... and this is really strange! I'm in the market for a nice OD/DS to use on my Pink Floyd tribute band. I bought a Buffalo-FX Evolution which, on every video, review, etc sounded AMAZING and when tried with my Road Worn 50's Strat (stock pickups) and AC30 sounded crap. But I mean really bad... tinny, "tin-can" sound. I thought it was the combination pedal->amp that just didn't work and I returned the pedal. Now I bought a TC Electronic VPD1 (Vintage Pre-Drive), again great in videos, reviews, etc and the same thing! Sounded crap thru my guitar->amp. This time I tested on another amp (smaller one) and same result! Cables are good so... guitar??? Being a purchase for the Pink Floyd band I really need it to work with the (a?) Strat. The guitar sounds amazing on cleans, chorus, no gain loss to my ears... why on OD/DS sound like crap? Should the Tex-Mex sound this crap on OD's/DS? Or do you think I have some other issue going on?
