analog delay so I don't have to listen to that silly Fender boinging spring effect.
My MXR Micro Amp is on 100% of the time. Just one knob, always on.
I don't actually know what exactly it does to my tone, but I love the sound of it. It makes it seem like my amp is just on the edge of breakup, but not broken up yet. It pushes my fuzz and distortion pedals really nicely. I think it might compress my signal the slightest amount, and it adds a tiny sparkle. Whatever it's doing, I don't want it to stop! My bandmate thinks it's stupid because it "doesn't do anything fun", but I think it's easily my best pedal, and most used.
Ditto. '70 Bassman. DS-1 when I want to take it up a notch (or more).
My amp, an Ethos preamp/OD. I like to think MY tone has more to do with my guitar than any other gear.
Joyo American Sound. with or without an amp.
This. It’s not a pedal but my NY Blues tone capsule which is installed on my Roland BC Artist. I’m with the camp that gets its base tone from the amp rather than from analog or DSP pedals. In my view, pedals should simply add something to an already great tone and not be the source of tone for a clean amp (which becomes a glorified PA for your guitar).
White Horse certainly is one my top pedals, MOSFET preamp, bass filter and optical sustainer all in one.
My EHX 2ube is really my #1, just use it as a 1in/2out tube boost with a couple of rca cleartop 12au7 in it feeding a pair of amps. It really does that Keef breakup on up to Blackmore crunch. To big and power hungry for most board users but works for my home playing, especially with wet/dry amps. I can dial up a bit more crunch on dry side with driving wet side to hard.
Run that White Horse into that real tube splitter and damnnnn, endless sustain, not really dirty, unless of course you bear down on fretboard, then it just snarls at you then pulls back to edge of clean sustain.
I can't claim to have "a tone" but I do like the way my amp sounds (Dr Z Maz 18 Jr) without pedals. If I use pedals (I'm a learner / home player only) I like my Keeley Compressor+ and the tremolo, chorus and delay pedals I have.
Well... those cannot compare to the vintages Boss TU2
Actually I use one!!
My amp, Blackface 65 PRRI. Just sounds like an amp should.
Amptweaker Tight Drive Jr.
My guitar to amp tone is a very clean base, with high headroom ”blackface’ish” sounding. Its enough to be happy with.
But i do like that i can add any (good quality and well made) preamp or amp in a box type of pedal, without changing my amp.
Currently the Tight Drive Jr is my sound, can go from plexi sounding to neutral to TS into a breaking up amp type of sounds. Gives me alot of options and sounds great into a clean amp.
My BOSS CS-3 Compressor Sustainer.
Love this pedal (blue one, on the middle-right in my pedal assembly).
My Neo Ventilator is my thing. I’ve been wild about the OD Leslie sound for 40 years. Luckily, some guy in Melbourne decided to sell his Ventilator cheap. They’re about $1000 here! Check out That Pedal Show Leslie episode on YouTube.
Good man. I’ve been using compressors since the 70s but people told me that I was crazy. Finally, people are starting to understand compressors, transparent OD, and lowish powered amps.
I'm not a big pedal guy, but I occasionally break out the Boss SD1 and the MXR phase 95 on the most subtle setting possible. Just fattens things up a little.
Whichever one I bought yesterday...
