I've heard that distortion pedals don't work to well with SS amps, on the dirty channel. Does that also apply to tube amps? I'm thinking about getting the Peavy Windsor 100w tube will that sound good with a distortion pedal? Becasue it's hard to get a clean sound out of the is amp.
So, no one has this amp and has used a distortion pedal on it?
I am pretty sure you are suppose to use the distortion pedal on the clean channel, not the overdrive/distortion channel.
what i was saying is that with this amp, that even on the clean channel there is still crunch, so would dist. pedal still sound good?
i don't know about distortion pedals but it's pretty common knowledge that overdrive pedals sound great with overdriven tube amps, so you could always use an OD pedal. As for distortion pedals, they would probably have the same effect as a really over-the-top overdrive, so I don't think it would sound bad. Just experiment and see if it works. If not, you could always get a really powerful overdrive pedal.
They work well with both. However they have a deeper crunch on a Tube. No comparison.
