What I'm after is rather warm, bluesy solo sound. For reference, think of an overwound Strat's neck pup into a Boogie MkI with the gain around half and the guitar's volume and tone rolled off slightly. Single notes are on the verge of overdrive, and chords do overdrive. Now, I can get the exact sound I want, but I can't get it to "sing". I figure it's 'cause I don't have enough compression, but I don't want more gain....I have gain left over, but it kills the sound if I use too much. I guess what I'm asking is, will a compressor get me what I'm after, or should I look at something else? You'll have to excuse me if this is a dumb question, but I don't have a whole lot of experience in "clean" soloing..... Cheers.
