When did Jerry start using an OD pedal and what was it? Was it in 74 and the Distortion +? Really like 73/74 and 77/78 tone, Alligator & Wolf. Looking for a low gain OD to get that tone when he had a little hair to it. Outside of the Earth Drive and Distortion + what would be some recommendations? Looked through past threads and saw some other options but maybe there is something new. Have been looking at the Timmy, Liquid Sunshine, DOD 250, BF Honey Bee, MP Sweet Honey....
Why not get the Earth Drive? It was made for what you want...and you're supporting Brad, a contributing member of this forum!
Alas, if the Earth Drive is not your thing for whatever reason, I would think many "open," "transparent" low gain OD's could get you there. Of your list I have only used the Timmy--hard to go wrong with this one. It's inexpensive and very versatile.
For lead tones from that era I think you need to stick with the Dist + or something in that vein (Solar Flare).
