Hey guys, it's been around 25 yrs that I play guitar, 99% of the time clean tone. However these days I'm chasing a tone, or better say a family of tone : the very very looooong sustain players like Santana or Gary Moore get. Before you start to say "it's all in their fingers", or "it's all in their amps", yes, I kinda know that. 1. yes, they both have a huge left hand technique 2. They both use hi-gain amps, cranked up, so that the power amp stage is breaking. But what I'm looking for is... a pedal through the clean channel of an amp, go figure! I wonder which pedal could emulate the sound of an amp whose power amp stage is breaking, to get this long and sweet sustain. It's just an approximation that I'm looking for : Santana's and Moore's tone are not the same, and actually their note varied throughout the years anyway. But I assume what kind of tone I'm chasing anyway. Btw, I must precise I expect to play those tones with my Mayback Lester 59 (a very nice replica of an LP), or my old 335, through my DV Amp head (full tubes, lots of headroom, Blackface-ish tone). All your suggestions will be appreciated!
