Guys - thanks - especially Brad! I am using a Twin 100-wat head into a JBL K-120 (I was using it into a 2x12, but recently tried and liked the upward impedance mismatch) - and I am CLOSE - but yes when I listen back my clean tone is just a bit too "sterile" and thin - so - for now - I guess using my Earth Drive "on" all the time would be the way to go - should I turn down the tone on the pedal or just use the overdrive at 10:00 or so? I am up for suggestions! when I use dirt pedals, this rig is great, but I would like very much to have a better clean tone!
My ED settings are:
Volume - 2ish
Drive - 10ish
Tone - 2ish
And I leave it on even when I kick in another drive pedal. It's the last of the drive pedals in the chain, so when I kick in an additional drive pedal, it has the added benefit of smoothing out the fuzziness of the previous pedal.
