> The Marshall Bluesbreaker is one of my first pedals I got around ‘94. It’s very transparent and gets along well with most of my amps. I was unaware people were cloning this pedal nowadays but can understand why. > It has a way of bringing out the good qualities in an amp and it’s perfect for lead boosts. It trades places with an OCD ver.3 that I also picked out of a batch I was testing.more
"10th June 2013 at Red Lion, Isleworth, Middlesex (gig with Derek Nash). The photo shows (left to right) a Marshall Bluesbreaker (which emulates the sound of the combo amplifier of the same name), a DigiTech EX-7 Expression Factory, Line 6 DL-4 Delay Modeler Pedal, an Ernie Ball VP JR (volume pedal), TC Electronic PolyTune (tuner) and a Boss CH-1 Super Chorus (makes sounds of similar timbre and pitch converge as one)"more
This is my go to for pretty much all overdrive, but I tend to use it for leads now. It has just the right amount of bite and tone for me, plus I love the look.
I got this bad boy off of Reverb and love the tones I can get from it with a Boss 7-Band EQ. I just keep the bands flat and raise the level. Works great as a booster as do a lot of other things on my board. I switched the OG knobs for some blue MXR knobs, looks badass!!! \m/ (-_-) \m/
The very best pedal that I used for making indie rock and some blues pieces of U2 songs just the end part of "Angel of Harlem" , "when love comes to town" and "heartland"..
