Was just wondering
Currently,I step on a delay and a low gain od/boost...
Durham Electronics SexDrive!
dunlop wah - best wah ever (imho)
lovepedal eternity or cot red
delay - dd-3 as well
the sex drive...interesting....i heard its a lovely boost....does it fatten things up??how does it compare to the mucho boosto...:AOK
hehe yea i forgot i step on my budda as well...(anyone ever wonder why these guys didnt get sued for putting the buddha on something we stamp on)
Right now I'm only using the OCD.
Sid, What is your low gain od/boost?
Lovin' the China Cot for solo's...although may change once the Lo Driver hits the board
Haven't played the mucho boosto, but the sexdrive is about as clear a boost as they come. And dang it gets loud if you want it. Keeps high end detail intact, and the compression hi/lo switch is a handy tone variance. The gain knob is useful too to dial in a little grit on the clean boost if you like. Between the two you can find sweet spots anywhere. I bought one as an impulse buy a few months back here on the emporiums and it's worked so well with every amp that I've played. Those who have heard my pedal will agree!
.......................and my Vox 847 Wah.
blue: i use a skreddy screwdriver(smokey'd) for my rhythm and step on my Lovepedal Lo driver for solos....was wondering what to do for really high gain...stack these two and then add a clean boost at the front?:RoCkIn
A Voodoo-1 for compressed clean to a little hair.
Cot 50 for a little more hair and more dynamic and bright sound.
Old dual board SD-9 for distortion.
I`m currently also playing around a lot with the White Dragon.
More infinate sustain it`s either Voodoo or Cot into the SD-9 and if I want an even more wild lead sound I step on the Chorus or Vibe too.
My rhythm sound is my old small-box Rat, which I run with the gain very low, thinking of adding another OD (Timmy?) to the board, so I could have two different rhythm sounds and run the Rat a bit hotter... For solos I stack the Rat with the new E-H Little Big Muff, also with the gain down, but volume up.
Depends on how much gear I've brought. If it's my small rig, I use an Eternity pedal through a Route 66. If it's my full rig, it's an A/B switch routing my signal to a Fuchs ODS50 with a H&K Replex in the effects loop.
My main rhythm sound is Timmy, Screwdriver or both stacked. The stacked sound works well for some leads too. If I need more I kick in the Top Fuel or the Mayo.
I stomp on a Nick Greer Sonic Boost, excellent!
it was an Eq pedal set for a nice +10db (around that) But i got round to finishing my clean booster which cleaned the floor with it. I set it on 1 o'clock and thats two much most of the time with a OD and a little delay.
Similar to Jero's Sonic Boom, I step on a Nick Greer Royal Fromage at the end of the chain.
I use my Hot Cake if I'm using one amp (Dr. Z 6545) or I hit my headswitcher to give me the overdrive channel of my Fuchs ODS20 when I am using both amps.
interesting stuff...am thinking of gettin a liquid sunshine to compliment my screwdriver...jfety goodness
This is my never ending problem! I have a base sound with my amp that I like for rhythm playing, but for leads (and a couple of heavier songs) where I need more volume and sustain, I'm always looking. I alternate between these 3 right now:
TC Jauernig Gristle King: This gets the most use and I'll probably settle on this once and for all.
MI Audio Tubezone: Nice gain, a bit noisy for me though.
coreybox's Jalapeno Boost: HUGE output and sort of a fuzzy singing sustain. I'll probably settle on a live rig based around this one and the Gristle King.
I usually use my RC Booster, and often times I am using a Budda Wah. Though I just picked up a dd-3 which could get added to the mix.
