(One acoustic, pedal steel, upright bass, drums and me on the Strat). The tones I was getting with the compressor pedal and the Jr were close to illegal. Am going to have to do that again!
I play in that same exact instrument configuration in a classic country band, and my Tele> small pedal board (with Tuner/OD/slapback delay)> 1999 Blondie Blues Jr. has worked great for me as we dont't play very loudly (although we will ramp up for "Folsom Prison", and some Elvis songs...) I am basically alone to the left of the drummer, lead singer on acoustic in the middle, and bass/ steel gtr on the drummer's other side- The BJ rules!
Tele/Tex-Mex Strat/Dano '56 U2>MHP "Stubble Trouble" FUZZ/MHP "perfected" GFS Brownie Classic/Barber Direct Drive/Blues Driver> MORE PEDALS
> '68 Deluxe Reverb or blonde Blues Jr. Rock On!
