Right now im playing a Peavey Valveking 112 with a Fender MIM Strat. Can someone reccomend pedals, or anything that would give me a good blues tone? Thanks

You might want an attenuator, like a THD Hotplate. This will allow you to get power amp overdrive at lower volumes, and it's that kind of distortion that OD pedals are built to emulate.

No need for the attenuator I think. He could just take the Texture switch and switch all the way to full Class A and turn up the volume a bit. ValveKings tend to break up earlier that way.

I have one. I've been messing with it lately.

Is blues one of several genres you play, or do you play it primarily/plan to get into it alot more? If so, you might want to look into power tubes with earlier breakup...

Otherwise an EQ and speaker swap are always beneficial to the Valveking no matter what genres you play.

Define 'good' and 'blues'.

Are you playing pussy **** like John Mayer, elevator **** like Robben Ford, or real **** like Johnny Shines?

Man, no matter how much you hate John Mayer (and I agree that he's not a bluesman or anything like that) you can't deny that he's got good tone.

Pfffft, Robben Ford was in that list and you say John Mayer's the one with undeniably good tone?
