Fulltone Mosfet Fulldrive with strat ?

Hi guys ! I have a question. Does anyone now how a single coil strat is going to sound through a solid state amp (red knob princeton ) with this thing? I've been looking for perfect drive for me for about a year, and it seems that I really found what I'm looking for, but most of demos I heard was on tube amps. Does anyone has experience with this Fulltone's beast, single coil guitar and solid state amp ? Thanks in advance for replies !

In my experience Overdrives+Solid State amps sound like a bag of dicks in a dryer.

i agree maybe getting a good distortion pedal if you want some distortion without pushing the solid state parts their nasty distortion

but overdrives and boosts dont often do much for transistors

Actually, overdrive pedals are made to emulate tube amp circuit overdrive, so some of them should sound fairly nice with solid state.

it's true that overdrives were originally meant to give you a tube amp overdriving sound. if you use the pedal through the clean channel it will give you an overdriven sound. more often than not that isn't what players are going for. when used to overdrive an already distorted signal in a SS amp the results are often crappy and not hwat was wanted.

agree get a distortion pedal and run it throug the clean channel for better results.

Stop being a tube snob. Overdrive pedals work just fine with SS. Booster pedals do not.
If TS's gonna play blues, he better gets overdrive pedal.
For everything harder, distortion it is.

nothing to do with being a tube snob at all. been playir a lot of years and have had both tube and solid amps. owned many overdrives over the years and sure if you want a basic blues sound then sure they work fine with SS anyth past that and the results start going down hill fast. they just don't give you that singing sustain that many are after with SS amps.

What you really need, is a new amp.

Sorry, had to get that in there. I don't like the sound of an overdiven dirty channel on SS amps, if you want high gain, get a distortion, if you don't, overdrive.
