Alright, just the essentials. Strat-George L-Super reverb. For blues really all u need.
I don't like to turn up loud enough to get a Fender to break up, hence the need for a Higher gain amp.I plug my strat straight into my super reverb and turn up as much as possible.Sometimes I find I want more gain but if I add an OD pedal it just seems to muddy everything up. I play mostly blues and rootsy music so it's usually not a problem.I also feel straight into the amp I tend to play cleaner and choose my notes more carefully.
You should practice more.That was one KILLER Pignose, wasn't it....?
I've a 70s vintage Pig and a newer one with a Jensen MOD5 speaker.
Neither gets that killer tone...
Then again, neither has been down to the Crossroads...
