All right. I've never seriously sat down and enjoyed the beautiful clean tones that come from an old school fender amp. I played my teachers tonight, and I didn't want to put my guitar down.

I play a lot of blues, and lightly distorted classic rock. But I also occasionally drive my amp and play Sabbath like metal, some Zeppelin, some stuff like scorpions and def leppard, and occasionally stuff like Three Days Grace.

I was wondering if with a decent OD/distortion pedal like an MXR or something if I could drive a fender blues amp into a range of late 70's-80's metal.

I use a barber burn unit. Can set one side up for overdrive the other for distortion. Check them out at barbers electronics lots of sound clips.

Just send it to Randall Smith. I am sure he can take care of the fact that your amp doesn't "Boogie" enough.

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

I'm not entirely sure that a regular overdrive can push it to do metal.
Try out the Zvex, or basically get whatever you budget allows you to do.

^The same thing. Imagine that.

TS, if you pull two power tubes from a Twin, run the normal channel, kick in the gain boost, use humbuckers, and put an EQ or Green-esque OD out front of it, you'll get some very nice gain. No mesa though, if that's what you're looking for.
