I'm looking for a pedal that duplicates the clean, twangy, reverby sound of sixties guitar -- the tone, say, of the guitar in the early James Bond soundtracks....or vintage surf guitar....you know what I mean?
There must have been pedals marketed and touted as specifically recreating this vintage sound...what are the good ones?

Do you know who played the twangy guitar on the original James Bond theme?

That was Vic Flick, he used a Clifford Essex Paragon Deluxe Jazz guitar with an DeArmond pick up through an Dearmond volume pedal and a Vox 15 watt amp. There's a 'new' release (I think 2000)called Bond in action. I'm not an expert or a fan, but found this info in the dutch Guitarist magazine (Gitarist maart(march) 2000)

That's good info. There's gotta be something that claims to digitally model that tone...anyone?

I just picked up an EH Holy Grail reverb pedal which does a good job w/ that "reverby" aspect of what you're going for. Its analog, and draws too much current to run on batteries. It sure beats hauling around a Fender tube reverb unit....

A nice Fender/Vox/Hiwatt clean sound with some reverb and tremolo on top of it will get you started.
