So basically, i love the clean channel, and love the dirt on my rockerverb, but i've been thinking about getting an OD to use on the clean channel to get a sort of "half gain" sound.

I love the sound of clean parts used with a bit of dirt, almost like using a marshall for cleans. I can get the sound pefectly on the amp by setting the gain around half on the dirty channel, but for live use I would need a pedal. Would an OD work for this, or should i look at something else?

This. Or just crank your own clean channel a bit if you can.

I could, but ive dimed the cleans before and it just gets a bit too harsh for my taste.

I don't understand the question that much. Overdrive/distortion pedals are to be ran through a clean channel, if you're using a solid state you're not supposed to put a distortion pedal on with the amp's channel distortion. Pedals tend to suck through SS amps anyway.

I didnt have anything planned out, and I didn't know **** about improvising, so it was like "OH SHI- SOLO TIME" so I kerry-kinged it.

The rockerverb is a tube head.

TS: Set the gain on the dirty channel low and use tubescreamer on that for higher gain sounds. Or, you could set the gain on the dirty channel where you want it and use the ts on the clean channel. Whichever you prefer, it should work either way.

and anyway yes, the od will be great for oding your clean channel for a bit of grit.

Read my sig, I have a full tube head.

In a nutshell, im looking to get a more dirty clean sound, almost like having another channel. Id run the OD on the clean channel, so I could get that slightly overdriven sound.

Just turn down your volume knob on the guitar to get less dirt.


It doesnt work when your running lots of gain. Plus, with a noise gate, even though i have an ISP, it takes that weak signal of the turned down input volume and kills the sustain.

Fulltone Fulldrive 2 > than everything else I've tried. You can get blems off their site for pretty cheap. All around a very good pedal with tons of versatility.
