TLDR: I'm looking for a Marshall-like distortion with sustain from a pedal (and maybe a medium-gain overdrive?). Not metal or anything, just something that will blast and sing. I mostly play a Strat through a '65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue (Jensen P-12Q Alnico speaker), volume around 4.5. I can't crank it much more in my setting. For clean, shoegaze, and blues sounds, the amp is what I've always wanted, but I am having difficulty finding the dirty sounds I want. A good reference for what I'm searching for is the tone Noel Gallagher (and Paul Weller) uses a lot, like during the solos on Oasis' Don't Look Back In Anger and Champagne Supernova (live / studio). I know he did it then through Marshall and Orange stacks, but he's still doing the same thing now through a Blues Jr. - For almost a decade as a cash-strapped teen/20-something, I have played through a Boss GT-6 directly to the PA. This was convenient and fortunate, because I play mostly at church where stage volume is a concern, and I did not have the money for the amp I wanted. Now, I'm not cash-strapped and want to go to an amp+pedal chain setup. Individual pedals are almost all new to me, other than having watched hundreds of pedal demos. I've got a Snouse BlueLine, a little-known, wonderful Bluesbreaker-like overdrive that I'm using for an almost-always-on tone thickening tool with very low gain, but for medium overdrive or real distortion, I am still relying on a Peavey 5150-like patch from the GT-6. I picked up Dr. Scientist's The Elements, but in my limited attempts, it's been nothing but mush. What I've seen recommended elsewhere - MI Audio Crunch Box, ZVex Distortion, Wampler Pinnacle/Plexi-Drive/Sovereign, Riot Suhr (+Reloaded), Rat, Tone Bone Hot British, Catalinbread various, Bearfoot Model H. If you read any of that, thanks, and I'd love to hear you weigh in.
