Hi - because I still need cleans, I want to set my amp to the edge of breakup and then roll back a teeny bit for cleans, but I still need a pedal then to get some medium-gain dirt for riffs etc.

What pedals do you recommend that'll work well? I have my eyes on the Xotic Effects AC Booster and Wampler Plexidrive, and got offered a Providence stampede as well. I am going through a 2x12 with celestion V30's and have a Fender American Deluxe HSS Strat, but prefer to stick to my neck pick-up for the tone.

Thanks.

I'd say an EHX Soul Food will do you well. Though if you wanted cleans... I'm not quite sure why you picked an Orange amp. An LPB-1 might work as well.

I don't want crystal cleans, I am okay with clean tone I get by rolling back a bit

I use a Marshall Guvnor or DOD YJM 308 on my Tiny Terror for when I need more distortion, Budda Zenman has worked great as well, on that one I have an extra boost if needed for more saturation


Will check out the Zenman thanks.

Any other suggestions?

That makes sense.

You could also check out tubescreamers, though most will boost your mids more.

I would look into a zendrive. My dual terror loves it. I was disappointed in the soul food. But for the money it is pretty good. I run the zendrive for mid/low gain and an ocd for heavier gain on the dual terror. It works great overall.
