So this is just a quick question about distortion pedals, I hear people say that you should buy a tube amp and crank it up in response to the question "Which distortion pedal should I get?". Will you still get a nice sound if you use a tube amp that's cranked and put a pedal into it too? Because I've played some tube amps that they just don't seem to distort up around the top.

tl;dr: does a distortion pedal sound good in a tube amp

Also one other question, how much wattage in a tube amp would be good for a bedroom amplifier that might see a jam session one day?

hm. most high gian tube amps come with distortion on it. why dont you use that and put an overdrive with it for even more gain and crunch? and if it doesnt break up like you like, then use the distortion. i dont see a problem with that.

Nup, I said that some don't really break up around the top.

Basically I'm asking if an overdrive/OD sounds good with a tube amp.
