How much of the SVT classic sounds are coming from the 8x10 "fridge" speaker cabinet? How closely can a pedal replicate that, and of course it's going to depend on what kind of amp/speakers the pedal is going through.
What would be a good/best pedal to get the oldschool dirty (think Yes, or early Rush) sound using a Rickenbacker 4003 and Eden head through a pair of Markbass 2x10s? The Markbass cabs are ported so they're never going to be as punchy/snappy as a fridge but they are alright for lightweight cabs.
The goal is to get as close as possible to that sound with a small lighweight rig.
