Not as much as I'd like I haven't got to try out a dominator , a tripple wreck, or dirty bomb but as some one with a 1 channel amp that's stuck in the early seventies with almost no gain and owned many sub par amps. In my expierence its easier to let the amp take care of the eq if possible, also don't dime the gain on the pedal it doesn't sound good on an amp its sure as hell not going to sound good on a pedal. Lastly distortion pedals tend to make unwanted noise so some kind of suppressor :cough: isp decimator :cough: is essential, even if you switch to an all tube rig you can still use it its a solid investment because amps hum.

I have a question: If I put a distortion or an overdrive pedal in front of a tube amp, is it like I have a solid state preamplifier?

The metal muff is 'meh' and other than that, the common names that are thrown about are going for more than 100.

I've found a few pedals that I actually like. The Mesa pedal (can't remember which one is the gainiest atm), Wampler Triple Wreck, Suhr Riot and Okko Dominator are all pedals that I like, but there's a common issue. They're all closer to 200 than 100. During my searches I came across some schematics for the Wampler, okko and suhr and while they're beyond my skill atm, they're not ridiculously complex.

So I've bought a simple fizz kit so I can get a bit of practice and then I'll be attempting one of the above if I feel up to it.

Has anyone else got recommendations for high gain distortion pedals for me to check out?

Sorry if it's already been mentioned, but barber dirty bomb, or one of the blackstar ht pedals.

There is no 'JVM 800' and your 'question' is nonsense. This whole thread is nonsense.

I think he wanted to write JCM 800. Anyway, I believe that if someone wants to experiment with his/her sound he must have a good modeller. I was thinking a lot about Laney Prism.

Guys, this isn't 9gag or 4chan or whatever it is the kids are using these days. Please don't post random memes or song lyrics or whatever.

This forum is for pointed discussion, not dumping whatever vaguely guitar-related thing comes into your head at any given moment.

I don't mean any rudeness - this just isn't the place for that stuff.
