So I've recently become smitten with my amp's tone sans dirt pedals, just riding the volume knob for clean to mean with the amp set well inside breakup territory with the knob wide open. Love it. I tried it years ago and for some reason wasn't all about it. Now I am. For you, TGP, what are your favorite amps to play through WITHOUT drive pedals? With the amp(s) you mention, what setting (ie venue) do you usually play in and what genre(s) do you use the amp for? GO!
