What kind of pedal should I buy.

    I am looking for an effects pedal that will give me a real dark, "dirty blues" sound or anything else that sounds cool. What would be best?
  2. I want to get a Fulltone BassDrive but i don't have the money at the moment since i bought a new rig. It's a sh*tty feeling when you can't afford a pedal. Seems like such a small thing. Anyway, i heard it's a damn good overdrive but i don't know if it will help you.
  3. If you already have a tube amp, you might want to try an octaver for organ-like effects? If you crank the level of the box and overdrive your preamp somewhat, you'll get a nifty fuzzed-out blues tone.
  4. The Ibanez TS9 and TS10 can get some really nice gritty/dirty tones... and it stays bassy, you can even mod them relatively cheap so they'll have more bass. It's not that expensive and has simular distortion to the fulltone bass drive.
