I thought that the mesa boogie v-1 bottle rocket was the ultimate "mark series mesa in a pedal." What i found out was that it was actually an excellent booster/OD for a hot amp... but didn't deliver the "liquidy goods" when I wanted to use it on its own. Alas, the tone quest continues.... I mostly use fuzzes and boosters for dirt (i play a tele and LP through an ac30), but I want something a little more contemporary sounding that can cover the ground that my fuzzes (BC-108 fuzzface, big muff NYC) don't do. To me that means the Europa-era santana tones, Eric Johnson's Tube Driver sounds (got his fuzz tone down), and Neal Schon's smooth but powerful lead sound. I feel like i got everything else covered, but I need to get the last piece of the puzzle. I use treble boosters and clean boosters in my rig too, but i'm looking for something just to help me get these last few higher gain tones.... probably something Mesa Mark/Soldano SLO voiced. Might it be.... *gulp* a dumbley pedal??? If so then i've gone nuts. suggestions??
