Hey Justin This question is no bass related... but you're a great guitar player as well, and i'm pretty sure that the years wearing the producer hat and touring with very talented guitar players gave you enough experience to answer this. I'm looking for a great distortion pedal for touring as a guitar player. In the studio i have good luck with the usual stuff, old Rats, Tubescreamers, Hotcake (love that pedal!) Klon etc... Always using really loud amps. In live situation i can't put a 100w head at full power, so volume is an issue... i need to go to the route of a clean amp and use pedals for my distorted rythm tones. It's being really difficult, since most pedals sound weak when you set your amp clean and put a microphone in front of the amplifier I tried my loved Hot Cake but not enough gain/bite without using it with a crunchy amp. I tried a Jam Pedals Rattler (Rat Clone) but sounds too compressed. I'm looking for something that sounds big, fat and similar to a crancked tube head. I covered all my fuzz tones and TS overdrive tones, now i need good rythm distortion stuff. I'm using mostly Fender stuff, Jaguars and Jazzmaster, so getting a heavy and full bodied guitar tone can be slightely more difficult than when i use Gibson guitars. Could you recommend me something great for touring? In general, what kind of guitar rig do you think works best for live situation regarding, volume/tone /performance? As always, thanks for doing this!
