I'm a big fan of that Marshall DSL, Soldano, Plexi-on-steroids sound. Basically a huge mid-range growl that makes your guitar sound huge in a band mix. Anyone know of a great pedal where I can get that mean powertube growl out of a box?
I'm currently using a Blackstar HT-Dual, which a good little pedal, but when you crank up your amp, it sounds like dirt/gain rests "on top" of your clean guitar tone. It's not in the "core" (if that makes any sense. You know, like when you have a tube head with the resonance knob cranked).
I've read up on the Wampler Pinnacle, and I think it may be the ticket (was kind of surprised the SLOstortion and Triple Wreck sounded a bit too compressed for me).
Anyway, any other suggestions? Does this post make any sense to anyone else?
