After researching for about a week and trying to decide want tube combo I wanted, I finally made a choice. I bought a 65 Twin Reverb with a Fulltone OCD overdrive. Yeah I am one lucky SOB. It's like my dream rig, the overdrive is just fantastic! Now I want to know if anyone else has any tips for use or any settings that would sound good on this rig. BTW I want to thank those who helped me in my earlier threads.

Sweet. My setup is an Epiphone Dot Deluxe w/ Seymour Duncans and an old Marshall Valvestate combo from 1986. I have effects, too, but I don't really use them much. Anyway, I get an awesome tone from it. It reminds me of Clapton's tone on the Bluesbreakers album and when he was in Cream.

Nice bro! I think I saw a bunch of those older valvestates up at the shop the other day, never tried any though.

ive never really played with either of your new toys but they both sound very nice. the best part of new gear is fiddling with it to get the sound you are after. im no help when it comes to settings haha.

Whoa, you got a REAL '65 Twin Reverb? Jeez.

Anyways, the OCD is awesome. Paul Gilbert uses one.
#13
Yes, but he prefers his Keeley TS9DX Flexi over it !!
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

Nice, what made you choose the '65 Twin then?

And I'm still itching to try the OCD.

Well my plan was to find an amp with the best clean tone to suit my style. I figured that once I had a good basis for tone that I could get a good overdrive pedal for rock and blues stuff. By the way, this amp is fecking loud! The OCD is better than the Ibanez TS in my opinion. The overdrive is so touch dynamic, its crazy. If you nail an A you can immediately get that "Who" kind of sound.

How's the Rotovibe? Is it better bang for buck than say...a Fulltone Dejavibe?
#17
I've never tried the fulltone one before so I can't really say. The Roto reacts very good to heavy fuzz or distrotion and also adds a great clean effect. Its ok with just overdrive but fuzz is where it really shines. You can get that "Hendrix/Woodstock" tone. Its a tone sucker though (Anybody know how to fix that?)...

It's probably not true bypass... but maybe you mean when the effect is on?

Like its doesn't really matter whether its on or off, it still colors my tone pretty good.

epiphone gats sound suprisingly good with fenders a?
i think youll find that if yours is an older model twin reverb then itl be a similar one or same to what kurt cobain used.

i suggest you buy big muff or somethin similar (i got a bm but i also have a behringer copy)
if you like the retro sound
#21
I think the fender I have is fairly new 2006/2007. Its one of the reissues but from what I hear the RI's sound very close to the originals. I haven't tried a big muff on it yet.

Nice setup. The OCD kills and it's damn tough to beat a Blackface Twin Reverb's cleans. I'm wondering how the OCD sounds with it though. I've had most of my luck so far using it with Mashall style amps.
#23
Well I tried out one of the newer and smaller Mesa combos (I think it was a Express 1x12) but the OCD and TRRI won out most definitely. I've heard that Twin Reverbs don't like to accept certain OD pedals very well but this is perfect. OCD = Damn Good Pedal
