I am looking for an OD that can go from a natural overdrive, to a Mesa, to a JCM-800, and everything in between.

I was thinking a VooDoo Labs, or a Marshall OD pedal.

Any other suggestions?


Also, is the following too many pedals for rythm?


COMP
OD
CHORUS
SPACE ECHO
TUNER

You're back? Are you still trying to play through a solid state amp?

skater, you see, a long time ago this guy hung around forums asking for amp advice refusing to take our word on solid states. Solid states are fine to play through, it's just for the budget this guy was giving us, there are better amps.

Most of the time you can find a tube amp that will sound better at the same price. The only times I'd recommend solid state is for practice amp or if you need lots of versatility and you have a short budget, otherwise tube is the way to go. Solid state amps lack the warmth and dynamics that tube amps provide.

There's no conventional OD or distortion pedal that covers such a wide range of sounds, what you're looking for is some kind of modeller - look at the Tech 21 SansAmp GT.

personally, i think thats too many pedals for rythym playing. but, to each his own. my quarrel with that many pedals is that your tone gets processed through allt hose pedals before going to the amp, so your tone is not a natual. i always associated rythym playing with just a bit of OD, and maybe some slight compression.

not true. many players use SS amps for their consistant tone and easy maintenance. B.B. King, the man with the warmest tone imaginable, plays through SS amps. many Jazz players do aswell.

I don't think BB kings tone is all that great (not to mention he used a bassman most of the time) and jazz players don't want dynamics.

Say what you will about tone, but solid states don't have the same dynamics, you can't play lightly and clean up a dirty signal or dig in and get some breakup.

To answer everyones questions, no. no more SS. I am buying a Crate V-series (18W) for smaller gigs. I am also saving for a Mesa (not sure which model yet), for medium to larger gigs.

Don't mean to be rude, but I've never heard that before. Is that actually a true statement?

Edit: And I would think, as long as he is not using all those pedals at once for a pure rhythm tone, he should be fine..

They want a very mellow flat sound where every note sounds the same, something solid states do well.

What?

Kevin, you seem to be mistaken. I saw an interview with BB King where he said he used a Fender Deluxe or Super back in the day.

Also, to say Jazz players don't want dynamics is just plain false. I play in 2 jazz bands, and if I don't have the ability to go from whisper quiet to overwhelming verge of break up fervor, my playing is going to be forgettable.

I play a Fender Twin for Jazz band.

BB's tone isn't as good, but I still haven't seen a link with BB's gear.

Surely BB uses a Gibson Lab Series solid state?

I was under the impression most jazz players didn't want dynamics, which is why many used solid state amps. I guess I was wrong.

You're right about bb too, I knew it was some kind of old fender.

Well, if Jazz players want dynamics then they should go tube too.

He did when cbs bought fender, he didn't like their amps then. I do believe he went back, I think on his 80th bday or something like that when he played on lenos show he had a fender. I'm 90% positive on that.

I know the sound you're talking about, and it may be true in some cases. But, Jazz is one of the most expressive, dynamic forms of music out there. When jazz guitarists go through, lets say, 32 note patterns, every 2nd or 3rd note is accented, syncopated and phrased with dynamics.

I'm assuming you don't listen to a lot of Jazz, then.

Check the Dynamics on that.

You would be correct. Goes to show, when you don't know, shut up.
