Right, i need a pedal which gives me that squealy, middy, definable solo tone that sets my solo tone apart from my normal tone. What type of pedals would i want to be using? I already have a russian muff but it doesnt give me a very definable tone when doing the high solos. I play in a one guitar band and play indie/classic rock stuff, no hard rock or metal stuff. Nothing heavier than say, ac/dc really.

a tube screamer is pretty much a mid/gain boost

^Eww.
^^Double eww.

Get either a clean boost, an overdrive, or an EQ.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

oh i wasnt stating ac/dc as heavy. i just mean we dont go any heavier than ac/dc.
#9
Id say an MXR Mini-amp. its a clean boost, and should give u a good solo tone. or a Tubescreamer, or pretty much any overdrive pedal for a gain boost.
#10
boss eq.. set it how u like.. also has a volume knob as well.. kick it in for extra gain and volume boost, and/or tube screamer of course

^no **** isn't that what i said?

a Gibson SG plugged straight into a cranked JTM45. it wouldn't get that heavy by itself.

which tubescreamer would you recomend then? i would want one with a good/true bypass.
#19
make one from BYOC. they're $85, but you have to make them urself. true bypass and everything. i don't know any true bypass overdrive pedals under $100... except that.

making it myself would be fine if it saves me money. what is BYOC? (sorry for been a noob
#25
^www.buildyourownclones.com is BYOC.

it's not a great way to save money for noobs. if your not too handy with a soldering iron, i wouldn't recommend it. the solder pads are REALLY small, so it would be hard if its ur first project or anything.

but if you're handy with soldering iron, GREAT way to save money.
