I am a huge fan of Jefferson Airplane.

They use a gentle, bright, type of distortion. Listen to the song "Volunters" or "The Ballad of You and Me and Pooniel", you'll see what I mean.


What distortion, overdrive, or fuzz could cover the song "Volunteers" the best?

The kind of overdrive you get out of a tube amp.

well, yes I know they used tube back then.

But I mean, like...

was it a Fender '59 Bassman, '65 Twin, an early Marshall Plexi of some kind, a Vox, what would work best?

Yeah, no one uses tubes now, they're outdated.

what I meant was that back then hardly noone used SS. Everyone used tube back then. I thought it was understood that most people STILL use tubes.

*Sigh* I'll have one soon
Just because I own a solid state doesn't mean you have to bash me out whenever it comes to a tube conversation.
I don't like solid state tone, and you don't have to be a presumptuous **** and decide that I must be completely out of the loop.
Just because I can't afford, doesn't mean I don't have taste or knowledge.

Sorry, I had a rough night last night, so I'm all on edge.

I just thought it sounded funny that he was looking for a solid state pedal, then next reply was about using tubes, and then he responded in a way that sounded like tubes were old news.

Che Guevara, you my only friend.


oh, collapse, sorry I didn't see your last post.


Anyways, I found an amp with great cleans, but the dirty chanel is sucks. I'm not gonna say what kind 'cause everyone on here except collapse will flame me for using SS.

Anyway, what's a good pedal for Jefferson Airplane distortion/overdrive/fuzz?

Two in a row, eh?

Either a buy a small tube amp or buy something that sounds like a cranked tube amp. Fulltone OCD? I've heard good things of the English Muff'n and the Germanium OD, although I've yet to try both.
