fender twins and slide

Recommended Posts

any slide players out there using a fender twin or pro reverb? Im just curious as to what type of effects your using to aquire what type of tones. I like warren haynes strat sound and the pro reverb is not famous for good overdrive, although the amp has an incredible clean sound. I normally use a small glass, actually its a fuel filter off my motorcyce, and Im playin with my G&L strat any suggestions on tones and overdrive pedals or pre amps?

A twin reverb is a great amp, but not typically used by slide players.

Warren....Duane....Derek all use Marshalls. You want a good overdrive amp for slide. Your setup is real clean...a G&L and a Twin.

Im sure you can use a good overdrive/distortion pedal to give you some grit with that amp. There are plenty of choices out there.

I use a M I Audio Crunch Box that works great. My typical effects are a MXR carbon copy delay pedal and the Crunch box.

I hear ya on the marshall and so on. but I got a great deal on the twin. Im almost ashamed to tell anyone what I paid for it. But, It was REAL CHEAP!. anyway I have digitech rp6 which is ok for some EQ and compression, but right now im using a digitech BAD MONKEY for my OD. Its ok but still havent got the sound I want but Ill keep at it

The Bad monkey is a good overdrive....but you need some Grit.......a distortion box like a MI Audio Crunch box will give you that.

It honestly sounds like a hot Marshall cranked. Its not like a heavy Metal distortion more like a gritty Old Marshall.
