    screamer alt

    So I just got my amp. It is my first all tube amp. I went with the Randall RD5 combo. I love the tone. But being a small amp it is kinda limiting. For instance it needs a boost. A tube screamer alternative is what it needs. Something that does not have a mid hump like the tube screamer. I play hard rock so I prefer scooped mids. Also my pickups in my guitar are kinda weak so a nice boost is what I need. I'm broke after the amp so I need some thing that is cost effective, but at the same time I do not want to buy junk. What would you suggest? Are the Joyo's pedals any good?

    Also...I need an eq pedal, once again are the joyo's 6 band any good? My randall has no eq on it. It only has a single tone know. It does have an effects loop though, so thats comforting.

    The other thing it needs is a Noise gate....joyo? Ya this amp is a tad bit noisy it may be the crappy pickupsin it, but then again tube amps are noisey to start with....joyo noise gate?

    danelectro fish and chips for an eq? would i regret buying all joyo pedals? I want decent pedals I just cant afford to pay 80-90 per pedal. I also need a delay pedal joyo? and dont point a gun to my head on this nextg one....behringer?

    Please suggests to me the best cost effective way to go for these pedals that I need and thank you in advance

    If you know how to use a soldering iron, you could try the Parametric Overdrive kit from BYOC.

    Parametric Overdrive – Build Your Own Clone

    It has a parametric EQ built in which makes it much more flexible than a screamer tonally. You can mod it for a more Tubescreamer vibe as well.

    The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No. ― Alan Moore

    I don't know about the other pedals but I had a Joyo noisegate and it flat out did not work. Maybe I had a dud. I'd save some money and go with the Hotone nano legacy series, a few Mooer pedals, the tc electronics mini line or the tone city mini pedals. All good, reliable stuff without breaking the bank.

    FWIW, a tubescreamer will not give you more mids, nor hinder you from getting a scooped-mid sound.

    The whole point of the TS boost is the mid hump(and cut bass) before the preamp.
