Hey all, I'm looking for a pedal, whether it be tube or SS to get some good alternative rythm tones. Im especially interested in using diode clippers in the Matchless Hotbox. Any ideas or comments on your favorite rythm distortion is appreciated, thanks.

With rhytmn guitar parts the EQ after any kind of clipping
device makes your tone really stand out. Like listen to some
U2 'broken fuzzbox' riffs and experiment with various distortion
boxes. Also by cascading different pedals you can make
new interesting tones. Anyway, I prefer any distortion
devices which are relatively modest in distortion and don't
produce much intermodulated (IM) distortion. TS-9 and
clones are fine, TSF not. The optoFuzz I've been developing
gave instant rhytmn tone sound for the 'You Really Got Me',
the old Kinks riff by Dave Davies (www.davedavies.com). So
look for a box with decent EQ or get one or more EQ boxes.

Btw. the "You Really Got Me" tone was made with an amp
named Elpico (green tiny SS amp) with razorblade radially
cut speaker(!), close miked and also connected from
speaker output to Vox AC30. Try that.
