Hey,

I have a Fender Blues Jr and just wondering what you guys would do for overdrive

Would you use the amp's natural OD or would you put the amp on clean and use a pedal as an OD channel?

what usually sounds better? my pedal is a Keeley modded BD2
Gibson Les Paul 60's Neck
Fender Blues Junior
Boss BD-2 - Keeley Phat Mod
Vox V848 Wah

what music do you play?
what tone do you like?
if you already have the pedal, why dont you compare and see which you like best?

Can't you use the BD-2 on the dirty channel to give you more distortion?

I'd prefer amp overdrive, but yeah, for lower volumes, you're going to have to go with a pedal.

assuming you can crank it, I'd set the amp up for a crunch, with master volume on 10, roll off the guitar's volume for clean, and (with the guitar's volume back up again) kick in the pedal when you need it, or for a solo boost.

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.

The amp's natural OD is amazing, but not at all highish gain or anywhere near.

With the amp's pre-amp OD cranked, it sounds like mud.

An OD is great with the amp cleanish.
