dude no man. for $100 ish, get a weber attenuator somehow. (ur in australia. but u still have ebay right?)

it would give u all the blues overdrive u need.

but one downside is that it eats up ur tubes...

match made in heaven dude, but if you ever feel like playing something with more gain the TS9 wont cut it
#5
and i was just asking cos i read some say that certain amps do/dont go with certain pedals
#6
u can adjust the gain volume when u crank ur amp... so why not an attenuator? and it cleans up perfectly with a twist of a volume knob too.

^i dunno. i play a tubescreamer (custom one with TB and other mods) through my blues jr (modeled similar to the blues deluxe) and it sounds kinda harsh when having my face in front of my speaker, and it sounds bad when im standing up... i'm getting a weber beam blocker soon, but i dunno.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

^isn't the logic the same as just sitting with my face in front of my amp?

^ No. Cause you don't have to bend over to put your face in front of it.

Hmm, interesting setup

I do that alot at school. I once put a Marshall AVT15 or whatever it's called on top of 2 60w 1x12 bass combos, the line out of the AVT into the first one, and the bass combo patched into the next bass combo. That was epic fullstackzors. Much fuller tone than a usual AVT, actually...

but the fact that the blues jr. is not sitting on the marshall real tight, it's losing tone i think. corduroyEW told me that. i might put like a piece of wood on both sides of the marshall's handle (too tall), it should level the blues jr. with a nice strong base.

it'll sound great.
i'm getting a BYOC screamer for my blues deluxe.
i suggest you take a look at those, they're cheaper and slighty better.
don't expect to NAIL the SRV tone though.

Well, the blues series of fender amps are based upon vintage 'tweed' style amps that fender put out mostly in the 50's. They were characterized by a nice warm sound, but still had that fender sparkle on cleans. They're a lot meatier than the blackface amps that fender put out in the 60's, which is what Stevie used. Blackface amps are a lot less midrangy and have a slightly "thinner" tone. The reason that a Tubescreamer worked so well for stevie was that it added some mids to an amp which really wasnt that midrangy to begin with.

And no, you cant just turn the mids down on your amp. It works to an extent, but its definitely not the same tone.

So, you could use a tubescreamer, and it would sound good, (i do it on my blues junior sometimes), but it gets quite boxy sounding, and something like an OCD, which is a more even booster, gets me a better tone. Its all preference.
