Does anyone use an OD with an Überschall or any other high gain amp? When I'm on the gain channel with the gain around 12-1, the amp sounds amazing.
I've tried using a Fulltone OCD for a boost. I've kept the amp gain up and turned the pedals drive all the way down. Can't get that much character out of twiddling the tone knob. I've also turned the amps gain down and used the OCD to drive the amp. Don't think it sounds as good as the amp's gain.
Will any other OD, i.e. Maxon 808, Ibanez TS, etc, make a difference?
Have a friend who says the same thing happens with his Engl Powerball. Just doesn't need an OD.

I use and OD at various times for various guitars and amps. I use a Maxon OD808 and a Digitech Bad Monkey. They're great for hitting the front end harder but also for getting rid of low end rumble that takes away from definition. It's basically mimicking what recording engineers do when tracking hi gain guitars by removing the lowest frequencies so it doesn't get muddy and tighten up the sound.
