Members 89strat Posted May 9, 2006 Members Share Posted May 9, 2006 I currently have the od808, and it's pretty good, but I'm looking for something a little different. I set the gain channel on my Peavey Classic 50 about 10:00 - 11:00. I'm using the od808 (gain at 9:00) to boost it but I think I need something that will cut through better withouth the peircing highs with my strat, add some nice boost to stand out in the mix. Clean boosts tend to make the amp a little to brittle. From what I understand, the OD-3 isn't that bright sounding and would work well for this and has a lot of volume to it but I can't find one to try out. I tried a sd-1 but found it not so great sounding. The barber ltd I had, but thought it lacked a little in the sustain area. The direct drive sounds interesting too but isn't it just an ltd with more gain or does it sound more like my od808. I'd like something not so tube screamerish, but I need some midrange in there to get those sustainy leads and also something that sounds nice on the clean channel for jazzy or bluesy type stuff. Also, keep it in the $100 +/- range. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
