Yesterday I had a gig with that brand new 2016 Les Paul Trad T, and I have decided to live without a pedalboard, the weight, the power cable in front of you, ...
So I say, only the wha my good old BB Preamp overdrive, a tuner (because it was the first time I played this Les Paul, so I didn't know how she will stay in tune; very well by the way)

**** happens, and my BB Preamp has failed the day before the show, no time to check for repair, so I pick a Maxon OD-808 from my old pedal.
And you know what, I got my tone, what a pleasure to have almost nothing in front of you except the audience.
All the controls via the Vol and Tone of the guitar.
Less is more really

That's the way to go Awel. I only own two pedals an Overdrive and a wah wah and I rarely use those, in fact I haven't ever used them live but I may do one day.

Totally agree with you but with a Fender amp, except if you are Bonamassa, and you put your Twin volume on 8 and of course play in stadium, it is difficult to avoid an OD pedal :-)

Yes Awel, but I use a Fender Blues Junior, I find it's plenty load enough for venues that I play in and I can get all the distortion that I need by using the two volume controls.

Joe Bonamassa explains it well here:

Yes already seen this video, I use to have a junior and I like the sound but was always afraid if I have to play in a bigger venue that I miss some watts.
That's why I have Supersonic 22w, which has 2 channels, I could use the drive channel and avoid the od, but I like the taste of an external od pedal on the clean channel

Possible double post, but well worth the 15 minutes it takes:
