    i first have to say i love my mesa tremoverb.. i truel can get whatever sound i want on tap.. its full lush and super heavy.. love it.. but its tough using a two channel amp when i want every sound...lol.

    heres what i got:
    bbpreamp
    dbx eq
    phase 90evh
    DD5
    Gxc
    Ground Control Pro

    soon to have gmajor and RC booster

    i have an awsome heavy full sound just with amp and eq.. add some bb to make it chugg and delay for depth

    what im thinkin of doing is using the RC for clean.. bb over clean for a smooth lead/ rythm.. a maxon808 for the chug over the amp.. but what over drive would make my already distorted heavy amp sound smooth and clear for a really distorted lead... kinda like a Mark2c+ just sustain and smooth distortion for days.. no ruffness of the duel rec at all

    any advice whith what i already have would be supper helpful as one would think that one od would be enough when im lookin at 3-4 lol

    also beeing use to the bb to just make my amp chug... aka gain at 1 volume at 10.. would the maxon be good to take its place... i just feel that i can get soo much better sound out of the bb if i use it more efficiently over the clean and tweek it


    thanks guys GOdBLess

    I used a TS9 RI (stock) with my Dual Recto head and 4x12 and my Trem-O-Verb Head and 2x12. I used it to push both clean and distorted amp tones. The Tubescreamer just seemed to blend well with the Mesa's basic tone. I used it with good results on both the orange and red channels, both vintage and modern and clean or distorted. By the time I had my TS9 modded to 808 specs the Dual Recto and T-Verb were a thing of the past. I do kind of miss them, just not lugging them around!

    I'm a big fan of the FD-2 into mine... on comp-cut of course.
