Tried my pedals artec soloist into zoom g2.1u into behringer eq into my laney ss amp and it sounded great, then when i run them through my ashton 100w valve amp it souded crap no distortion at all, has anyone any ideas???????????????????

maybe your tube amp has more headroom try turning up the pedals a bit

and a clean sound doesn't equal a crappy sound

Are you putting the distortion before the amp or are you trying to run it through the effects loop? If you are putting it through the effects loop it will have a very weak distortion sound (more like a volume boost) always run it before your amp.

^ If its an OD pedal, it will act like that. A typical high gain pedal like a TL-2 or a Metal Muff will sound the same whether in the loop or before the preamp.

Honestly speaking, I suspect a troll. I have never heard of pedals distorting on an SS amp and not distorting on a tube amp.

I googled that pedal- its not an OD pedal or a booster- its a proper dist pedal. SO it should sound the same no matter what you use it on.

Its really strange sounds really good on ss, i'm running it in front of the amp

The only thing i can think of is a fault on the valve amp

I'm stumped then, try another pedal?

Tbh, a 100watt tube-amp will have to turned up pretty loud to get any sort of tube-saturation...
