Post Pedals to use with a Laney VC50?
Hey guys. Just got a Laney VC50 in today but I'm not too impressed with its boosted lead sound, So I was thinking of getting a pedal or two and taking off the drive but leaving the gain full blast.
What pedals would you all recommend to try out(I'm going to bring my Laney into a local samash to try stuff out).
I was thinking the standard Tubescreamer, blues driver, BBE sonic stomp?

My friend has a VC50 and also isn't to pleased about the boosted sound either.
I think I read somewhere that a speaker change really can make a VC50 come to life.
as a booster I can recommend the maxon 808 or a cussack screamer over the ibanez tubescreamers or fulltone pedals like sean said.

Thanks guys!
I went samash today and tried a few pedals. Didnt like the Blues drive(boss) nor the tubescreamer.
I REALLY liked the Satchurator though. A lot.
But Ill def. have to try the fulltone OCD. They don't have those there. Anyone want to trade there OCD for my Saturator just to try it out?
