I run an MXR Custom Comp Deluxe pretty much with all knobs dimed inro a Digitech Hardwire Sc-2 Valve Distortion through a lightly distorted Carvin VT-50 (Nomad) head that has the Hasserl Mods. That amp is super sick and a lot of the time I will just use the distortion on that. The compressor through the hardwide pedal through a lightly distorted amp is just my super distortion sound. With enough distortion, compressor and just a tad of delay, you basically can not hit wrong notes while playing fast because no one would ever here it if you you play enough notes :D
I attached photos for reference.

I've had several pedals over the years. My first ones were Ibanez soundtanks - a Powerlead and Thrash Metal. I also had a DOD pedal but I don't remember which one it was Those were used when I was a teenager and couldn't afford a decent amp. I do wish I still had the Thrash Metal, I remember it sounding pretty good.

Now I use a Tube Screamer TS-808 reissue. I use it with my Marshall DSL15H when I need that extra bit of push on the clean channel.

And all this is rockin' with my Carvin CS6.

Do you say "HOE-tone" or "HOT one"? :)

Oh, and someday I'll finish getting my old Ibanez Soundtank Powerlead re-housed in an aluminum enclosure. I've got all the parts, I just haven't found the time.


It's HOT TONE

If they wanted us to pronounce it with a short "O" instead of a long "O", they should have used two Ts.
