I just got my Peavey Vypyr 30 head in the mail today and was playing with the factory tones and such. I have a question though. I love my Boss DS-1 pedal and I wanted to use it with this new head/cab set up (which is my first because all I've ever used are combos) but when I plugged my pedal in and turned it onto the distortion channel, even on the peavey's clean channel, it sounds all muddy and unrecognizable. Does anyone know what I can do to make my pedal work with my amp head? Otherwise I'll have to send it back and get a different head, because I need to be able to switch channel with a pedal and I want to be able to use my Boss DS-1. Thanks!

It won't. Ditch the DS1, it'll sound like ass through a modeler.

Get a Sanpera I, throw the DS-1 away.

The amp's distortion will sound ten times better than the ds-1.
Just get a Sanpera.

Pedals work great into my Vypyr 60 IMO. That includes delay, phaser, wah and a Bad Monkey. But yeah, I don't think I would purposely buy a modeling amp knowing that I HAD to use a DS-1 into it.

Which Peavey clean channel are you referring to? Did you try it with the Twin setting on green?

Assholing aside, really do look into the Sanpera, TS. It will be much, much more useful to you than a dirt pedal.
