i wouldnt buy an amp depending on a distortion pedal you have. For 100-300 you're looking at Roland cubes, peavey valvekings, that kinda thing, ultimatley you'll want an amp where you wont require the DS-2.

woah woah wait.

You don't dictate what amp you have on one pedal you have.

lol double post really necessary? Asking for an amp to fit a pedal is a little ridiculous. The way distortion pedals are designed you loose a lot of your original signal, so typcially dist pedals are used when people don't have nicer amps and/or a good OD pedal.

Which is why almost every signal metal and rock band use the gain from their amps, or an overdrive pedal. Granted grunge and punk arn't typcially known for their amazing tones, but with 300£ you could get a decent tube amp, or if you went used something pretty decent for 300£

just my two cents. the majority of tone and sound comes through your amp, your better off finding an amp that suits your tone desires then buying an amp based off a distortion pedal

Do you already have the DS-2?

Get a Laney VC30. Use the drive channel on that, and compare it to your DS-2.

That said, I run a DS-2 through my VC30, but I use the drive and the DS-2 for different things.

i also do this, same amp, same pedal. This is gonna seem like i'm plugging, but check the song on my profile ('titles are hard', not the other two things, they are demos of a squier thats been tampered with) for an example of how it can sound with this pedal/amp combination.

you shouldn't really base the decision for the amp on what pedals you have though.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

that's what i'd do. the vc30 is a really nice amp for £300. obviously try it first to make sure you like it, though.

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.
