    What's the od (very marshall-esque I supose) that you suggest to get the sound of Pearl Jam's DO THE EVOLUTION? A KOTB (too modern?), a WMB, a KOT, a Foxy Brown (too vintage?)...what else? What should I choose?

    Well, I know their boards have always had TS's on them, and I know Stone even had a Turbo TS during that period.

    I'm fairly certain that's just a nice marshall.

    yeah thats mostly cranked marshalls and fenders there. a ts-9 was used by mike and a sd-9 was used by stone if i believe. it might be hard to get that whole sound out of a single pedal but any pedal that you find sounds similar to a cranked valve amp will get you there. that is of course unless you don't have a valve amp that you can.

    Ok I know that's a pure amp cracked...is it a plexi maybe? I'm looking for a pedale that can get me closer...I can easily buy more pedals than aps;-)

    It did not sound like a TS to me...I'm talking about the sound of the main riff..it seemd like the natural overdrive of an amp, maybe pushed with a booster. Anyway since it sound very marshall and I have a Fender-ish amp, I was wondering about the pedal that might do the trick...

    Oh do they? Mike and Stone used to tour with trentino amps, and both had multible amps and cabs to go with that. Those guys have pretty decent amount of gear so it's propably not possible to say what's what exactly. DTE could tube screamer with some good british tube amp.

    I play a cranked Fender DRRI and the SD-9 puts it into that territory!

    actually, I'd be more interested to learn how they got the lead sound on Red Mosquito off of No Code. I've always loved the way that that sounded.

    the key to that recording really is the doubling of parts. Stone is playing pretty fuzzy electric, and Mike is playing really clean Strat at the beginning of the song, which gives Stone's part definition. Stone's tone could probably gotten with a dialed back fuzz. Because it's just a piece of the puzzle, it doesn't sound "huge" or "full". it just sorta smears, then blends.

    perfect example why PJ's team approach still rules.

    cheers

    Stone used an SD-9 for DTE. Also, GiventoWail is THE resource for everything Pearl Jam. :)
