Hey all. I use low output Custom Shop 69 pickups and I am trying to get more gain from an overdrive pedal (Tone City King of Blues). Just wondering if an EQ pedal with a level/gain control used before my OD pedal would work to sort of increase the output of my pickups and therefore allow the OD pedal to give me more gain. My amp is a Limited Edition Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III Tweed with Jensen C12N speaker. Thanks!
