i found my avt didn't really like being boosted, the sound could cut out etc.

a tubescreamer didn't seem to be just so bad, so i dunno, maybe the tonerider version?

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.

If you don't want a gainy boost, you may just want to get an EQ pedal. The MXR 10-band has controls for gain and level in addition to the frequency sliders. I want to say the MXR is around $115 or so but I'm not positive. If you don't want to spend that much, Danelectro makes a pedal called the Fish N' Chips, which is around $30. It's plastic, so it's not the toughest, but it's a great little EQ pedal from what I've heard.

EDIT: v Or this. Essentially the same thing.

If all he really wants is a solo boost, just plug in and show him that the EQ does the job. If he still doesn't want it, then it just seems like he wants an OD just for the sake of having an OD

Boosts will typically give you more gain and make the amp tighter, neither of which is a problem with the AVT to begin with.

Put an EQ pedal or at least a volume pedal in the loop.

Ideally, id like him to get a new amp... :P.
tonerider Ts, okay ill check that out.
is that the red american overdirve ?
we could probably stretch the budget, 50 was just a rough un!


yeah, that's the one

you could up the budget, though if it is (as is alleged) a true bypass tubescreamer clone, not sure there's much point, especially if he's hanging onto the avt. I mean the tonerider stuff seems to be made pretty well, and as you say, changing the amp is pretty much a necessity, there's no point in blowing the budget on a boutique pedal (which mightn't be any better) when he needs a new amp.

volume, eq or boost in the loop, as several other people have suggested, might be a better idea, too.
