I’m not talking about the amount of gain, but more the options for how you get it. I feel like I have ample options… an overdrive pedal, a fuzz pedal, a two channel amp. Sometimes I want a different sound of a different overdrive, but usually change my mind.
But I see more and more people with 4-5 different gain pedals on their board, plus an amp with a distortion channel. Sometimes more! I wish these folks offered up more audio examples of how they use all the different pedal combinations.
What about the rest of you? Do you have a lot of gain options on your board? Are you using them for different amounts of gain? Different tones? Something else?
