The one I've played that had the least was a Spaceman Aphelion.
VFE Blues King
A clean amp?
Rockett Blue Note
Mine was HIGHLY compressed.
Timmy, Basic Audio Futureman imo.
How about a Wampler Euphoria in the "Open" position?
I'd agree that the Aphelion has some compression. It's not as crazy as others I've played (particularly the TS variety), but it's definitely there. FWIW, the Aphelion is what I use for my OD. Really great sound, feels very "amp-like" to me. I hate that term, but it's fitting in this case.
For less compressed, I'll second the Wampler Euphoria's open setting, and add the Blues Driver (Keeley mod improves the tone quite a bit) and Catalinbread SFT.
no OD! did I win??
This or a Timmy.
Isn't overdrive compressed by nature? Isn't compression necessary in order to get overdrive in the first place?
Which is why the OP is looing for the LEAST compressed OD.
Blues Driver, Red Llama, OCD.
Mad Professor Sweet Honey OD and Menatone Red Snapper also fit the bill, IMO.
He said OD.
A clean amp has no OD.
The Jetter Helium is a solid choice.
Smallsound/bigsound Mini seems uncompressed to me.
Really? Maybe if you run it at full gain. I have tons of headroom w dial at noon.
