Yup. Bad Monkey is a tubescreamer clone with a few changes. Digital modeling amps do not really take "pushing" that well and in worst case scenario may even clip the input stage (easily done with...

Tubescreamer has nothing to do with tube tone on its own. Its a solid state overdrive pedal that is used either to provide light clipping (which you orange is already capable of) or used to boost the...

I do have Cort EVL-Z4 and it is a damn fine axe! Only downside (other than EMG HZ pickups being shite) that I can say about it is that its a bit neck heavy for a Les Paul style guitar (probably due...

If its honest to god attenuator then you should get power tubes to distort too. Play the amp on clean and slowly turn the amp up in 1w mode and see when it starts to break up. Compare it to doing the...

My wild guess is that when down to 1w and you turn the volume up the phase inverter of the power amp starts to distort and compress? Gives you power amp distortion earlier compared to 20w. Unless...

Poland has MG Amplification. Small manufacturer but prices are still surprisingly affordable. They have both low gain and high gain metal amps. Probably clones of some famous circuits, not sure.

Only one I would advice against is their Noise Gate, unless they have fixed it. It is a tone sucker and it adds a bit of farty distortion on top, easy to spot on clean channel.
