Out of curiosity, what pedals would you use to change a sterile SS amp into something as good and tubish as possible? I assume these would be put last in the pedal chain so that it would create the basic clean tube like sound, and higher gain pedals could go in front, but is this necessary? The V-Stack set clean works well except they have a particular coloration that you may not want, and isn't terribly clean with high gain pickups. My Barber Direct Drive actually works much like my old V-Stack Classic for this too. My Throbak ODB set clean adds some harmonic overtones like a power tube amp... some fuzz pedals set clean would also work to a degree. I assume the Blackstone would work, but would have to go first in the chain. What others? Some pedals designed for their interaction with a tube amp may or may not work well alone. My MI Audio Blue Boy Deluxe could work well only if set to virtually clean, otherwise it has too much (symmetric clipping?) compression for this application. I'd be curious how the Barber Small Fry, the Tim/Timmy, Zendrive and others work to bring a dead amp to life. (I'm not referring to pedals that can bring a dead amp to life with high gain, because that is a pretty big list. High gain is where gain pedals excel most. Low gain pedals are usually designed to be low gain for a tube amp. No one wants to clean boost a dead SS amp. Also, some tube pedals could work, but I'm more curious about simple SS pedals. Maybe some BJF pedals would work, but I haven't paid attention to them only because of their price/my income ratio.
