Ok, I've heard solid state amps and pedals don't mix. What's your take on this? Also, what are you supposed to put in an effects loop? Are there things that go in effects loops and certain things that go from guitar to amp? How does it works?
#2
they ca do fine just that alot of pedals are made as boosts for tube amps and you dont want your transistors to clip much

and for effects loop theres no rules but usually boosts and wahs and things like that go i th efront and thhngs like chorus,delay,reverb go in the loop

i gigged with a fender frontman with a bunch of boss pedals for ages. sounded decent. not brilliant but definately sounded better than some people playing mesa's and vox's. just gotta know how to get the most out of what you are using.

Agreed!
I use a solid state and it takes pedals just fine. A TS is more or less associated with tube amps, but they work fine in solid states. I don't dig tube amps too much though...

Jazz chorus will eat your pedal alive and sound amazing. The rest? Meh.

Yes oh yes.
I have an engl screamer and a matchless spitfire now so don't take me for one to toot the solid state horn. But on a budget it more than did the job. I would use a boss ds-2,sd-1 and marshall guvnor 2 for dirt and a small clone and boss auto wah as other pedals. I made those sound better then many people made their dual recs sound.

That being said the tone i have now is not even in the same ball park.

I gigged with a Vox AD50VT with a Boss ML2 once.

Sounded alright.

I play a Pritchard Black Dagger, and it's sound, harmonics, clarity, etc., are superior to any tube amp I've played. It handles the effects even better as there is far less muddiness than is associated with tube amps (you can really hear delay and other modulations, for instance). As well, I prefer even my drives/distortions in the effects loop... at least with this amp... whereas I did not care for drives/distortions in the effects loop with the tubes I owned. It has much to do with the circuitry and how the amp is design, I suspect, and I'm uncertain of a solid state that can compare to a Pritchard.

I would recommend the marshal MG100

Very versatile and quality sound. It should treat you well

If you can stack two or more gain pedals, you can run a dirt box into a solid state amp.

If the solid state's preamp stage is being clipped by being slammed by the pedals, it may or may not produce a desirable tone.

I have found that with solid state, that less is more the louder it gets.

i've had to use SS amps for shows as well in the past. with some work they can do the job. tone of the gods no but useable yes. overdrives really don't work well but a distortion pedal run through a clean signal can yield good results. often your audience can't really tell how good your tone is unless it's truly aweful.
