    First off like all of you guys I love the thrill of the hunt
    like anyone else but as many of you my funds are not endless
    and after 15 years theres one song in me head I want to play
    and I can't get the right amp.FLYING IN A BLUE DREAM.I have
    the tone almost perfect with a CAA od100se+ thru a g-force but
    I lack harmonic feedback.That song has the most amazing controllable
    feedback I have ever heard.If anyone has come across an amp in production that can nail that effect @ bedroom levels please contribute to this thread.Thanks guys I'm getting broke and tired.- doug

    Have you tried Satch's recipe of a DS-1 into Marshall? I believe he also used the DS-1 into a Roland JC-120 a lot, believe it or not.

    If your as close as you say you are consider yourself lucky. The feedback part may be as simple as turning the amp up and finding the right distance between the guitar and amp. Bob

    Yeah guys I'm so close but again it's the feedback I'm not getting .
    I have 4 ds-1 pedals from various boutique pedal makers and they generally cut my tone in half.My eric shannon oxide sure gives it a run for th emoney but the sustain/tone and feedback don't seem to blend together.Oh well it's a hobby anyway back to the tool shed.- doug:rolleyes:

    Getting the notes to morph into feedback like that is nearly impossible without using a considerable amount of volume. Far past bedroom levels, I'm afraid.
