Hello,

I was going to buy a pedal but then someone said to me that overdrive pedals do not really effect this amp. I need to know because I want to buy a pedal.

I play thrash/heavy metal and just need to use it to boost my solos. I don't need any volume increase just need more mids and treble and stuff like that. So basically, is this amp OK with overdrive pedals?

Thanks alot!

The gain channel on the HT-5 is pretty compressed. I found that using an OD didn't have much affect. If you are using the gain channel to play metal I doubt there will be anything left to boost.

Bad monkey is your best bet then. Good little OD unit.
