Asking Distortion/Overdrive pedal advice
Hi, I have been following posts about the DS-1, modded DS-1's, SD-1's, you name it. I have also looked at the DOD YJM-308, a replica of an older DOD 250. I run a JEM 7VWH w/stock Evo's straight into an ADA MP-1 with JJ's at 116 or so gain. I have heard raves about the DS-1 in front of Legacy's, Marshalls, etc, but am wondering what would be cool in front of the ADA for a little more saturation? Anyone have any experience here? I could buy a bunch of crap from GC and return what I don't want, but would rather see some input here. I like 80's tone, thats why I have the ADA. So please base your opinions on that :P I have a hard time understanding whether it's distortion or overdrive I want/need more in front of the preamp.
