How would two overdrive pedals sound like when used together at the same time? Would you get like a sound as if you were using a dist. pedal or would you just get a really loud AC/DC sort of sound?

didnt SRV use two Ibanez Tubescreamers at once? hm, maybe he just has two on stage for something else.
#5
1 as overdrive and 1 as volume boost?

I think thats the story.

I don't really see the point, unless the OD pedal in question has a really nice breakup/overdriven sound- then you could use one as a boost and the other to provide the grit. I'd rather have an overdrive/boost pedal and a fuzz pedal to be honest, that'd give you far more options.

yeah dimebag used to talk about how he would chain like 4 ODs together to get the distortion he wanted, so if you want super high gain i guess it would work, youd have to do a lot of knob tweaking to get it to sound good though.

And also, tube screamewrs are relatively low gain, compared to most other ODs, whihc is why some people use more than one.

the sound u get depends on the pedals and amp. but if u google something like "layering OD pedals," ull find its not that uncommon.

I try it out at my local store to see how my guitar (strat copy) and amp (valve jr.) handle stacked OD pedals, if it dosen't work out then oh well
#16
if you have them cranked, you usually get tons of hiss and feedback. generally, people have different settings on each and switch between, or use one for volume boosts

sometimes when i switch from a tube screamer to ds1 running to a valve jr, it sounds pretty good if i leave them both on bit between the switch, provided the od was just a mild boost, but yeah, if u can try it out, that's ur best bet.

Yes, it's true that SRV did use 2 tubescreamers at the same time.

this is nothing new,people have been linking multiple pedals & multiple amps together for years

back when amps couldn't cut it on distortion metal bands would link two of the same to get heavier distortion
#20
It doesn't sound bad at all, idiots.

Use one for a bit of gain, and then the other as a booster, sounds great, everything clears up and the sound is a lot smoother.

Yeah, otherwise a single OD in front of a Tube amp with OD channel would sound crap as well, according to the logic of some of the people down here...

i use a hot head distortion pedal and a badmonkey tube overdrive pedal and i can get a **** load of different tones out of the combo rather than just one or the other.

what about distortion and overdrive together?

Couldn't you use one pedal for your normal distortion sound and then dial a little bit of grit into the other for a gain boost when you want to be that little bit more distorted?

So one pedal for regular distortion/OD and then two for when you want to be grittier...

it would sound very, very bad.


tell that to billy gibbons

trick is to set different levels on each, so they dont just become ****in mudd

I wouldn't think using 2 o/d at once would sound that bad - my pedal board has 5 different gain stages on it - it only sounds bad if i use all 5 at once
