    Greg Howe would sound good with a Teisco Del Ray and a Pignose. the guy is incredible.

    I do like his tone with the Cornford. SWEET!!!

    You need whatever pedal he's using.

    does it really sound "pedaly" or is he just jucin' the preamp?

    I do prefer power amp overdrive, myself if THEY let me . . .

    greg's amp is stock, but he boosts it just a tad with a bb preamp. he runs a w/d/w set up that sounds amazing.

    For my tastes, the Cornfords do very well with a little push from a good boost or distortion pedal (I prefer Homebrew stuff). When I'm praticing with my little Harlequin I always have a pedal on and that little thing sounds like a monster at whisper volumes.

    Neither my Hellcat, nor my MK50 really need it, but again for my tastes I like a tad more saturation and sustain than either provides (for leads only - for rhythm work both are perfect). The Cornfords take pedals extremely well and really start to sparkle when pushed a little. I really dig the Cornford amps and use them more than my Marshall and Bogner Ecstasy.

    Mike.

    I like Greg Howe, but I find him to be a bit boring. Not to hijack the thread, but this is my favorite Cornford MKII tone:

    some sweet tones going on there , but I thought , musically, the track he was playing was very dull indeed.

    Sounds great, love the arrangment on Giant Steps. I like the way he uses fingers on his right hand as well. Anybody know what type of guitar hes playing, Im looking for a solid body stratish type with humbuckers and a good trem system ?

    The guitar is a Peavey, I believe.
