Ok, here is my next look at the overdrive situation for my alembic guitars. I just wondered if anyone tried one of these twin tube overdrive pedals from AMT with an alembic guitar.

This could be the pedal that works best with my alembics. It has a lot of saturation and compression in the lead tone which is what I like about my Rat Pedal when used on my non alembic guitars. I emailed the manufacturer this week and although it is listed as a pre-amp, it can still be used in line with normal effects pedals.
It's not cheap but it seems to have a pretty comprehensive tone section and three modes and to my ears sounds decent.

Any views?

Here is another Twin Tube pedal I'm investigating

Last weekend I bought a Twin Stomp S21 Overdrive pedal made by a small family business here in England which whilst is a good sounding pedal, it doesn't have the saturation I like in it and also the tone control is quite limited and seems to have more sweep in the brighter end of the range than the mellower lead tones I prefer since I use the neck pickup for lead rather than the bridge.

Thankfully the company agreed that I can have a refund if not entirely happy with the sound so I'm gonna give it a last try this weekend with my fender Twin amp and Orion guitar.
