Now that I'm lined up with some sweet pedals for me, I'm finding that my Matamp 1224MKII just isn't cuttin' it. It's getting to be so hard to dial in a nice chimey clean, it doesn't seem to like my Keeley Compressor and the list goes on. I was enamored by this's amp versatility as far as Class A/AB, different wattage selections via pushbutton etc. Well, I think the honeymoon is over!! Is the Dr. Z Route 66 a pedal friendly amp? I am using the following: Teese Wizard wah Keeley Compressor Keeley Fuzz Head Keeley Twilight mod MT-2 HBE Psilocybe My Fuzz Head sounds better with some grit from an amp or another gritty pedal in front of it and I'm thinking of getting Keeley's modded DS-1 for my Marshall tones so all I really need this amp to do is sound sweet clean at bedroom level and a little above, enough to keep up with a normal hitting drummer and bass player in a small room when played through a 1x12 cab. The Route 66 seems like it might be right in the power department (33 watts) where I can goose up the volume a bit and not worry about the amp breaking up. Big key with the Fuzz Head is it likes Class A amps. Don't know if the Z is or not. If the Z is not a good fit, how about the Fuchs Blackjack 21 or Groove Tubes Soul-O-50?
