Re: [Harp-L] That great "Bluesy" stage sound

Neither delay or reverb are going to get you that "bluesy" rash sound. In it's purist form; it's the sound of an overdriven microphone plugged into a tube amp that is driving the power tubes to distortion through a speaker or speakers that are at some degree breaking up.

Hope everyone's having a good day... This may be a simple question, but I'd like to know through experience how that "bluesy" rash sound over an amp can be attained. I know lots of people use it (not sure of the term)- recently heard Sonny Terry of Houston use it. Since I have been playing for 1 ½ years now, I want to try working with different sounds. I have a small Peavey amp that only has volume, gain, and simple settings, but no reverb or delay on it. Therefore, I'm looking at getting the Behringer DR400 or DD600 (the DR has delay and reverb) to connect it to. Any comparable products out there that being used? Anyone have any ideas what to do/get or setups for around $50-100.
