I used a Maxon OD808. I also remembered something Andy mentioned in the Noise 101 Wiki about getting the guitarists to "pick closer to the bridge." So, I tried that and it certainly made a difference. But I still can't get over just how little EQ was needed.... that & I finally got an ENGL cab. They're next to impossible to find in Canada... I had to go over to Michigan to get this one & I got damn lucky. It was used in a "near mint" condition.
