Why do people say fender distortion sucks... I find it to be the best out there SS and Tube i have about 7 distortion pedals but the only one i use is a tube screamer and that explains itself anyways i feel like opening up a discusion about amp distortions

i don't think so many of the amps have good distortion on its own.
like marshalls don't have "that" much of distortion.
if u want any, i guess u might just need a pedal.
but ur set man -.- u got a ts9

i'm planning to get a Fender Blues deville or the Hot Rod they're really nice.
im gonna add an overdrive pedal like MXR M-133 or the TS9

I don't like natural Fender distortions. They have no body to them. I'm not a metal guy, I just don't like them. I play a Boogie Mark IV.

You guys aren't turning your amps up loud enough, especially if you have a Fender tube amp...

Fenders don't have distortion, though, so the topic is irrelevent. They simply go into overdrive (loudness as opposed to a distortion of the signal from the guitar). It's the best natural overdrive I have heard out of any amp.

The non-tube Fenders are easily surpassed, though. When it comes to solid state, you can do better than Fender. It's hard to beat their tube amp standard...

On my twin reverb, theres no OD, but with a pedal, theres NOTHING thin about it. However when i record, it sounds like an old am radio... Its so weird.
