So I have an American Standard Strat, all single coils, just bought it this year, and a Vox Valvetronix amp, And I was wondering if anybody could give me some advice on getting a nice chunky rock n roll sound from it without replacing the pickups, althoug I plan on doing that. All the sounds i've come out with have been nice but not exactly what i'm looking for. So any help would be appreciated

Well what would you suggest for like a nice dirty rock tone? Marshall? I played a marshall today. liked the sound

You don't necessarily need a new amp to get a "chunky" rock sound.

I'd use the middle + bridge pickup or the neck + middle pickup, and a UK '80s or '70s model on the Valvetronix. Turn the mids up, and bass and treble to taste. If you're still not satisfied, then you could look into a new amp.

no need to change pickups on that.

turn up your volume and then
turn up your volume again and then
try the british or high gain amp models .

A signal booster like a Ehx LPB-1 would help.
