Dear all,

I've been playing and loving my JJ-100 for several years now and it is has basically killed my amp GAS. At least for high gain.

What I still need is a Vox-type of edge of break-up / overdriven sound. Since the JJ's clean channel is always said to be AC30-like but doesn't do break up, has anyone tried and found a pedal that would give me that kind of AC30-ish overdriven tones? I'm aware of the limitations due to differences in pre- and power amp tubes etc. but ballpark would be enough for me :)

Many thanks and have a nice weekend!

I find that throwing on my buxom boost in front of the clean channel drives more break up on my jj-100 than it does on say my jj junior or my buxom betty combo... And I try to run my JJ-100 as clean as I can on that channel.

Check out a Pigtronix Class A Boost if you get a chance; they can be had for cheap and will Vox-ify almost any amp. Killer pedal
