Hmm... a Marshall MG?

Perhaps try some earmuffs. Should cut down on the harshness of the sound. At the very least, it might keep you from going deaf. I hear Electroharmonix has a pretty good one you could buy...

The Electro-Harmonix Earmuff! Saving MG-users' hearing since...well, since right now.

though all of these "LOL MUFF" responses are useless and unfunny, it's difficult to come up with a sensible answer to this thread.

The different muffs are different things. None of which will improve your tone. You don't use pedals to improve your tone, you use pedals to change your tone. There's a difference between "change" and "improvement". And since we don't know what you're trying to change about your tone, we don't know which muff to suggest.

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp

My "LOL MUFF" response was creative at least...

Well some pedals will improve tone, such as an EQ pedal or a noise suppressor. But seriously TS, the main problem with your tone is probably the amp and I doubt a pedal is going to fix it.

yeah - well i did defend everyone who responded like that by saying there's not really anything more useful to add

Although i wish they would make earmuffs that simply block out bad tones but let good tones through un-compromised. Unfortunately i think it's physically impossible

You do realize that back in the 70s and 80s there was more than one style of music, right? You need to be more specific with what sound you want. I still stand by getting a new amp before spending money on effects.

70's minimalist music uses a lot of anlogue tape loops, so you may want to get an analogue delay or echo.


...what?
#15
vintage 70's 80's metal, more along the lines of black sabbath to iron maiden... basically everything in between

as for the amp, what would you recommend?

Depends on how much you're willing to spend, most likely a Roland Cube or Peavey Vyper.
