  • Overdrive for a silverface twin?

    Looking for an overdrive to compliment the songs in my sig. I run through a '74 twin with a strat and an AVRI JM. Not looking to drop a huge amount of money, less than or equal to $150 would be best. I'd also be interested in building a kit with upgraded parts.


    Any suggestions?


    Also, how do I become purple?!

      I've been thinking about buying up a few of these and trying my hand at modding.

    I use an MXR Classic OD with my silverface twin.  Works really well with a strat.  $30 new when they were sold at GC, you'd have to find one on the used market.

      I used a Rat and SD-1 when I had a SFTR.

        Marshall Guv'nor Mk1 worked well with my Silverface.  You can also use the loop on it to switch channels on the amp if you like.

          This is a great suggestion.  Personally, I drank the kool aid a long time ago and I'm perfectly happy with my Bad Monkey-for the price, it's a pretty safe experiment.
