Does anyone know What distortion pedal Les Uses in the chorus of "Jerry was a racecar driver"?
oh, on the chorus i think it just fuzzes because he's playing hard and boosts the volume, hence natural "overdrive".
I think he uses a Mesa Boogie pre-amp something or other. I spotted him fiddling with a large device with the Mesa Boogie logo in his rack mount when he was switching to his distortion tone.
Actually I'm pretty sure he uses a Proco bass rat. you could try out the reissue of the juggernaut. Just remember it'll take a lot more than his pedals to sound like Les.

Edit: Actually after a quick google search Les appears to use an MXR M-80 + bass di to get his overdriven sound.
Rickenbacker 4003
Carvin 210 Neo
Ampeg V4BH
