Can you guys give me a quick introduction on this so I can understand it better? I have a Mesa Boogie RA100H and I want to know how I achieve both kinds of distortion and what are their qualities/uses? For example, for acquiring Power amp distortion I need to crank up the master of a mode, right?
To acquire power amp distortion, you need to crank the overall Master so that your ears are bleeding. Also, power amp distortion is said to have more "sag". Think about a squishy bottom end.

Yeah, and as far as I've heard power amp distortion is more your classic rock sound, and pre-amp is more your modern sound. Pre-amp distortion you'd get with hot pickups and a boost pedal or something.
