I am in the process of putting together a small jerryish influenced rig. Waiting happily for my SMS to arrive. Right now, I have a tonetubby purple haze and I am working with a cheap version of a single rack space linear amp, (artsla-1, comments welcome on a different forum) with hopes to eventually end up with a mc50, just for the unique tone. In the meantime.... I was wondering what your approach to the jerryish sound was with the dcm200l. Are you using any kind of "clean" overdrive pedal to simulate amp limiting/clipping/breakup? I am drawn toward total volume control without tone change. I play in a variety of settings from livingroom to "crank it up up up." In an attemp to build a super clean machine, I am wondering how people with linear amps add a touch of color towards jerryness. - Jim ..oh, I am getting Brads Earth driver as well with the sms.
I'm not Searing, but I have an SMS and Carvin, and I use an EHX Soul Food always on, dialed in for boost and a touch of grit, puts a little hair on the tone when I dig in.
It really helps at lower volumes, the Carvin sounds too clean without it, IMO.
