Re: Suggestions for a Effect-of-the-month Club?
Try using your compressor as a "boost" into a tube amp. That is, set the output level to its maximum to try and push the front end of your amp. I can do this with my Ross Comp into a Fender Blues DeVille, but I'm lucky, the Ross is real quiet, others may not be so lucky. With this approach I achieve a clean tone that can push my amp into feedback. It sound great, albeit limited.
