I'm pretty much in agreement with everyone here. Teles, AC30's or similar or my Swart. Pedals..For me it goes somewhat like this:- Low gain "clear" overdrive typically a Timmy used to add a little additional rhythm edge to just-clipping amp without messing with the amp tonality too much. My core rhythm tone. Low gain "warmer" overdrive. Used alone as an alternative rhythm sound especially for riff based rhythm themes to suupply a little more compressed feel. Also gets stacked with the Timmy very occasionally for a big rock crunch tone that can sing into feedback. Clean boost. Depending on the amp/gig I will sometimes use my RC Booster and sometimes my Klon. I use them to boost solos post overdrives or on their own. Trem Delay. A little slap on solos or I tap in a long loping thing occasionally for textural volume swells. Like Erksin I've always appreciated the merits of fuzz for Alt-Country but struggled to make one work for me. Nice Mr Mailman just delivered a BJF Snow White Fuzz for me this morning so I'll be looking forward to giving it a try. I'm awaiting a Dumb Bell and over the next month or so very exciting custom stuff from Telenordia and Paul C.
