    Hi,
    I´m pretty satisfied with my Road King but when it comes to soloing I wish it would have a more creamy or fuzzy sound not that clear and tight as the rhythm sound.
    Can you recommend a pedal that gives me that tone when activated on an already overdriven channel?

    Greetz, Chris

    you might just want to try a TS or a TS clone before you try something else....

    Its a solution thats easily overlooked;)

    They invented a pedal to do just that. ;)

    The Everman Fuzzdrive G2 is great for pushing a dirty amp and put some fuzz around the edges. It's got some OD, some fuzz and a TON of output. I used to use one with the lead channel on my Rivera.

    +1 The Everman pedal is perfect for this application. I use mine into an overdriving single-channel amp, and it fattens and sweetens the notes. You can get the pedal from some retailers or directly from J's website.

    A KLON, by definition, is what you are looking for.

    I should have mentioned that I´m from germany. So do you know an online store who sells Everman?

    Yeah, Tonefactor does, Pedalgeek does, and J Everman sells them directly from his site: http://www.jeverman.com/FDG2.html

    Looks like J might have them on special sale on his site right now. I'm not sure about any of these retailers' international shipping policies, however.

    Big +1 on that. I also like the Barber DD with the gain off and volume at 1:00.

    Thanks for your answers. The sound files on the everman site sound like what I´m searching. I guess I´ll go for that one. Btw I already tried an TS808 but it didn´t work. Way to noisy.

    I'm using a Pro-Analog Boost-Royale to get my already crunchy Vox into creamy leads and heavy crunch.

    I'm using oddly enough, a Boss LS-2 Line Selector pedal, it can give me up to 40db of boost, so that really drives the front end of my demeter and 65 twin... I think to many of us are just using this forum to talk about OUR personal boost pedals, sry lol

    Not ment to hi-jack thread :p

    Evermann Fuzzdrive will get you there but I found an even better one and that's the Cusack ScreamerFuzz. The Cusack allows you to get TS AND fuzz and they make a hell of a combination and a very smooth, creamy tone.

    Clark Gainster. It adds that extra grit to my other OD's and distortion boxes. Is also a great stand alone Tweed tone.

    I think just about any good fuzz pedal can help with that application. I rather like how my Pro Analog Power Driver beefs up the signal and smoothens out crunchy rhythm while maintaining clarity. Another pedal I'm really liking is the Analogman King of Tone, when it comes to singing smooth leads, it's the first one I generally go with. I've had them both for several months and keep going back and forth as to which one I like better, but they both give my amp a significantly better lead tone than what it was equipped with stock.
