im sure that somewhere on here there is a discussion about this but i thought i would open it up again. what kind of drive/ distortion pedals did jer use? it seems like there is just enough distortion to get the effect but his tone is always very light and clear. i tried a tube screamer to try to match it but it never sounds close to me. i saw something about him using a boss overdrive somewhere but im not sure how accurate that is and i have heard mixed responses as to the tone and quality of that pedal. what are all of you using? i was lookin at different mxr pedals, is that a good start? what are some other cool effects you like personally? this might be a good free for all pedal talk actually. let me know what you all are thinking.
