Hi guys, I'd like to finally be able to use my Orange Micro Terror any time of the day. It's only 5W (tube) but it's already loud enough to get troubles from the whole neighborhood. It has gain, but not enough to really comfortably play with it at a low volume. With gain for soloing I need to set it up at 0.05 master volume or something if I don't want my neighbors to come kill me in the next 5mn. So, i'll finally buy a TS to put in front of it. I was thinking of the maxon TS808, any other idea ? Should I just go with the cheapest one since their schematics are basically all the same, or will there be a difference in quality between units ? (yes, I read most of the TS thread right here) Also, I was thinking, I wouldn't mind a more "colorful" pedal as well, which would handle more of the actual distortion when I want something more different or original or high gain than the orange crunch. Something to smoothen it out a little bit, maybe for soloing. I could go for a more expensive unit if it was worth it, something more subtle, or with more character. Like another preamp for my tiny setup. Having a 50 or 100W head is absolutely out of the question, for many reasons. Do any of you know the VEMURAM Karen ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qgznKo0Uo0 it supposedly imitates the vintage JCM channels and it sounds quite nice to me. The Bogner overdrive, distortion, clean boost pedals ? (what is advertised in them, is that Rupert Neve would have done part of the full analogue circuit) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIdzZPl5QKM Other nice video to compare them : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qh8HAo62gPo What about an actual Mesa Boogie or whatever distortion box ? Or is that all overpriced marketing shit and should I stick to a simple TS to drive my 5W head ?
