Lookin' For a Pedal (But I Havn't Found it Yet).
Pedal fans, I know I've probably asked this elsewhere but maybe not so...
"I've been lookin' for a pedal
But I haven't found it yet,
She'll be nothin' like I pictured her to be."
What I have: Squire Strat with dual Hummbuckers, small vintage cheapo Montgomery Wards Airline tube amp. That combination is nice and good at lower volumes for my fractured hearing but what I've long wanted but never fully pursued (i.e., coughed up the busk for) is a pedal to go between that will offer some added warmth but also with a little bit of gnarl to it as well. I'm thinking sort of warm distortion. My ears can't handle scream or hard or brittle or harsh or overly heavy tones, just something warm with a bit of crunchy purr if you will.
I don't want to replicate this sound but here's at least a hint of what I'm talking about. J's rhythm guitar in "Knocked Around":
"Hate your job, love your stuff
If you think that's living, you are
Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong"
