Big Red is kind of old junk these days I guess but I'm hoping someone has enough knowledge to help me get some decent sounds from mine. I've been out of band situations for a few years and just the other day got myself a spot in a Black Sabbath tribute band. I have the old GT-6B hanging around here for quite a while but never was in a band that had much need for effects, so I never really got to know the unit very well. Now I'm working on getting Geezer's tone out of the thing and having a bit of a tough time doing that. I got something sorta kinda passable I guess... I mean the wah sounds ok but the OD/distortion/fuzz sounds like a giant tone dump no matter what I do. Also it seems like all the distortion settings are more fuzz/buzzy and not grindy/growly like I want. Hopefully that's more my ineptitude than an actual shortcoming of the pedal and someone can clue me in a bit as to some settings to explore. I'm not at a point in the band where I want to spend money on gear (first rehearsal is in 3 weeks!) so I'll be working with what I've got for now. If the unit just plain isn't up to the task, then I'll buy a couple pedals later on if this band really works out well. I'm guessing I'd go for like a Darkglass Vintage Tones (open to suggestions) and Geezer crybaby probably. I have an original GCB95 crybaby and that thing seems like a tone destroyer as well. Feels like it just kills all the meatiness from my sound. By the way, I have a Kustom Groove 1200, Carvin B800 and B1500 to play through. Genz Benz 212 Neox cabs, a Bill Fitzmaurice 2-10 omni, and an Avatar 1-15 if you care to make suggestions. I've been A-B'ing stuff and just from hearing it at home, it seems like the B800/GB Neox is probably going to be my go-to setup. Good solid tone IMO and not too bad to lug around.
