    I just got a Tim, and I've gotta say I've heard plenty of pedals that are flubbier on the bottom. What kind of amps you running, Maxim?

    that has 2 EL34's right? Carb is designed according to its manufacturer as: "Carb is designed to give you the sound of a set of EL34's being pushed into breakup". Should match quite well with your Orange. It matches well with my EL84's in my AC30. It's really about the cleanest OD I've ever played as far as not adding color to ones sound. It really does just sound like the amp it in front of breaking up. One of the best parts is it really retains the tone of the guitar being plugged in. I always have had trouble with OD's coloring up my fender strat. I love flipping between pickups with the selector switch, and few pedals sound good when you do this... CARB definatly fits the bill well.

    Listen to the manufacter's clip on his website: Gaspedals.net That is really what it sounds like.

    mmmm..Maxim- that's one of my favorite new amps! That whole Rockerverb series- especially the 50 & 100 watt heads just kick all kinds of a$$. If I had to go w/a guitar/cable/amp setup, they'd be one of my top choices.

    ..but - I'm not surprised you're not happy w/Tim and the Orange. I had a helluva time trying to use my pedalboard w/a rocker, and ultimately returned it and went back to my BF Fenders & old Voxes that have worked so well w/all my pedals for years.

    Glorious dirty/clean tones, but IMO, they're just not pedal-friendly amps..

    If you need gain with a tight low end...i'd probably go the MI Crunchbox or Xotic BB...the BB having bass/treble controls. If you have a tight thumpin' 'great' tone to start with...i'd recommend the Eternity. The Cot50's also a good alternative to push the amp. Depends on the amount of gain you need i guess. :)

    Check out some of the Barber Pedals, the bass on those are very tight.
