so it was my birthday today and i got a load of money and basically would my amp (line 6 30 watt spider 3) sound any better if i ran an overdrive/distortion pedal through the clean channel?
or would it not sound much different to the metal/insane channels?
the main idea is for me to have an easy way to switch from the clean to the distorted channels, so shud i just get a footswitch for it?

sorry for the confusing order
Well it really depends on your preference. Go try a bunch of stomp boxes and see if you really like one. If you do, scoop it up. If you really like the amp's channel distortion and no pedals really tickle your fancy, grab a foot switch. Its up to you man.

no man never put a od/ds through a modeling amp ive did it sounds........****e
