Distortion adds a consistent crunch or grit to what you're playing. Whereas an overdrive takes your original tone and pushes it harder, a distortion pedal changes the sound completely and saturates the signal. ... Fuzz alters the waveform into a square wave and can almost makes your amp sound like it's broken.
Overdrive after fuzz = a louder fuzz tone, with additional distortion if the overdrive gain is turned up. This is a cleaner way to use the two together, because the overdrive can be used basically as a boost if the OD gain is low. ... Typically it's overdrive first.
Analog pedals still pass signal through them when not powered and not active. Digital pedals will not do this. Take any power supply out of the pedal, make sure the pedal is off, and if you still have signal you've got an analog pedal.
Unlike overdrive and distortion units, you can run boost pedals either in front of your amp or through its effects loop (if it has one). Running a boost through the front of your amp may be a good choice if it has its own unique character.
Signal Flow That makes the order of your effects almost as important as the kind of effects you put on your pedalboard. While there's no right way to arrange your pedals, the most common arrangement looks like this: guitar → gain stage → frequency → modulation → time → amp.
David uses a MXR Dyna Comp and you can see it in his live rig photo earlier on the far left. The far blue pedal in that live rig is a BOSS CS-2 compressor. When a compressor is used with a fuzz distortion, it smooths it out and adds some warmth.
Gilmour has used a variety of Delay and Echo units including Binson Echorec, TC 2290, and a pair of humble Boss DD2 delays. He uses delay in a variety of ways, either as adding ambiance to solos and soundscape effects, or as a rhythmic effect for tracks such as “Run Like Hell” and “Another Brick in the Wall”.
In Gilmour's own guitar, the neck and middle pickups were the pickups that came with the guitar but the bridge pickup was a custom pickup made by Seymour Duncan which is now in production as the SSL-5 pickup.
Possibly the most illustrious user of this version of the G12H was Jimi Hendrix, who started out using the G12M, but switched to the G12H for its higher power rating and then made full use of its deeper, richer tones, enabling many of his famous solos that slide effortlessly from intense, rumbling lows to searing highs ...
Distortion generally means it does this with high gain and heavy compression so there is lots of clipping, giving a harsher tone, and Overdrive generally means it's low gain with less signal alteration to give a "softer" more open sound. So no, you don't need both.
