With so many TS-style, TS clones and modded TS pedals on the market....what are you using?
Keeley Flexi 4x2
heaven forbid a stock ts808
LOL. I use a stock TS-9 here, but have been eyeing the Maxon, just for the true bypass...
i must have tried at least a dozen
sold em all
just not my style... i've got a dedicated midbooster now for the "cutting through" effect, i'm gonna stick with that.
Your average TS9 reissue.
I am an SD-1 kind of guy. Does that count?
MJM Blues Devil
A quick sidebar:
I am looking for a new overdrive and have been thinking Tube Screamer.
I only get to turn my amp up loud once and a while, so is it worth to get a tube screamer on a 30w amp that I rarely get up loud enough to scream?
If not, what would give me a nice TS-esqe OD at lower and higher volumes?
Maxon modded by some guy on ebay -For the classic tone
Timmy- more open works great as a boost or for low gain
Xotic BB preamp- good for thicker higher gain sound
Maxon OD9 !
But there's a Padalworx Tejas down the street that I'm really GASsing for!
Jekyll side of the Jekyll & Hyde pedal. It is a very good interpretation of the original TS808, but with more volume and bass. This pedal works great after heavier distortions to give them something else for solos. It also works great for Led Zep type of tones.
I have just acquired a Hardwire CM-2 Tube Overdrive, and in my opinion, it is better than the Jekyll. It sounds more harmonically rich, and with its two difference voicings (Classic and Modified) you really get many more possibilities.
I like the Maxon 820 and the Reverend Drivetrain 2.
Keeley TS808 Mod Plus True Bypass with Vintage '82 JRC4558 chip. I love that thing.
Fulltone Fulldrive 2 Mosfet. I run it on the vintage mode with the volume at 2 o'clock, tone at 2 or 3 o'clock, overdrive at about 9 o'clock, and boost (if I ever use it) at around noon. Sounds wonderful through my AC15.
MJM Blues Devil is a great 808 tone
Analogman Silver mod and Ashbass mod in whisper mode.
