  • What hot rodded Marshall type pedal should I get?

    I love my AMT P2, but the only gripe I have about is the fact that I can't seem to dial out the compression in the midrange frequencies. I like playing on the neck humbucker of my number 1 in the split position while playing solos and stuff, and the 5150 sound just doesn't seem to play well with the dynamics of the single coil sound. I hear less congestion and compression in the mid range frequencies of a recorded Marshall type amp, so I figure that could be a good addition to my sonic arsenal.

    The rhythm tone (done with the bridge humbucker) I'm looking for is Blackout era Scorpions.

    I prefer a preamp type pedal, but I'm open to suggestions. Something under $220 preferably.

    What amp will you be running it into?

    For the 'Marshall in a box' type pedals I always liked the Crunchbox and the Brown Sound in a Box II that I've owned in the past.

      the new crunch box is nice. lots of versatility. fwiw, i really love the mxr super badass, as it's got a very well designed 3 band eq. marshally tones, works great with lots of amps, clean boost to high gain, etc. it's not terribly compressed at lower/medium gain settings.

      i also am loving the bogner red, but that seems much pickier about amps. through a fender, it's incredible.

        Carl Martin single channel Plexitone is really nice , lots of gain on tap if needed

              I know it's higher priced than you're looking for, but the Bogner Extasy Blue is something you should look into.
              Wanted: 1982 Gibson Les Paul Standard, Serial Number 82232531.

                    I was thinking about one of these or a Tech 21. Still considering everything though.

                            MXR Custom Badass '78 Distortion. Really good amp distortion sound. I also hear that the MXR Super Badass Distortion is good at anything from fuzz tones, to slight overdrive, to death metal distortion.

                              wampler plexidrive, plextortion, and pinnacle all get great marshall tones. for blackout era scorps i'd try the plextortion 1st.
