I have a FW15r with a very neat overdrive function, but not neat enough. It's good, but it doesn't really get the Ac/Dc crunch I want. Should I get another OD pedal or something like a Damage Control tube pedal or just a new amp? (im on a quite small budget)

I heard there is uranium gas in the tubes. So you could easily make a little nuclear blast. If i were you, i wouldn't want to start the World War III.

In my experience, that is the one tone that even a really good SS amp will struggle with. It always seems to be missing something. I think that sound more than any other needs tubes to be pulled off.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

meh...
Its quite impossiible for a SS to get that specific tone. It just wont sound right.

A Peavey Windsor Studio should do the trick.

like i said, im on a very tight budget, thats why i was thinking a Damage Control Pedal would do it. and also, i like in Brazil and power tubers (El84 or 6L6) are very hard to find here and very expensive...

Buy a Marshall Guv'nor distortion pedal, it worked pretty good for classic rock tones on my SS Peavey Blazer 158.

Then when you get a better amp it makes a decent solo boost.

so order your tubes from off the internet.... try eurotubes.com.

and... your amp will never get AC/DC crunch... that sound comes from a Tube amp that is cranked (take the clean channel and turn it all the way up.)

+1 on the Valve Jr Head and Cabinet .... I just bought one and It will do AC/DC crunch tones quite nicely... pair it with an OD pedal and it sounds awsome.

Your crappy amp achieved a purposely crappy tone? I'll alert the presses.

yeah, ill probably do that...before i bought the crate i saw the valve junior but i didnt buy it because 1) i didnt have 250 bucks 2)it was too heavy, but not that i can get the money and weight is not an issue, ill probably buy it
