So I got this pedal for my crappy Line 6 amp and it sounded great, lots gain and harmonics.
Then I upgraded to the Mini Rectifier and the pedal doesn't sound the same. It's dull ,lifeless horrible.
Messed with settings and put it before over drive pedals etc. just doesn't sound right. Shame as I loved it before and it's a lot of money just to throw away. Any tips?

Just tried it with my little Roland cube and sounded great... Maybe I should really experiment and try it first in the chain etc...

When used with the real thing, the Throttle Box won't sound as impressive. 8)

First, describe your signal chain. We need to know what you are using and how you are using it.

Are you using it into the clean channel?

Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.

I'm going to assume you're running the pedal out front, as opposed to in the loop, where eq pedals really do their magic. I've never gotten satisfying results out of running an eq before the preamp. Try putting it in the loop.
