    Recently i finally upgraded my modeling amp to an AC15. I'm very happy with it, but some of my guitars seem to prefer a tweed tone. Any way to get this from a pedal?

    The Lovepedal Les Luis seems to be the thing to grab... It's my favorite thus far, anyways.

    I have three that I like: The Clark Gainster, the Greer Ghetto Stomp and the V-Stack Tweedy. All of these are very good. My favorite changes daily.

    I didn't find it cut through live in a two guitar setting with a tweed-style amp very well, sounded stellar at low volumes through a silverface princeton.

    Really? Hmm... I guess being the only guitar play in a band has it's advantages sometimes :D

    I really liked it when I was using it. I'm more of a blackface/classic Marshall kind of guy for cleans and OD respectively, so I didn't hold on to that pedal for too long, but it sounded great for what it was.

    I've got the original handwired Clark Gainster and it is an amazing pedal by all means...

    I actually like the Tech 21 Blonde from their Character series. Nice price, too.

    I had the Barber/Clark gainster for awhile and it was ok but, the ghetto stomp I have now is better IMO. I use it with a kt66/jtm45 and it's tweed for sure.

    This is what the Greer Ghetto Stomp is supposed to do, I believe.

    I like this pedal alot.... Does clean very well...as well as one of the best Overdrive options I've heard.

    Ghetto Stomp is very cool, but it is a bit more of a challenge to dial in than something like the Gainster. The Ghetto is very touch sensitive, like an amp, but it requires some dedicated tweaking of your amp to reach its potential.
    The Gainster is probably the closest to sounding exactly like my Clark Beaufort. I just bought a handwired Gainster in the emporium, so I'll soon know if there is a sonic difference between the Clark/Barber version and the original, big, hw version.

    Another vote for the Gainster. I've got the Barber manufactured version. One of my favorite drive pedals. It doesn't just doe Tweed - it excells at Clean Boost and great OD to augment your tone. But, set right - Tweed it does for sure! Better than most other pedals I've tried!

    The website says this is a blackface pedal, not tweed. It look interesting pedal. I might have to give it a try.

    The two I've owned and liked best were the HBOD and Liquid Sunshine.

    Oh - and the Crazy Horse!
