Cranking a tube amp! I'm pretty sure Hendrix mainly used Marshall but might have to google that one

Probably some vintage Marshall, power amp gain way up. Single coils help a lot in getting that chimey sound.

K, but is there away to get that sort of tone from a pedal without a tube amp?


No, but you can probably get close with a cheap tube amp.

Have a look at a few overdrive pedals, use a low setting to just break up the clean channel of an amp

Ah thanks guys, so what overdrive pedals would work for just breaking it up on a low setting?

an overdrive thru a solid state amp won't get you that sound. that is power section breakup and solid states just plain can't do that. even with a tube amp it has to be cranked up to the point where that occurs. with a tube amp you can crank the volume all the way up and use your gain knob as a master volume this will get you closer at volume levels that won't invite a police raid.
