Re: Can you get that Slash style gain or distorted sound from a pedal?

: Someone said the Marshall Gv-2 becuase it is like having a tube amp in a pedal. I also have been using SD Alnico II's in my LP's for a while but can't spring for a marshall tube stack due to me moving to NY. I'm running out of an old fender amp. Have tried the gain all the way up, and blah blah blah but it is not a marshall and it is not a tube amp. any ideas???

Hi Andrew, for the people on the forum here, I just want 'em to know you're a different Andrew, not my son who goes by Andrew Listmayer. I've been having trouble getting my answers posted on the forum too, getting blocked by the moderator, so I haven't got a lot to say. Will let the other boys address your effects question. It's great, and would be alot of fun to talk about pedals. But I gotta say, you need a compressor/sustainer right away.

I'm a super serious, many-years-old Gibson hotrodder. I think your Alnico 2's in the first place are a little light & bright. The alloy in the 2's are the vintagy, jingly janglers of the magnet world. Alnico 5's are the heavy hitters, as are PAF humbuckers if you still want vintage tone with a little more punch. If this was my rig and my gig, I'd go ebay or used, and cop a set of DiMarzio super distortions to put ahead of everything else. Strat Man Dwight
