So the manual says the pedal was designed to slam the Dirty Little Secret as the rangemaster was used to slam a saturated tube amp. So, if you can’t crank your amp, crank your overdrive pedal. Not having a DLS, I used an OCD. In the interest of brevity, I’ve only shown a sample with all three knobs dimed but the range and heat knobs can give you all kinds of different stuff. So this is an LP straight to the Viper, the OCD, then a VHT Special 6, volume at 2 out of 10, through a Celestion G12M greenback, 8 ohms. My iPad is on a tripod right up against the speaker, recording. Ya, there’s a little noise, but these excel at noisy songs so waddya expect.
