I want to get a lot of gain from my terror, van Halen and metal kind of stuff. I've been looking at the mxr boost but it's a bit expensive to take a chance on. Anyone got any ideas?
PM badgerific he builds pedals, built me a Zvex SHO clone which i'm proper made up with, does the job perfectly
Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.
I play an orange th30 and the mxr boost into thAt is pretty sweet. You could always try an overdrive pedal with the gain down and the vol maxed. That sounds cool
Well, it won't sound exactly like Van Halen or your typical metal tone on the TT anyway, but if you're on a budget, Ibanez TS-9, Boss SD-1, Digitech Bad Monkey, or for slightly more money the Hardwire CM-2 OD.
Fender American Special HSS Stratocaster
Ibanez 1987 Roadstar II Deluxe
Yamaha THR10X
Marshall JCM900 SL-X
Ibanez WD-7 Weeping Demon Wah
TC Electronic Polytune
Seymour Duncan Tweakfuzz

Any tube screamer style pedal should do.


or a timmy/bluesbreaker or similar if a ts-style pedal is too middy with the TT.

But yeah for those type of tones i'd rather use an od than a clean boost.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

The mxr micro amp is another good option to check out. In front of the amp it will add gain without coloring the tone.
i have the dual terror, i use a timmy to do the boosting. check out toyroom fx Greeny23 (Tim) built mine. exceptionally good workmanship.
