I've learned plenty about overdrives from these forums, but I'm a bit puzzled with my overdrive situation right now. I used to own a "hifi" modern rig and I used a Barbershop for OD and a Phat Phuk B for a dirty boost. I could achieve a very warm distortion tone that would still cut through the mix with this hifi rig. I sold that rig and bought an Acoustic 370 head and built a 2x15 cabinet (no tweeters) for it. The Acoustic 370 has excellent control over the bass and low midrange (50 Hz to 400 Hz) and a nice shelving treble control for those unfamiliar. The 2x15 has a natural high end rolloff at about 2500-3000 Hz I love the very warm tone I'm getting and the versatility of the EQ in the head, however, I can't seem to get any sort of usable overdriven sounds out of it with the Barbershop or Phat Phuk. I've tried a few others (warm, tube-like ODs) as well with no luck: any kind of dirt that I throw at the Acoustic 370 sounds muddy and way too compressed, has no attack, and is just generally unusable. So with that said, is it possible to get a good articulate overdrive sound out of a vintage rig like the Acoustic 370? My best guess is that I need a pedal that meets these needs: - uncolored/no baked in EQ (so no I won't be buuying a Darkglass or a Sansamp because I love how my amp sounds now) - punchy, lots of attack - not highly compressed or warm (like the Barbershop; it seems that a very warm OD paired with my very warm amp is making things too muddy) I would also like it to have these attributes too: - dynamic/touch sensitive - can be used as a clean boost, dirty boost, and overdrive Anyone have any recommendations or ideas???
