    as far as I know, jack white uses a stock NYC reissue big muff that's been re-housed in a hammond enclosure. Analog Mike can give you details.

    My Treble Booster does a great job of *simulating* the cranked up Twin/Silvertone amps. I'd recommend a big muff style fuzz to nail the leads, as opposed to a fuzzface fuzz. As far as fuzz, where a silicon fuzzface sounds trebley, and a Germanium fuzzface sounds bassy, a big muff will sound full, but maybe a little light in the mids.

    Any boutique Muff-types that you think are especially good for White Stripeish tones?

    Just get a Big Muff...no point in trying other things that somebody says might get you close when you can nail it with a Big Muff...

    As for the OD tones, thats a cranked Silvertone and i've never found another amp that sounds like that except another cranked Silvertone...sorry.
