Hey

Im very unhappy with the gain chanell on my Peavey VK 112 ....its to dirtty for my taste .. so i need something to give me a NON-DIRTTY overdrive ..like in this song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCgw0hmgLFQ the guitar tone at the beggining of the song.

currenty im looking at the Marhall bb-2 ..and the Digitech Bad Monkey. which one would get me close to that tone ?

if u guys have any other suggestions other than those above pls do .

thx for any feedback

Cheers !

seymour duncan pickup booster pedal would do it probably.
or an EQ pedal, the possibilities are endless with those things.

ah great thx ...

the SD booster ...what does it exacly do ... boost the output in the pickups ?
#9
well ..if its worth it ... its up to 100 euros ...about 150 $
#13
yes ...but also 3 times the price ...and thers also the kerry king eq by mxr ..which is even more expenzive ..

..to come back to the Bad Monkey ..couldnt i use this as an eq ..and maybe add just a bit of gain ? i usualy use little gain
#14
the kerry king is just a regular 10 band but with his name on it and two outputs. not worth it IMO.


you could use it as a very basic EQ but you can't turn the bass up much or it starts to get muddy. for adding a bit of gain, it's perfect of course. but don't expect miracles from the 'eq'.

i dont need bass ..at all ..with the vk 112 and my epi lp standard i allready have a lot of bass that i do not desire ... the lp's p-ups are v bassy. i need to brighten up the sound as much as posible

ahh, it's good for cutting bass if you'd want to
i guess you could use the treble control to brighten up your sound (why not use the amp's EQ though ? ) and the gain knob to add the gain you want.

haha, cool
join the lefties group if you're not already in it

well on the gain chanell of my amp i got the treble and mids at max ...and still the tone is pretty dark ...

hehe ..and is that the europe's lefty club ? :P .. where can i join ?

if you did want to still get a OD pedal (which can do the trick IMO) check out fulltone's ocd and MI audio's blueboydeluxe. I can get that tone you were looking for with my blue boy.

i know i need a speaker change and a tube swap also .. i heard it clears the sound a lot .. but i dont have the money to do that right now .. and when i'll do i'll sell my vk and get an Ac30

and can i pls get a link to the MI audio blueboydeluxe ...i cant seem to find it
