  • Ibanez SD9 output?

    I enjoy using the Ibanez SD9 Sonic Distortion for non-fuzz distortion purposes, and like its sound. However, it sounds best on lower distortion levels (I like that knob at about 9 o'clock), and I then have to crank the volume knob all the way up just to get close to unity gain. Is there any component that can be changed just to boost the volume a little?

    This thread is too dull and on-topic. Sorry. Here's Grape Ape instead:

      I have an Analogman modded SD-9 and I use the RGW Electronics "Bad Bob" pedal to give it that extra kick when I take a solo.
      It's even great on it's own.
      Put it at the end of your pedal chain for best results.

      See it on my web site here! >>> Garyatrics >>> Our Stuff >>> Gary's

      And here's Bad Bob's web site! >>> RGW Electronics Bad Bob booster pedal

      Good Luck!

        I could try a booster in front, I suppose. I use a Zvex SHO for clean boosts, but hadn't tried it in combination with the SD9. I'll give that a shot.

          run it after the SD9. If you run it first, it will push a clean signal thru the pedal as well. Not a bad tone, but it may not be what you are after.

            That's what I was afraid of. I suppose it's rearranging time! I've had the SHO first in the chain for a long time; but there's no particular reason why it couldn't be after the OD, fuzz, and SD9 but before the modulation.

              My Ibanez SD9 is way above unity gain with those settings (I too like it set to low gain) however I too would suggest running a boost after it -- I use a Katana and it sounds great with it.
