Can someone recommend me a pedal for John Mayers lead tone? I'm going to be using a Ampeg v4 or something in the family of. See below for link.

It sounds like an overdrive to me, or should I just crank the amp on Fender settings.


Thanks in advance!

Try and find an unmodded TS10 if you can, that's the exact Tubescreamer he uses. You can get them cheap on eBay.

Although you are right, it won't give him Mayer's sound.

TS: get a Dumble-style pedal like
Hermida Zendrive or Mosferatu
Jetter Gain Stage Gold
Barber Tone Press
and more.

You can get a Dumble head for less than a small house.

Check out the Tanabe Dumkudo pedal, it's got 3 modes: Dumble, Smoother Dumble and lite Marshall. it's a Zendrive clone that's a little more versatile

John Mayer thread has a link asking about Dumble style pedals, the Zendrive to me sounded very John Mayer (I believe it was that which was shaping a lot of the tone in the video).
