So next on my list is an overdrive. I've been looking at the Boss OD-3 and SD-1 pedals, and I like both of the tones, but I can't decide. I've also looked at the standard Tube Screamers, but a friend of mine who plays similar music to myself said that those tend to boost the midrange, which, considering the hollowbodies we play most with, is a bad thing.

I'm looking to play psychobilly to classic rock, surf to hard rock, etc., just covering all the bases. However, I don't want a pedal so versatile it does nothing greatly, so I guess the main thing I'm looking for are the four listed above.

I have two tube amps, a 1977 Peavey Backstage 30 30w and a 1985 Gorilla GG-80 150w, as well as a little solid-state Crate practice amp.


If you want to know more, there's always the profile.

Thanks!

I'm not sure if those are tube amps, but I wouldn't run an overdrive with a solid state amp.

I don't know what you're on about with the mids, but all those genres have tons of mids so I don't see why that would be a problem.

The ts808 is a great standby but if you've got the cash the fulldrive 2 is absolutely amazing.

Yeah, OD pedals are really meant for tube amps.

What I was on about with the mids was that when I play psychobilly I generally use the same EQ as my rockabilly, but with the iffy amp drive. I got the EQ from an old magazine interview with Brian Setzer, and it has highs nearly full, bass at about 5 or 6, and mids at 2-4.

I have been wanting a new amp for a while, but I have $5 right now, and come Christmas I'll probably have around $70, tops. I was looking at the Hot Rod Blues Juniors and the Vox amps above, but I somehow doubt I will be getting A) enough money in the near future, and B) I will be getting an amp as a gift. My hollowbody last year was a bit of a stretch as it is (was?).

EDIT:

As a side note, anything over $500-$600 at this point is a pipe dream.

If you don't need uber clean cleans I'd look at the ac15 and the blues jr, but not the hot rod version, get the base version and if you think it needs it swap the speaker yourself.

nice find, gonna be TERRIBLE for bedroom though, will sound like mud.

at drummer volume, terrific though.

Oh and look at some maxon OD's, true bypass.

Meh, I disagree. Twins sound pretty decent at low volumes, seeing as they have enough headroom to kill a bull moose anyway.

I'm just bummed it's $600, even though it's a hell of a steal. Sucks that the guy's selling to make rent, too. I just don't know if it's still too much.

Traynor YCV40. Price looks good, about to look for some demos on YouTube or something.

So since this has turned into a new amp thread, which would be best for the price range of $300 - $600?
