    I think xotic BB was designed for this.

    I tried one (still have it). To me the BB sounds better pushing something that is already overdriven. The BB all on it's own is too smooth, dark and compressed for me.
    I'd like to run the Marshall combo cleanish to have a 2 channel type of setup for gigging.

    Menatone Blue Collar will do it.

    I use the OCD for my rythmn rock tones with both Strat and Les Paul and use BB for my lead tones over OCD and an AC over the OCD for Les Paul.......Covers alot of ground for 70's.......I would get the Pinnacle for 80's.....
