I am waiting on some new stuff for this thread to come soon from England.

I don't even pay attention to any of that shit anymore.

My Fenders (or my 335) + some Marshalls + maybe a few effects like a Big Muff or a little push, and my original Ibanez WH-10 wah = perfection.

Yeah, part of the reason is life takes over. I barely have the time to play anymore let alone keep up with amps and such. In high school I lived it, but now forget it. I recently sold so much stuff I had collecting dust in my parent's basement. Actually, I have been incredibly out of the loop in the music world all together. After college I can't tell you what new bands have popped up.

+1 on no time. My telecaster has a lot of dust on it now, and it's such a shame. frown.gif

but so it goes.

So today this is happening. Historically accurate hand wound PAF replicas:

So I bought a new guitar yesterday, an Ibanez RG3EXFM1, just to mess around on (and it was only $200 so I'm not breaking the bank). Normally I play Fender Strats and Teles through a Vox AC15 with a Fulltone Full-Drive 2 to get some dirt. The Ibanez sounds okay through this set up but I think I want to buy another overdrive or distortion pedal to get a tighter and more singing lead tone. Any suggestions? I don't really have much time right now to go out and spend hours testing out pedals so I thought that I might ask for a few recommendations to help the process along. Thanks for the input.

That is neat but the price of a mini rectifier is simply absurd for what you're getting.
post #730 of 4227
It's not really my style, but $1000 for a 25w, 2 channel, all tube head isn't too absurd.
post #731 of 4227
I mean, I view a mini rectifier as a simple jam at home amp for the scenario where you are leaving your main rig at your band's practice space or you're just a casual jammer at home. To fill that role I'd just buy a small peavey or something for a lot less money. I mean, shit, you can get a 6505 2x12 combo for the same cost.

It depends on what kind of music you play. Honestly Analog Man's Beano Boost is the only kind of boost pedal I would ever consider using. I don't really like overdrive pedals that color your guitar's sound too much. I like just running the amp very loud and distorted and using the guitars volume and tone knobs to go clean.

I've never played this, but maybe look into a Suhr Riot?

This has been my downfall. Used to be able to repeat back any spec of any piece of anything in guitar center. Now I'm lucky if I can strum a bit on the weekends.

Dream setup though is still a late 60's 335 through a vintage VoxAC30.

Classic combo! The new handwired AC30's are awesome.
