Menatone, MI & Diesel are my current favs.
Me too. What I like best about it is the sound of course. But also that the controls are simple, the cleanup is great with guitar vol.
I never owned a Marshall, but have heard them live and recorded my whole life and to me it gets that sound. Reportedly the gain control will as you increase it give different flavors of Marshall amps, JTM and Plexi, etc. obviously I’m no expert on if it really is getting those variations, but man...I fell in love with it on first time playing it.
It is a great contrast to my Zendrive also.
Catalinbread's DLS III
JRAD The Majestic, just killer sounding.
That with volume and gain maxed into an AC30 were some off the best tones I ever had.
For Marshall-type tones, the Bogner Ecstasy Red gets my vote.
In Fender-land, my favourite is the sadly-discontinued Wampler Tweed ‘57. It’s a second channel for my Fender Princeton.
How does the Joyo fender one sound for clean? Thanks!
Best sounding amp in a a box!
I played through a rebuilt Fender Bandmaster for years, and there is not a solid state pedal or plug-in that I have heard that sounds like a clean Fender tube amplifier. I have tried a bunch. Ethos. Joyo. SansAmp. UA. Janglebox. I burned through a lot of cash chasing the sound.
You can get 90% there with tube preamps. It is worth a little cash for the ringing bell harmonic distortion & tube compression. I use a Hughes & Kettner Tubeman with an EHX Black Finger (tube version) and I am very satisfied. Oddly, I have to run BOTH pedals to get the sound. I am not certain why, but just the H&K or EHX alone don't quite do it.
This is how I would rank the ones I have tried:
Mad Professor Twimble Overdrive
Bogner Ecstasy Red
Mad Professor Loud and Proud
Catalinbread Sabbra Cadabra
It does a great clean tone, but I don't like the cab sim thru the front of the amp, I guess I could try it in the loop
I agree, I just picked up the BE-OD and it is amazing. I am running it through the clean and fat channels of a Mesa mk5 35. I can pretty much duplicate the same tones as the built in C and MK4 with this pedal in the clean and/or fat channel. Then I can open it up even more or slow it down with the gain and tight controls. It is simply is an amazing pedal. With a good clean you can have yourself a Mesa and modified Marshall amp for 200 bucks, or 110 used as I did.
Currently I'm GASsing for a Wampler Triple Wreck.
