"A lot of people know me for my lead distortion tones, but actually I've been using overdrive pedals since the Surfing record all the way up through the Chickenfoot record, the tour and even the new Chickenfoot sessions. The Ice 9 captures the best of my vintage and modern overdrive pedals, and it improves a lot of troubling issues intial pedals had. The Ice 9 is a great versatile sounding pedal and I'm having a great time using it on tour right now."more
When I first got my Fender Blues Junior amp I needed a pedal for overdrive as unless I got it up to high volumes I just couldn't et feedback and it has no switch. So I got recommended this Vox overdrive pedal while I was also buying (the essential Vox V847A WahWah pedal). I think we were just talking about Vox in general so I tried this Ice9 pedal and as a comparison I also tried the old Ibanez Tube Screamer. In the end I chose the Vox Ice9.I especially liked the extra shaping the Bass knob provides with the overdrive. The "More" switch gives an instant 15db boost which is handy for lead breaks when you find that you can't turn your volume up any further as well. All round a great pedal in my opinion. I'd miss it if I lost it put it that way! :-)
