Basically Im upgrading to a Marshall jcm 800 2203 sick amp but I hate that it's one channel. Anyway that I could get a distortion pedal and have a certain eq for that then turn the pedal off and have a certain eq for that?

All help is appreciated
One channel amps are really responsive to your guitars volume knob. roll it back for cleans. Also pick lighter/softer for a cleaner less clipped sound


the detox EQ is perfect for one channel amps
Heres how PaulGilbert Uses it
paul uses it for his one channel amps. gets him a cleaner sound
IE perfect for your situation. ill even use it for my two channel amps on the low gain channels to get a faster cleaner sound if i cant find my footswitches

Anyways you want an OD pedal to push you jcm800 further along imo.
I traded in my Real Books for Robbins and Cotran Pathology Textbooks

2203s have so much dynamics that with the gain cranked all the way up, just by picking lightly you get a clean sound.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Thanks for the help you guys and with the eq pedal could I change eq on the clean channel just like the amps eq?
I've heard about that one but one they sound noticably different n 2 I can't find one anywhere I played it at my friends house n he got his years ago

Isn't there a dual channel JCM800?
Why not get that?

They're not as good, IMO.

I use an Ernie Ball VP Jr. in front of my MXR 108 in a true bypass loop to have a footswitchable clean channel with some EQ adjustments.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.
