The Boss Blues Driver is pretty good for Classic stuff. Gives you a nice, creamy overdrive when you dial it in right.

Mod it or it sucks...

But just search on youtube for some good boutique effects, and you'll find one you like someday!

I sincerely hope one day you look back at this post and realize how ignorant you're being about the concept of getting high.

totally depends on what amp and guitar you are using. the best classic rock sound comes from amp distortion.

Unless you're playing through a Squier SP-10 or some acoustic amp I'm not sure how you couldn't achieve an ACDC tone, to some extent. It's like the easiest rock tone to achieve.
Gear:

Fender Strat
PRS SE Custom 24

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I vote for the Rothwell Hellbender, but that's just my two cents.

pretty shit gear but ahh well
i've got the epiphone les paul custom and roland 80x cube + i have the boss me- 70 at the moment and i have some top tones out of that just looking into getting some seperate pedals Xx
#13
In all honesty if you want classic rock tones your better off investing in a tube amp - the Cube you have isn't a bad amp but even with pedals you're never going to replicate the depth of tone and dynamics of a tube amp and that's most likely what's missing in the sound you're currently getting.

+1, that's what i'd have thought.

it's debatable if pedals (certainly under the £100 mark) will do classic rock any better than the cube's amp models...

Classic rock tones are just cranked amp distortion. No need for a pedal for that kind of stuff. Am I the only one that thinks pedals are fun, but best avoided if possible ?

No. You're 100% right imo. Even with an FX Loop I find the more pedals you have the more it alters your "true" tone that you get from plugging guitar straight into amp.

Save for a tube amp. Pedals won't get anywhere close. I personally hate most solid state distortion pedals.

Tube Amp plus a good overdrive pedal to help push the tubes to naturally break up.

push the tubes naturally? Is this a l'oreal advert?

Getting a perfect AC/DC tone is harder than you think. I have gotten very close to the "brown sound", AFD, but never have been able to get Malcolm's tone. Part of his tone is hitting the strings very hard, a GRETCH, and a clean Marshall (if only more people thought that way). Angus's is a bit easier, that's just the usual Gibson/Marshall combo. And how simple it is to play like him. He's overrated, IMO. Malcolm is what makes AC/DC have such a big sound.
