my crate in my sig is very close to what tone i want

i think i might get a new OD pedal in februrary when my mom gets income tax along with a flanger and phase shifter and mabye a chorus or delay or something but right now im using a Boss SD-1 and it has to much feedback but has some pretty good tone to it

just wondering if anyone can point me to a better OD or mabye a compressor to get rid of excess noise

Compressors don't get rid of noise, they add noise when the lower volume notes are boosted, plus you won't really hear any difference except when you use it with a clean tone. Get a noise gate, I use and would recommend the ISP decimator to cut down on your noise. If you stick one in your fx loop as well as the front of your amp, you get double-gating which kills pretty much all your excess noise but you have to dial in carefully to stop your sustain from going.

Anyway, try a chorus with your dirty sound for a hair metal tone!

Probably not then but a gate in front of the amp works fine for getting rid of noise for stage use. I think double gating is used more in recording scenarios to get rid of the hiss from valve amps...

Mick Mars of Motley Crue mixes in a good bit of reverb and a little slap delay to thicken up his sound

If you can't get the tone with what you have, just get a custom made Marshall with knobs that all go to eleven

yeah live you only really need one gate in the end of your input chain. i still get a little buzz from the eq and delay in the loop, but i wanted the gate to get rid of feedback and screeching. If you double gate work with the settings to be sure your getting good sustain
