Batteries For Stomp Boxes

I don't like to use pedal effects (or stomp boxes) for my guitar because they get in the way of my tone. I picked my guitars based on the sound they made before I even plugged them in. I try to keep as much of that purity in the final sound as possible. I like the amp to do all the coloring of the tone. Straight into the amp is really the best way to get a pure tone. Too many cords take away tone as well. And I ditched my wireless when I realized how much it changed my sound. With that said, I do use one pedal. It's a Pro Co Rat distortion pedal. (the vintage one) With the distortion set at 9:00 it works as an overdrive and gives me a perfect lead sound with just the right compression. And with my Tele on the bridge pickup I can get really expressive with bends and volume swells. Now here's the part where you're going to think I'm nuts. I only use Eveready batteries. Duracell gives me a different tone than I like and using a power supply really goofs it up. I also like the size of the knobs. It's real easy to adjust the volume with my foot when I need that extra push over the edge.

    I've worked with Jerry for years and over different sound systems his tone changes so it is the little things that matter!

    You are the second person who has said that different batteries sound different in an effects pedal. Eric Johnson is the other one.

    There are several ways on how we want to use our guitars. But that doesn't matter as long as you know how to handle it. We may differ in so many ways, but we should focus on what's good, isn't it? The idea about these batteries is for us to have an option. By the way, this is the very first time I've seen a Pro Co Rat distortion pedal. I am looking forward to know how to make use of it. Perhaps an article on https://bestwritingsclues.com/reviews/college-paper-review/ would help me!
