    It's a ripper, isn't it? That cab works with dirty Marshalls and similar too. It's got a really great 'focus'.

    Fender's Hammertone Metal pedal through the Brit JM45

    Thanks! I'm a closet metalhead, you know. Deftones, Obscura, Sabbath ...tons of others ... all get a run here. I mix and match listening between heavy classical stuff, Sergio Mendez, Bacharach, Smiths, Zappa... I can't be pinned down. Keeps it interesting for me.

    Fender's Hammertone Metal pedal through the Brit JM45

    Yeah, that's kind of true. The questionable bit is that I don't really regard it as a tube* amp. It can and does deliver what a tube amp does, but to me it's just an 'amp' - without classification. I own a dozen or so classic tube amps - HIWATT, Vox, four or five Marshalls, Fenders, VASE, Carl...

    Fender's Hammertone Metal pedal through the Brit JM45

    Treble boosters, old-school fuzzes and overdrives (anything pre-1970, really) go into the front input because they're not friendly with buffers. That Input, despite often being in the red when those sorts of pedals are engaged (especially Range Masters), has zero problems and I don't think I've...

    Fender's Hammertone Metal pedal through the Brit JM45

    Yeah, I'll make another clinical demo when I get back from overseas. Basically, though, you're looking at a Brit JM45 with the gain down to 9:00 o'clock and the Bright switch off. All tones at around 2:00 o'clock except Bass which is wound right back.

    Fender's Hammertone Metal pedal through the Brit JM45

    Thanks, Dave. It might be even better with a bass player and a little more time. Still, the mighty Axe. Every single day it gives me something.

    Fender's Hammertone Metal pedal through the Brit JM45

    @FractalAudio, I have no idea which circuit, if any, Fender base their 'affordable' Hammertone Metal pedal on. It sounds kind of funky alone, but it sure seems to sit well in a mix. Here with the Brit JM45 model. Might be a good one to add down the track.
