Fender Blackface Twin, but personally, I'd go for a Plexi.

Hiwatt DR103 or Blackface Twin. Low-gain input of a JTM45 would work too.

My Twin RI takes pedals well. You'll have to use a bit of voodoo to get really good distorted sounds, but hey, it's all fun.

I disagree with the above poster. Air Jordans saturate too quickly to work well with pedals.

But the Ed Hardy jeans make the tone smooth enough to get just enough headroom. Still not the ideal situation.

I'd agree with the BF Twin comment. I can't speak for the others, but they work great for a pedal platform. Maybe a Dr. Z Maz 38 or EZG50 would be good if you're not looking for that much headroom.
