[This was copied directly from a post I made on Harmony-Central. It recieved no responses there.] For a while, I have been considering going a mostly pedal route for my tone. I'd like some suggestions to get into the area of what I'm looking for. My current setup is: Fender Tele > Boss TU-2 > Ibanez DE-7 (used only for a noise floor between songs.) > Boss DD-3 > Carvin X100B I use both channels on the Carvin currently. While I don't mind the distortion on the Carvin, it's very raw and compressed sounding. I guess this isn't a bad thing, but I'd like to have a more tamed sound. I'm really digging the tone of my friend's Orange and another friend's Mesa Dual Recto Maverick. A mid-gain sound that's just very even and not overbearing. For an example of the Orange, go here: http://www.myspace.com/theprizefight I'm not sure how possible it would be to acheive this sound with a pedal, but that's what I'm aiming to do. I have plans to get a Barber Tone Press to even out all the clean tapping and single notes that get lost in a live situation. Do you guys have suggestions of pedals I might want to check out for this kind of sound? I apologize if it's not clear what I'm looking for. I basically want to get my sound to be: clear, "warm", not ripping ears apart, and still loud. I'm getting a 2x12 Avatar cab in the future with V30s, unless there are better speakers to look at. My current speakers are Celestion G12M-70s. The tone on Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape is pretty similar to what I'm looking for. A really solid rock tone.
