Would using one or more compression pedals make tone smoother while having gain turned back? But still make legato/tapping ring out or be effortless.

I'm not sure I'm explaining this right. Really I want more clarity but if I turn the gain down, it'll make my legato/tapping not as strong and lack sustain.

yeah that should work. that's one of the few instances where you really much need a compressor if you're playing with a dirty tone- getting to use less gain so it's clearer-sounding (or just less distorted because that's the tone that's needed for the piece in question), but without losing your sustain and compression etc.

EDIT: since you already have an 808 it might be worth trying it as a boost with the gain on the amp turned down in case you get enough compression that way. You've probably tried that already, though.

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 bought a Wampler Ego Compressor today. Until today, I had never heard of Wampler so I was a bit skeptical. I like what this has done for my sound however.

i played one of those and they are pretty awesome, with the blend knob (or whatever they call it) it worked very well.

i am going diamond though as far as i know at the moment.
