Watch the Gear Talk online guitar lesson by Robert Renman from Blues Booster
The gear I used in this course is very minimal. A Fender American Standard Stratocaster (2013), a Fender Princeton Reverb, and a KOi Overdrive from KO Amps at http://www.koamps.com. I like this pedal a lot, because it provides a very smooth sounding overdrive tone. The amps I use at home are either Fender style, or Marshall Plexi style. I usually set my amps to a little bit of crunch, and then add pedals between guitar and amp as needed.
