Well, been lurking around this forum reading up posts day in day out and finally joined. I actually need help from all of you out there who's "been there done that"/ tried lots of stompboxes from the various boutique pedal makers. Living in Singapore, I don't actually get much coverage on stuffs like Fulltone, Barber, MI Audio and such. Not many ppl uses them around here and my only references are online samples that ppl recorded or reading reviews from sites. Ok, currently what im using is this: Ibanez RG1550->Keeley comp->Sansamp GT2->DS-1 SEM->amp(varies, depends on the different gig organisers) I'm actually trying to nail that elusive tone, somewhere along the lines of Dream Theater, Skid Row.....hard rock with doses of metal at times. While using the GT2 i found that it's really great for my rhythm chugging and stuffs, but not enough presence and harmonics. Im the lead player in my band...so definitely need some cut through the mix at times for my lead parts. Hope you guys can advise me here, even recommend me another staple dist unit.....a whole new rig....i'll appreciate any help. Thanks again in advance.
