    not sure what he uses for his twins but i think he uses 30w celestions in the dirty rhythm cabs and 80w celestions in the lead cab
    I dunno...now ya got me thinking! I did find this review of the Dover Drive in which the reviewer says it "emulates Eric Johnson’s sound of stacking a Tube Driver with a Fuzz Face." Here's the review.

    Hermida Audio Dover Drive | Tone Report

    Eric has changed his rig a bunch over the years tho.

    He used a Boss HM-2 Heavy Metal pedal for a while in the 80s and an MZ-2 Metallizer in the 90s. Never heard of him running an MT-2 though . . .

I've never heard him mention them in interviews. He does have some Vintage 30's in those Marshall cabs bu they're not all Vintage 30's. I forget what other speakers he uses. Maybe EV's or JBL's?

    When I saw him in Fort Collins this winter I stood right at the front of the stage between sets and spent a few minutes checking out all of his stuff close up.

    I've seen him a bunch of times though. That was the best band he's ever put together. Roscoe Beck on bass and Tom Brechtlein, who's played with Chick Corea and a jillion great bands, on drums and he had a second guitarist/keyboard player who could hold his own on guitar with any band. Forget his name but he played his a$$ off.

    That is what the channel switching button or the gain pot is for.

    I hear ya though. I am just being silly but my point still stands.

    But back on topic . . . a pair of Arion Tubulators, running in series, was a killer distortion sound. When MF was blowing them out for $10 ea., it was a sweet pedal for $20. I still have one.
    Something like that was my first delay & looper, too. I didn't realize that has been done for years by people like Brian Eno. But man, it sounded great.

    David Gilmour was pretty well known for stacking gain pedals. A lot of his fuzz sounds are a big muff into a just slightly gainy powerbooster or tube driver. I'm not sure if he does it to combine the character of the two pedals, to add mids, to cut some of the wilder highs/lows . . . but he definitely does it.
    I think that he may have even used an MT-2 on the opening riff of "Sorrow".

    also... does he actually stack the tube driver and the fuzz face? seems like his rig is clean rhythm (twin reverbs with delays and chorus) dirty rhythm (marshalls with tube screamer, fuzz face, flanger, and delay) then lead (marshalls with wah, echoplex, and tube driver)

    For me, it is all about sustain and touch sensitivity more than chasing tone. I would reference the solo in Comfortably Numb the notes go on forever.

    I play with it a lot these days. But yes - I have always had either a single amp or pedal that did the job for me. But I totally understand what people are doing. They are essentially making unique multiple gain stages, which is what a great amp does.

In my experience, the more pedals you add the more potential problems you open yourself up to and the more noise you introduce. All these "problems" of course are fixable but why even go there?

    I'm surprised I didn't remember Eric Johnson! He stacks a Butler Tube Driver and Fuzz Face to get his signature violin tone. I use a Dover Drive to get a very similar tone and Eric hand a hand in the design of that pedal. At about 1:15 you can hear the violin tone.



    And the violin tone is all through this old video. Stacked Tube Driver and Fuzz face. Kicks in at about the 1:00 mark. My Dover Drive gets real close to this tone without having to stack a Tube Driver and Fuzz face. Eric even uses a Dover Drive on his small, simple pedal board that he uses for clinics.

    As you said: only some people, too set in their ways to see any other.
