I use an Allen Old Flame quite a bit these days. Between this amp and my pedals I am able able to easily get vintage drive and vintage high gain types of sounds. It's a looser, saggier sound. Sometimes even a little fuzzy. What my boosts and TS-inspired pedals haven't been able to get with this amp is a modern high gain sound. For a few songs I need liquid, tight, big sounding gain from a pedal that I can stick in front of this amp. Keep in mind that the amp is already pretty overdriven. True Bypass I'd like the low end response to be very deep and tight, but I don't want the mids totally scooped. I would like to be able to control the gain and EQ I'd also like to be able to control the volume so that I can get a few extra DBs when the pedal is engaged. It'll be for high gain leads and rhythm. Small Fry? Crunch Box? Tonebone? Sansamp? (I have an old GT-2 that almost gets the job done) Thanks.
