Hello all, first post new to guitar, im 13 just bought myself a guitar and an amp, anyway just wondering to get a real distortion effect by a pedal, but can you get the same effect by just the amp?

Thanks for looking, and for th help.

What kind of amp do you have? If it has good enough gain on the distortion channel, the pedal shouldn't be necessary.

This is really not a technique question.

You can get good distortion sounds out of both pedals and amps and sometimes using gain from both but I have yet to hear a pedal on it's own that completely matches a good amp.
