Does it bother anybody else that every time someone is demoing an amp they always say, "and it cleans up really well when you rollback the volume on your guitar"? Well of course it does, but now your tone sucks and nobody can hear you in the mix! I know there're a lot of "knob riders" who would disagree, but it's highly impractical in a band setting. I much prefer using OD pedals set at equal volume as my clean tone for dirt. Then if the song requires volume dynamics, i can achieve them dirty or clean with my guitars volume knob.
