Tweaking a Zoom G2... Bad Monkey fan
My favourite overdrive pedal at the moment is the Digitech Bad Monkey, so I was trying to find a setting in my handy little Zoom G2 pedal to duplicate it. I'd previously been taking both on stage - the Zoom for chorus, delay, phaser, wah, etc, and the Monkey for overdrive because I could find nothing in the Zoom that came close. Finally at home, switching backwards and forwards, I reckoned I'd found something - the modelled 'Marshall Guvnor' pedal, plus some added bottom end to compensate for the low-end loss. When I got onstage that night (Tele plus little solid-state amp) I hit the button and came up with one of the best overdrive tones I've ever had! Might still need a bit of tweaking but it's great. Funny thing is, I actually bought the Marshall Guvnor pedal years ago when it first came out and didn't like it! You never know when you're going to find something new in there...
