Members flip333 Posted February 7, 2007 Members Share Posted February 7, 2007 Hi guys, Would you help me please? I have a Traynor 50 tube amp... running a Zoom GFX1 in the loop for standard effects. I like the effects fine, but the distortions are poor. However, I have found a couple that work at low volume for a couple of things: 1) The "metal" drive gives me a cool high gain that lets my fingers move much more quickly over the fretboard. It hangs on the edge of feedback if I stop moving.. it feels very liquid and smooth. 2) The "blues" drive seems OK on the clean channel for an SRV tone.. or the "fender" drive does this All the drives on this thing go to crap at higher volumes. The Traynor 50 has two channels with a boost. The clean is great to my ears and breaks up nicely. The lead channel is Marshally British and is great without the boost for bluesy edge. The boost adds more gain for a nice classic rock overdrive. Thanks for bearing with me. What I am looking for is a distortion/overdrive pedal that could give me that over the top metal tone on the lead channel and give me an edgy SRV tone on the clean channel. I would have a nice selection of tones with minimum pedals. The other thing is I like the uncolored tones of this amp, which I always like available to me. Thats why I like this cheap little Zoom GFX1 for effects. I hardly use my GNX2 anymore... it changes things too much. Thanks for your ideas.
