequently boosted by a Barber Gain Changer (both @ 18 volts) which is my light OD tone. Also, I like running a compressor before these two to fatten things up with my Strat.
I use an MI Blues Boy Deluxe for low gain and an HBE Full Metal Jacket & EC Overlord for medium
For higher gain there's a Dirt & Ernie (Dirt side is Marshally) & EC Mystical Sustainer
and then there's fuzz...but sometimes I use the Amptweaker Tight Fuzz as a low gainer, it's got a wide range
Many, many pedals. Many pedals I haven't even told my girlfriend I've bought. I've bought so many pedals I can't even remember. I've bought pedals and immediately flipped them without playing them. I've owned four Timmys and didn't like any of them. I've owned pedals and didn't play them in church. I've bought pedals just because of how they look. I've bought pedals because they were popular on TGP and then I stacked them and hated them. I'm a horrible man. Klon.
The FD2 is my #1 OD.
I sometimes boost it with either one of the TS's or the BoR
I will also sometimes use one of the TS's to boost the BoR.
And sometimes use a Fuzz (Which changes often) to push a TS.
All into an AC30.
Someone mentioned a compressor.
The only time I usually my compressor, its the only pedal on, although sometimes I will have a little delay with it.
