I never got much tone out of that $15 dollar Danelectro overdrive...
That part is actually pretty easy...I have done that with a couple OD/boost pedals I've built. I can either OD the boosted signal for more overhead or boost the OD.
My first was a DS-1, and I’ll admit, I’ve never found much use for it. I used to whack the tone and gain up to max to get Edwin Collins fuzz noises out of it, and recently I’ve managed to get some ok nirvana ish sounds from it, but it’s pretty meh for my rig / music.
I also have an sd2 which didn’t grip me- I will dust this one off and give it another go.
I love all the tube screamers I’ve had! Be it into solid state or valve.
Rocktek- wow- that takes me back, my first amp was an rk20r and I still have an ad-02 analogue delay on my board.........
Traded it in for $10 more than I was asking for on CL, I think it's still in the shop....
It was in front of a DRRI. I just never bonded with the SD
They work better in front of a Marshall in my experience. I like them okay in front of a Fender, but the Fulldrive is my favorite OD for a Fender amp. Similar to an SD-1, but more usable due to the extra features.
That is so funny you mention the FD. I am on my 5th one right now. It's an 03 FD2 non mosfet #1504. I have had 2 Mosfet versions (did not like em), 1 Non Mosfet, Non FM pull comp cut mode (very nice but limited with out the FM) and 2 Non Mosfet, switch for vintage, FM and Comp Cut (my favorite). I am now using it with my Swart AST and it's sonic heaven. The only thing about FD's is they really don't come alive until band volumes, of course a lot of Fuller's pedals seem that way.
My first pedal was the DOD FX55 - an earlier version of that pedal. Tough to get a good sound with the 55 too
Im gonna get slapped
the fulltone OCD
great with Single coils. HORRIBLE with humbuckers.
whatever. I know folks that love em love em.
another worthy mention would be the Boss Metal Zone. its piss in a box. you know it. they know it. I know it.
haha yes!!! the Digitech Grunge pedal is one of those things I tried to forget about.
Digitech Screamin'Blues... Would just make the sound loud.... or have uninteresting tones when set to max gain...
I'm kinda gassing for a Metal Zone just to see what its like.
Is that stupid?
It was my first distortion pedal. I was all set to buy the MXR Distortion pedal which was the distortion pedal to have back in the day but a friend who played guitar and was much better than I suggested this pedal. I used it for years but never really liked it. To be fair, I'd love to tinker with it today with a bit more experienced ears but I ended up giving it away sometime in the 90s
The Digitech X Series Tone Driver was pretty mediocre too, as I recall. Even as a newbie who was easily satisfied by anything that made distortion, it never quite sounded right to me.
Mine was the FX55B Supra Distortion. I couldn't remember what the model number was until I read your post. That thing was horrible! Just thinking about it makes me want to gouge my ears or south an ice pick.
You have driven a dagger through my heart.
I like mine with SC's and HB's.
What’s funny is the Boss Heavy Metal has a cult following for that Swedish Death Metal tone. A buddy of mine got one for like $10 a few years ago and now they’re like $100 or more.
it was on Gilmour’s board at one time too.
I’d get that just for the glowing hounds of Hell eyes
That was one of the perks of getting my witch doctor fuzz... the glowing eyes.
