Can anyone help me?

I love using pedal distortion because it is much easier to get those levels of distortion from a single channel amp by using a "distortion button", compared to having to change my amp settings every time I need the distortion. BUT typically, amp distortion is going to be better than pedal distortion. Most typical metal tones are had by getting a "metal-voiced" amp, cranking it to a thick crunch, then boosting it just a bit over the top with an overdrive pedal like a Tubescreamer. Buying an amp FOR a pedal is a little counter productive, then, wouldn't you think?

That said, Wampler does good stuff and I imagine any proper tube combo, within reason, would work fairly nicely with his drive pedals. But if you have not bought the Triple Wreck yet, I would strongly suggest to bump your funds with it and look for something like the Peavey 6505 used, and snag a TS9 while you are at it.

^ yeah pretty much. i mean, it's his call of course, but buying an amp to suit a pedal (especially for this style of music) is kind of backwards, as you said. But if that's what he wants, that's fair enough.
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.
