Hi guys

I don't care so much for all the modulation presets

Does the amp do classic fender clean tones?

Does it take pedal well?
I've only played the combo version once, but I'd say yes, it has excellent, outstanding, lush Fender cleans (and more than one version of them.)

The other surprising thing was that it could even do extreme metal tones, and they sounded decent. It's a highly versatile amp that sounds amazing for the price. I don't know how it would take pedals. Not sure it needs anything, to be honest.
The cleans are great and it takes pedals just fine. I have the original XD and love it.
