I have Fender Super Reverb Reissue and I'm looking for a good overdrive/distortion pedal to put in front of it. I have an Ibanez TS-9, which I really love, but it's not enough gain. I need something versatile. I just bought a Pro Co Rat 2, but it's too "metallic" and thin sounding. I've been through many pedals and still haven't found the right one. I'm probably way too picky, but I'm looking for something that I can just stick with. I play mostly classic rock...Joe Walsh, The Raspberries, Jay Ferguson, Rick Derringer, The Eagles, CSN, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Cream, Jeff Beck, The Who, The Ventures. Right now, I'm looking at the Fulltone OCD and an MXR Distortion +...I know that was a very popular pedal in the 70's, but I'm open to any other suggestions. My main axe is a Gibson LP Standard.

Fulltone OCD gets my vote. Great medium gain pedal...does classic rock very well.

That clip sounds vaguely Marshall-like to me.

In general, when what you want to do is turn a Super or Twin into a boosted Plexi, the pedal of choice is the Tonebone Hot British (or Plexitone). I like the Fulltone OCD, but I think the Tonebone would be better in this case because of the amp you're using and and sounds you want.

It does. It's funny because he's actually using a Fender Super Six Reverb and a Sunn amp head.

Maybe it's primarily the Sunn. I don't really know what they sound like.

In any case I'd put the ToneBone at the top of my shopping list. The Soldano GTO is kind of cool too, but with some amps it seems to be noisy. They're hard to find too.

You're right....that is awesome!!!...But I don't know about it or the Tonebone...I had a Tonebone in the past and sold it to a friend because it was "too much" distortion for me. However, I do plan on getting a real Marshall Plexi or a JCM 800 in the future...so I don't know if they are the right pedals...maybe something that I can use with both the Super Reverb and the Marshall (to give it a boost)?

I'd like to throw in the Catalinbread SCOD. Great pedal.

+1, demos sound great


EDIT: sell the RAT2 and buy a vintage RAT, apparently they're much much better

+2.71828 for the scod. i dont own one yet, but its on my list of things to buy.

+6.282 the OCD is also really great, with a slightly marshally vibe to it on the HP mode. IMHO its a must to have on pretty much any pedal board (with the exceptions being metal and jazz). i have had mine for a few weeks and absolutely love it.

what about putting them both on and blend the sound together. This might get you some nice results too. I would try that before you go and buy a new pedal.

Catalinbread DLS sounds just about right for what you want.

The alternative could be the Catalinbread Silverkiss... but that's a hard-to-come-by pedal

Well, I just got the OCD the other day and I love it. LP mode sounds like an overdriven Fender and HP mode sounds like a Marshall!!! It's amazing!!! Just what I was looking for. Now I need to find the right settings...
