I play rock music. Nothing tooo heavy.. but the guitars all distorted for the most part with a good amount of gain... i've owned a VHT Pitbull, A Zinky Superfly, Zinky Mofo, Splawn Quickrod, Line 6 Vetta 2 and a bunch more... The VHT was probably my favorite but none of the amps have ever made me super happy in a live situation.. Does anyone here take a clean amp (Matchless, Fender Vibroking..) that have awesome clean tones... and put pedals in front to take them to that full on saturated sound or is that just pointless? that is my next step i guess.. i've wanted a vibroking forever because of the amazing tone from the basic amp.. i'm just worried when i get in a situation with my band.. it's not going to sound as pretty as i hoped with it all dirtied up.. any opinions? thanks!
