    Hello. I have been just plugging straight in my classic 30 since I bought it and now am thinking about getting some pedals. The big muff is on my list I'm just wondering what other pedals people use. Modulation, overdrives, high gain, delays?
    Thanks

    That will get you a long way on a modest budget.

    Classic 30 is a good amp. I have a classic 50 as my practice amp, and they take pedals really well.

    Pretty much anything that appeals to you will work with that amp, lot of clean headroom, and takes pedals extremely well.

    I'm a fan of those amps.
    Can be had cheap & to me they're like a fender with a drive channel most fenders wish they had.

    They'll take what ever pedals you want em to & do it well.

    My must haves fx wise are a few shades of dirt, a few shades of delay & some trem.
    I use a few other things but those are my essentials.

    Owned a "Classic 50" for about 5 years, awesome, awesome amp. It took pedals great. I think I used a late Tubescreamer and it was perfect. The drive ch. on the amp is real good to. Maybe just use a boost with it.

    Those amps aren't picky when it comes to dirt pedals. Whatever you throw at it should sound good. Just pick whatever works for your style of playing.

    I've had a Classic 30 for a few year now and love it. The OD channel with a CMatmods Signa Drive pushing it is fantastic!!!

    Get a delay. Get some type of modulation. Get a TS, a Muff, a BD-2, and a Fuzz Face of some sort and you'll be all set!

    The clean channel of the Classic 30 takes pedals very well. I've used one for years, and it sounds great! I did change the speaker out to a Mojotone BV-30H, which I love.
