if you are into Blues Rock= Overdrives/Fuzz is good
if you are into standard clean Blues=good fenderish amp on clean mode, ala B.B King

I'd recommend those touch-sensitive ODs so you can accent some notes while playing. Add a touch of slapback delay and reverb to taste.  :drool:

Was it JB or EJ who said that all his pedals' controls are at 12 o 'clock?
ganda din dirt ni JB paired with his marshall.

It was JB, he said that here:

+1 doon sa touch/volume sensitive na OD pedals.

Pero going back to the topic, I use light compression > OD > clean OD > Plate reverb > a touch of tremolo (my not-so-secret-weapon anymore). Kung may matino kang tube amp, pwede nang wag ka na mag-OD pedal, drive mo nalang yun to taste

Yung tremolo, ika nga ni Joe Bonamassa sa video "adds a lot of soul". For me, parang tipong na-eemulate niya yung parang umiiyak or humihikbi na singer. :)

Try listening to feelin bad blues by ry cooder for a better illustration ng sinasabi ko. :)

My frankencaster thru a vox pathfinder 15r... for some solos and hard rythm i use my digitech bad monkey.

great for blues... syempre iba pa din ang cranked non master tube amp and vintage guitar combo...

pero happy na ko sa setup ko

I wish that monkey was a true bypass though
sleepless nights hunting for the perfect tone...
empty wallet because of GAS...
dropped out of school... low paying job... who cares! Long live rock and roll!!!

Kung gusto mo talaga ng tasty tone na kumpleto sa rekado, you need a wah, od, fuzz, and reverb, delay, chorus etc etc ikaw na bahala kung alin dyan ang kukumpleto para sayo  :mrgreen:

for me pag classic blues, OD lang tapos konting reverb sa amp... pag heavy texas blues naman ala zz top id sure use a distortion pedal with a hint of slap back delay to sweeten the sound

Gayahin mo na lang fave blues player mo. Anything goes naman kasi sa blues eh. Sa blues its more about the sound or message than the tone: texas blues, delta blues, etc. Songs that come from the heart. :) 

Anyways if i were to play blues id use: od, fuzz, wah.

Blues is about simplicity. Plug straight into an amp and dial the gain to your liking. OD Pedal for that boost in solos! After that it's up to you how to feel the Blues :)

friend of mine who i like to consider as a blusier guitarist than myself just brings his guitar to a gig, and plugs it right in - no matter what the venue and it's not even a blues guitar - he uses a yamaha rgx...


on my part i prefer using my lp special because the zebra pup + wah combo sounds heaps more osam than my obl's will ever be pag dating sa blues / blues rock...

Share ko lang.  on my end of the blues/blues-rock or what not tone...a clean amp at near break up level + an OD pedal (TS9 or Maxon is nice) at mild levels + a wah pedal at the open or high position + yer guitar using the neck pick-up.  Personally... it nails down the Razorback'esque ala Ripoll sound for me... The rest is just a matter of volume and tone knob sensitivity and of course...the bluesy feel. Hope that helps.
