Guitar, cable to IN of pedal, cable from OUT of pedal to Amp. Simple and you can have distortion as well as amp distortion sure.

So you need 2 cables

The tiny one will be for a power supply so you don't need batteries.

Don't know anything about this one..But it looks vintage wink.gif There should be a battery compartment somewhere..3 holes represent : on the right where it says IN you should plug a cable coming from your guitar to that hole smile.gif On the left side you should plug in another cable and go with it to your amps input..That 3rd tiny hole is for power supply (9v I guess)..You need to power the pedal in order for it to work..Either you plug your power supply there or you find a battery compartment which houses 9v brick battery..You don't need a distortion pedal because amps distortion is generally better..But you can experiment with this pedal to push it even more , or to use as a solo boost..I don't think its worth selling.. wink.gif

Not really to be honest. Under £10 ($20) for a cheap one.

Actually many people mix the amps distortion with an additional distortion pedal, I did this myself when I was still using my old Marshall. The old JCM 800 heads didn't really have enough distortion so I used an Ibanez Tubescreamer with it to get my sound.

Hey Marcus sorry for the off topic, but since you played JCM800 and playing Mesa now can you do some some comparisons of these two amps. Thanks! smile.gif

Well, back then I wanted a Marshall, it was just THE metal amp tongue.gif It was a normal 50 Watts JCM 800 with master volume, no extras, no nothing, a very basic amp. As I said above I had to use a Tubescreamer with that Marshall since the old Marshalls form that time didn't have as much distortion as I wanted, this was way before those Highgain monsters that you can buy today, the distortion had maybe AC/DC level. Something that I always found funny about Marshalls is that in my opinion there are only 2 kinds of Marshalls... the ones that sound great and the ones that sound VERY bad ;-) Mine belongs to the first category, I used it on the first 4 BG albums and I still have it, I don't play it anymore though. And my Rectifier, well, when I played it I immediately knew I just found MY amp, it is the perfect amplifier for me. Compared to the Mrshall it has the effects loop, it has 2 channels, it has more gain than I need, and it is the most powerfull amp I know. Another nice thing about Boogies is that most of them sound pretty good, not exactly the same, but from all the different Rectifers that I played so far (and I played A LOT on tour) only one sounded crappy, all the others were great, so Boogies seem to be a bit more reliable.
