Overdrive placement in pedal chain
« on: April 15, 2012, 01:43:55 AM »
I  could never get my Wah to give a great growly wah tone, so rainy Sunday I thought I will have a fiddle.
 Instead of my Ibanez Tubescreamer going into my MI Audio Overdrive I swapped them round & the transformation is incredible, my Wah now has that great sweet spot at around three quarters toe down where it goes into a nice controlled feedback & has taken on a much nicer growl & the odd thing is the taper on the drive control on the MI TubeZone seems to work with more efficiency.
I would never have thought swapping pedals could make such a big change, fair enough I realize some pedals work better in certain positions in your chain but just swapping two overdrives around? :o
By the way my Wah is first in the chain.

I have put up a link to MI Audio R & D Lab Blog as Michael has some interesting stuff in the works.

That's a good idea.  I'll have to try that when I start looking for another od pedal to add to my chain since my strat needs a gain boost for soloing.
