    Looking for an OD pedal with a boost.

    Thanks Bill. I'm still doing some research and I have a question about the Patheon pedal. Regarding the channel select switch: I see how you can go from 1 into 2 or 2 into 1. Is there a way on this pedal (or on other Wampler pedals with the same switch) where lets say, you're using channel A...

    S2 Vela ergonomics question

    I have a Vela semi and an Epiphone SG. When sitting with the Vela (with the guitar on my right leg) it's shifted way to the right making access to the upper frets difficult. When rested on my left leg it's much better. Playing the Vela while standing is pretty comfortable but things are still...

    String Gauge - Let's Talk!

    Oh, I know but that's what we do around here and it's all good! Speaking of skill level and tone, I got a laugh from this. In an interview with Ritchie Blackmore he said "parents will tell me their son wants to learn guitar. Should I get him a Strat and a Marshall amp?" Blackmore said "best of...

    String Gauge - Let's Talk!

    There is some truth to that. Back in '94 through '96 I was playing bass in a weekend cover band. Our rhythm guitar player had a Les Paul and a Marshall half stack. Wonderful, sweet man who'd do anything for anybody. His family life wasn't the best and playing guitar was the one source that...

    Sounds like other folks too who just go by instinct. "Don't know why I went to that chord.....I just did!!!"

    String Gauge - Let's Talk!

    For bass, Elixers 45-105. They last a long time. For guitar it's Ernie's 10-46. But I might switch to 9's on one of my guitars to try and help with my vibrato which in my opinion is pretty lame. It's gotten a bit better lately but it's another of the many things I struggle with due to my aging...

    Looking for an OD pedal with a boost.

    I was checking this very pedal out this morning on YouTube. A very good possibility. Never heard of Andy Wood until today. What a monster player!

    Just gave this a listen. Very versatile pedal pedal for sure with lots of possibilities. Thanks!

    Looking for an OD pedal with a boost.

    That is cool! Seems like that's an "icing on the cake" pedal. You know, you got your tone sounding great, you love it and then someone says "Yeah, it sounds good. Now try this son and hold on!" Thanks.

    Looking for an OD pedal with a boost.

    Offhand, the boost would be before. I envision getting a good, solid overdrive sound for a rhythm and then boosting that for a lead. Some of the pedals that I saw on YouTube have some nice options on them. I thought "why not just get a regular old boost pedal and put that before my Xotic BB...

    Looking for an OD pedal with a boost.

    Thanks again! I'll be checking that out as well. Much appreciated. Bottom line and maybe this will help. If someone handed me a pedal and said "it has that crunch on the bottom and that crisp high end with no fizz....but it doesn't sound like VH II" I'd said "GREAT! Let me try it!"

    Looking for an OD pedal with a boost.

    Couldn't agree more. The amp model I favor is the Soldano Clean with a 2X12 G12H IR. I like it because it's a good, strong, robust kinda clean sound. Has good strength in the highs of which I like very much. Not at all thin sounding. I get compliments with it all the time at church. It's very...

    Looking for an OD pedal with a boost.

    The other day I plugged my Xotic BB preamp pedal into my Pod Go and was surprised at how good it sounds. Good driving sound with tight bass and a high end that's crisp but not fizzy. Plenty of bass on tap as well. I'd really like to find the right "two in one" pedal where one side would be the...
