    think i may need more balls , i have a gainster and tim thru a tweed super /strat single coils.
    i feel a bit thin doing heavier tunes , i used an old marshall combo at practice and got great gain , pinch harmonics that i cant get out of my amp.

    wondering what to get , eternity , tonebone classic dist. ?

    Tonebone Classic for sure. Very versitile, can add some major girth to your tone, at normal mid setting, should be almost exactly the midrange response of your amp. Also has nice clear highs that aren't harsh. IMO the best all around distortion pedal made.

    The Eternity is killer, but not what you're looking for, for this purpose.

    Check out the latest version of the Barber Direct Drive I have been using this as my main pedal since I got it! You can definitely get a fat hot rodded Marshall tone from it!

    I have to agree with the new Barber Direct Drive. Great pedal with a variety of tones.

    I agree, the Radial Tonebone Classic is the BEST TUBE distortion pedal on the market. It sounds JUST LIKE a good tube amp, and cleans up with a turn of your guitar volume.

    I've used it with backline amps, and it always sounds great with whatever is provided.
