    Not guitar level, but that slight background fuzz distortion, is there a pedal that has that?

    The modern Geddy Lee tone? In pedal form, the SansAmp BDDI. He uses the SansAmp RBI (rackmount version of the BDDI) for his dirt.

    Agreed. I was thinking about it when listening to Rush In Rio recently, and it just sounds like these days he's got a lot more dirt. You ain't gonna cop the [Power Windows or Hold Your Fire tone with a Sansamp though.

    I went to Rush in Rio.
    His sound was amazing!

    I'd say SABDDI or MXR M-80 for light dist.
