  • Orange Tiny Terror and Distortion pedals

    Hi Guys

    More advice needed. I have an Orange Tiny Terror which is awesome sounding but limited . I need to have at least 2 Stages of gain for the covers band i currently play in and at the moment my current set up isnt working.

    Im playing with the gain at about 12 o'clock so its a dirty clean signal , then trying to boost up to big high gain distortion sounds by feeding either a Boss blues driver , a Boss Heavy metal 2 or a EHX Nano muff into it . So far bad fuzzy results .They dont seem to feed into each other right and im getting a muddy sound .

    What I need is ideas on what could work , ie settings or if just a better quality pedal is needed and some examples.

    thanks for any advice given , you guys are normally pretty cool!

    Use the Blues Driver if your gonna boost gain. I've heard that it's a very transparent overdrive. The HM-2 and the Nano muff are nothing but buzz crap.

    <div class="message">I use the weeping demon, by Ibanez. And trust me, it gets sounds that no one's hands can make... in fact that statement seems a little loaded... I mean getting a slight &quot;wah&quot; sound with a bend or pick attach is possible, but you cant replicate a full-bore wah-pedal effect with your fingers... nor use your fingers and foot simultaneously without a wah pedal... unless your fingers are actually signal filters. In which case... bravo.</div>

      Well have tried with the blues drive , it doesnt give it enough saturation for songs like feeder, blink 182 ect . Any ideas?

          Nice , thats very cool . Any other ideas for me guys?


          • #6
            I would recommend a treble bleed on your volume pot....then just run the tiny terror at full gain, and get the lower gain sounds using your volume pot.

            This is the way I use mine.

              Thats an idea , but i play a Micheal kelly les paul copy and the volume knob is very low down , but im gonna try it at band practice.

              Has anyone ever got a tiny terror and pedals to work side by side?

                NOT a cheap solution - but the Barber Tone Pump or Dirty Bomb may work for you.


                There is also the Fulltone OCD and the Radial distortion boxes like this one (there are several others) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iflsc4uMGww
