And yeah I don't recommend using a distortion pedal with an amp like that.

If you need more gain (??) use an overdrive pedal, not a distortion pedal. Distortion pedal will sound like ****.

100% Agreed.

TS, I honestly don't think you'll need anymore gain. But if you want to and if you can try out the amp, ask them if you can try out a Tubescreamer or a Boss super overdrive? Then do a boost trick, low drive, high volume and mess about with the tone. This'll help push the power tubes more.

distortion pedal + amp distortion usually = muddy, buzzy, feedbacky tone. Distortion pedals are usually meant for running through a clean setting.

What you want to boost an already distorted tube amp is an overdrive pedal.

I was at the store trying one

a 6262 that is, coz my guitarist has a 6505+.

They werent that similar to me. Like he got metalcore triviumish bfmv tones at jam, and at the store, the 6262 was either muddy/tinny.

No real BALLS

try a 333xl if ur thinkin of gettin a bugera

I tried my MT-2 on the clean channel of my 5150 when I had it one time when I was just jamming with my friends and playing with all my pedals. It actually really didn't sound bad, better than the p.o.s. MT-2 usually sounds, but yes there was a lot of feedback, but I used it like you would use an OD pedal, distortion at 0, volume up.

I really don't know why you'd want to use a distortion pedal through it, it has plenty of gain by itself. I just tried it cause I didn't have a footswitch for the amp and was using a lot of clean/slightly overdriven stuff and I needed a bigger boost to get higher gain

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I've heard a 5150 boosted with a Boss DS-1. As long as you know don't set the gain on the amp too high and know how to set the DS-1, it can sound pretty damn good. If you're just looking for more distortion out of the amp, maybe you should try cranking it for once.
