I'm looking for a boost to push my Blackstar a little harder.
I specifically dont want a TS style boost though, that midrangey/bass cut sound that "tightens things up" for metal and such.
If anything, I want a LOOSER sound, lots more gain and looser bass, think, Josh Holme of Queens of the stone age. That kind of low middy grind.
Any ideas? was looking at way huge but theyve got like 4 different overdrives and I dont know the difference.
Boss Blues Driver - very big low end when you whack it up
Red ones are better.
I'd agree, the Boss BD-2 is the opposite of the usual mid-heavy OD pedals. I could never get it to work well through my Vox AC15 though - I don't think a pedal that aims to recreate a Fender-style amp works well through a very "British"-sounding amp. I'd expect it to work much better with a Blackstar with their eq controls.
If you don't get on with it you can sell it on with little loss, and there's also plenty of mods around to improve the bass response, make it less harsh etc.
Throbak Overdrive Boost. It's a fuzzy overdrive pedal and does stoner rock perfectly. It has seperate bass and treble controls too.
The conductor said I could get my bookbag and run around the hallway with it.
I like rats but not for this purpose.
The joyo would be good cause its so cheap, ill try the bd2 too.
Well I would always say the Lazy j Cruiser but that might be out of your price range. However, if you like the sound of your amp the Cruiser is the best there is in my opinion
Hope it helps
I found the Way Huge Green Rhino overdrive to be pretty noisy and not that great. Josh uses weird gear, and the Queens sound has more fuzz to it than overdrive.
That said, check out the Visual Sound Open Road which specifically does not have a Tubescreamer style mid-range hump. It's a very broad and rich overdrive. Also the Plimsoul from Fulltone might be worth checking out. It's less compressed than their OCD, for example, and sounds loose and open whilst being heavy.
Take a look at this: http://www.effectsbay.com/2010/06/jo...oked-vultures/ Loads of octave effects, a Fulltone Fatboost and some fuzz-wah type stuff. Interesting.
