    That's a tough one, to me this is more or less a classic '70s overdriven marshall tone (although I have no idea what amp was used). Plus, I'll assume you're not overdriving your amp's power tubes or using celestion type speakers in a sealed enclosure, which may help come closer to this tone.

    First off, you'll need a high gain pedal to get that much distortion. Most high gain pedals sound buzzy and thin when used in a totally clean amp, so the classic lead boost type pedals (like the boss DS-1) won't fly IMHO, although it would probably work well if you had the overdriven Marshall.

    I'm thinking some of the pedals that are somewhere between pedals and preamps. I have the H&K tubefactor, which can reach the thickness and distortion of the clip, but I think it's a little too modern sounding for this tone. I have a lot of other pedals, low gain and high, but none I can recommend into a totally clean amp to come even close. I've never tried the Tonebone stuff, but from what I've read, they may be a good choice ... anyone?

    I think that's a Komet clip, right? I don't know if any OD pedal through a clean Fender amp will give you that sound.

    Also, it sounds to me like a lot of speaker texture is in the clip too - maybe M25's or H30's.Speaker texture and break-up is another thing difficult to replicate with a pedal.

    The Trainwreck amp that the clip was played on has a lot to do with that sound and sustain.

    My choice for that tone through a Fender BF Pro would definitely be a BJFE Dyna Red and a humbucker guitar!! :dude :RoCkIn

    I was wondering what kind of guitar was used for those clips.

    Me, I mainly go between a G&L S-500 and a PRS CU24 loaded with a Duncan 59n and Custom 5 in the bridge. The Eternity just SANG with that C5!

    -1 ... I'm listening to the original clip and listening to the Eternity clips and thinking, nope! Nice tone, but to me as different as a TS-9 to a DS-1.

    Actually, what I meant was I nail that original clips sound with my E and my Les Paul. Have no idea what was used on the lovepedal's soundbites ... I didn't even listen to them

    this is an old clip i found made by bill chapin of chapin guitars. all i remember is that he told me is was played at just above bedroom volume.
    and yes the kar krash will do laundry, but only once then it is ruined, so
    it is best that you use it for guitar tones.
