Well as the title suggests I'm planning on getting a 5f1 champ clone made for me. I just want to know how this amplifier takes pedals. I'll be using mainly reverb, delay, a tubescreamer, and maybe some chorus. Anything I should consider before finalizing this purchase? Thanks

EDIT: I almost forgot, I have the option of having either a Weber Sig 8A Alnico or Jensen Alnico P8Q speaker installed, anyone favor one over the other?

They will take pedals very well, like any old Fender. I boost mine with two tubescreamers, ala SRV. It works really well.
Do you know what transformers are going into it?
