Are distortion pedals best to be played through a clean channel on a amp or through a distorted setting. I would imagine that if you did it through a dirty sound it would sound horrible. Also is there mush point in getting a pedal if you spend lots of money on say a marshall amp, or would u best to just get a distortion pedal and use any old amp for the clean to play it though? thanks
it really depends on what tone you're after, and what the pedal and amp in question are...
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Yeah, +1 to what Dave said.

If you're amps distortion is pants then you might choose to use it on the clean channel so it is your main distortion, others choose to layer it on top of their distortions, etc.
