Whether you play with a huge bank of pedals or just a few, it is worth investing in an amplifier that will make them sounds as good as possible. The best amps for pedals should have a solid, clean, tone, plenty of extra head room, and relatively simple controls without a ton of extra features.
You can get all those sounds from your pedals. All you need is a good solid base to build off of, then you can develop your sound as you grow your pedal board. Distortion and other effects do not matter so much, as this will be provided largely by the pedals you plug in. If you are looking for a compact Marshall are a legend amongst musicians, having built an enviable reputation over the years. This amp continues in that This amp represents amazing value.
For quite a low price, the clean sound it produces works really well with any pedal This is simply a great tube amp, and represents amazing value. The history of this amp goes way back to , when The heart of this amp is pure Fender. It is based around 15W of rich, two-channel amplification that delivers quality on a par with far bigger and more expensive guitar amplifiers. The signature Fender sound is well displayed here, and as soon as you play through this amplifier you will realize why the brand has become such a favorite of musicians!
Our top pick. Depends how much juice the cabinets can take, how loud you need them for the gig, whether you want to use the other side of the amp for other duty. Nov 16, 4. Jan 9, Ft. Nov 16, 5.

Nov 16, They also provided the topology for a rather famous line of British amps that went on to further define the way rock guitar is supposed to sound more about this later…. As the volume is turned up, the Bassman simply growls - spitting out the most guttural, responsive grind known to man.
The crispy, responsive sound contains a hint of snarl and fat raunch that just begs to be pushed over the edge by a good boost, overdrive or fuzz pedal. Disengage those pedals for that righteous Tweed clean with a touch of hair, and roll back the volume on the guitar for a sumptuous clean sound.
Another amp manufacturer that has carved a niche for itself creating a range of single-channel designs based on earlier topologies, Matchless became the prominent boutique amp company in the s. Much of this was due to the integrity of engineering evident in every Matchless product - these are built well enough to impress an astronaut - but also to the fact that all of its amps carry a signature sound - a recognisable sizzle that found a home behind the likes of John Jorgenson, Earl Slick, Rich Robinson and Audley Freed.
No matter which flavour Matchless you end up with, that toothy top-end always has the ability to slice through a mix - and it is mated to an expressive responsiveness that really encourages and rewards a dynamic playing style. The Lightning is a watt EL84 single channel beast that gets rowdy very quickly.
Set the input gain between three and four and revel in that signature Matchless crunch - a crushed-glass top end definition minus the fizz of a Silverface Twin. Alternatively, you can back off the preamp and dime the master to find a lively clean bounce that never feels too far away from toothy grind. Those 15 watts are loud, too. The build quality, from cab construction to lead dress and component selection, is practically matchless - so to speak.
They also possessed a tighter bottom-end, a more detailed top-end and a slightly scooped midrange, making single coil-equipped guitars twang and jangle beautifully. They also offer up sumptuous jazz tones when paired with the likes of an ES This approach yields a singing blues tone that will thicken up single coil pickups wonderfully. With all of this in mind, perhaps the Super Reverb constitutes the perfect Fender amp? I believe this could be done with a single TRS input on the box, since you're just shorting the L or R to ground when you switch.
It would be a great way to get as much as you can from such a cool little enclosure Come to think of it, I just might do that when I build one for my C30!! Again, awesome instructable, you've helped me a lot!! I can follow what this box does, but I'm curious to know what signal the amp is looking for. Also, how did you figure this out? Is there a circuit diagram for the Vox jack, or did you just copy an existing footpedal?
I ask because I have one of their Valvetronix amps and would like to give this a try. Reply 11 years ago on Introduction. I don't quite follow your question on "what signal the amp is looking for". It's simply an array of switches.
I believe I found some 2 switch schematics that led me in the right direction and found this circuit to work perfectly. The stereo plug uses the TRS tip, ring, sleeve that is split into two mono plugs at the opposite end of the cable. I'd suggest buying one already made if you don't know how to make one. I didn't make mine either.Aug 25, · It just gives you a denser more cranked feeling to your existing guitar/amp, like cranking the output level to push speaker harder but without having to do a huge vol bump to do it.
