Hello to everybody!!!

First I wanna say that I have started a Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute band, and I want to know, what kind of pedals should I need... I don´t know anything ´bout pedals or effects.
I know CCR don´t have crazy effects, but I want the "vintage sound".

I have a Strato, a Laney amp and a tremolo pedal...

I was going to buy the KORG AX1500G, but then I saw the Boss GP-20 Amp Factory, and I was thinking to use the Blues Driver with the last one...

What do you think???

And... I love 60´s and 70´s music... so I would probably use the pedals, for that kind of music...

Thanks!!!

PS: I forgot to say... money available: less than 315 dollars....

what model laney amp?
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

^It's a 30W solid state amp.

If I were you I would get a new amp. All you need for Creedence really. In your pricerange you could get a used Fender Blues Jr. Will fit PERFECT for that vintage Fogerty tone!

I have a Laney HardCoreMax... the distortion is very good... songs like Hey Tonight and Up Around The Bend sounds great... but there are others... that I fell... something is missing...

Yes. The reason is mainly that the amp isn't extremely good. I would recommend you getting a Blues Jr. will fit great for that Creedence tone!

Nice to see other CCR fans here too! My band always play Fortuante Son as our opening song.

We were doing Born On The Bayou and Suzie Q...

And yeah, a small tube combo is the only piece of gear you need. The Blues Jr. is a fine amp, but almost any amp that size would be great for you. Ampeg, Traynor, Peavey, Crate... whatever you can find on the used market.

Is there a fuzz pedal needed for CCR. I'm sure that solo in Suzie Q uses some kind of fuzz and filter. Either way, CCR are great.

Just an OD. If you're pushing a little amp all the way, you probably don't even need that.

I suppose so. It does sound like a little Fender Champ or something similar being pushed to the limit.

i just got a Kustom 36 Coupe (I'm sure you're aware CCR used to use Kustoms back in the day)

but playing along on the clean channel to songs like proud mary and bad moon rising sound brilliant, a very similar tone to the original recording.

hope that helps
