xx Pedal for SLO?
« Thread started on: Aug 4th, 2014, 4:27pm »

Hey guys. This is probably a stale, old question but: any suggestions for a boost pedal to use with an SLO on the crunch channel? Looking for for a little more juice--but not the OD channel (I know, sacrilege). Anyone use a Tube Screamer in this way? Other pedals?

Bring it.

Digitech Bad Monkey, the USA version. It is really awesome. You'll pay a little extra for the USA version, but it's worth it.

Never cared for ANY Tube Screamer derivative at all including Full Tone, Maxon, or Ibanez etc...

KLON for me at all times, but ZERO gain. I use it as a boost and sustainer.

MXR GT-OD for the tube screamer mojo.
Keep the OD down and drive the level and you can rock the 80's and classic rock tones all night long. grin

I play a single channel Hot Rod 50 but like you I want a little more bite to it and I use a BOSS GE-7 EQ pedal set like in the photo. They can be a tad noisy. I modded it with one of Monte Allums' kits and that quieted it down significantly. I run a BOSS NS-2 Noise Suppressor so any added noise is really a moot point. The amp sounds good by itself but this gives my tone a nice edge.

I have settled on keeping only one boost. It is an Analogman King of Tone version 4. There is a long wait list for them, but it's a good pedal. One of the reasons I like my Soldano is that I don't have to use a boost, but I do agree that sometimes the "crunch" could use a bit more crunch.

I really like the Menatone Red Snapper for that. No TS genes. Low to med gain. Healthy output. Wonderfully transparent.

The KoT v4 is equally goood but gives a different coloration.

Cool, thanks guys! Trick is gonna be tryin to find stuff to demo at my place, with my rig.

But yeah, it'd be swell to have a "three channel" set-up so to speak: crunch, boosted/pushed crunch, and then the OD channel proper. Man, the crunch channel could use just a tad more gain (sometimes). Sounds like some of y'all are in that boat too. I wouldn't even consider a pedal for tone/gain until recently; with an SLO the notion just seemed ludicrous. Then I thought Well, it'd just be like adding another "channel", another color, another tool etc. Just push what's already there a little harder, same basic tone though. I'm rationalizing. True though.

Wait, any clips?

I gig with the Nova system by TC Electronics...It has a boost switch AND all the programmable effects and whistles. It is Soldano effects loop friendly and the two go together like titties and beer. After 2 years of hard gigging this system has become my best friend. I also use a Tube Screamer in front of the amp {not the loop}. My Soldano sounds like a Rottweiler on crack.

You can try an mxr 10 band eq it has a level and a gain switch you can adjust them too give you just the right amount of umph your looking for. I have one and it works well on either channel.

After owning three Klons (2-gold w/centaur, 1-silver) a little fuzzy sounding for me, better with JCM800. My favorite is my Analogman KOT v4! "Original" Just wonderful. Also have TS9/808 (Analogman Silver) for a different flavor. I've also owned about every "Boost, Overdrive, Distortion" out there but still come back to my KOT. Records real well, and live when I need a little more push the KOT articulates very nice with pick attack. I've owned it for seven years now, I also bought one for my son but his has all the options (when my number came up from AM) he also loves it for the purity of his SLO tone smiley

I'm using a Keeley modded Boss DS-1, (like Lynch) and it works fantastic!
