I've got a Blackstar HT-20. On it's own it maxes out in the hard rock range. But with an OD pedal it'll get to 80s thrash, which is about the level I want. The only problem is, with a pedal there's a lot of noise. Even if I turn the volume on the guitar all the way off, there's hiss. Do I need a noise gate? I've tried three different OD pedals, all of them have this problem. If I don't use a pedal the amp is almost completely silent.
how do you have the pedal set?
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
