I just recently became a proud owner of a tube amp (5150 II) . I see some guitarists rigs with OD pedals in them who have a 6505/5150. Do they use those while the amp is already on a distorted channel? Because I also notice that there are usually some kind of noise gate in the rack area.
Gear:
Schecter C-1 BlackJack
Peavey 5150 II
Ibanez 25W "Tone Blaster"
Fender Starcaster (Not the vintage kind, the Wal-Mart Value kit kind"

If Dimebag22 was a pie, I would cover him with whipped cream and eat his insides...

yeah, they don't use it for more gain. they use them to tighten the sound up, and add a bit of color if the amp doesn't do it exactly for them.

So they turn the gain on the OD pedal to a small amount if not all the way down?

all the way down.


usually thats how you're supposed to run an OD anyway. gain all the way down, and the level all the way up.

Hmm...

I will have to try that. Thanks.

Also, is the BBE Sonic Maximizer a OD or something else? I have a feeling it is not and OD.

It's meant to do the 'removing a blaket over the amp' kind of thing.
